    typewritten zeros :(

    what does "typewritten zeros" mean?
    ex:
    the number of thought that the brain capable of producing is 1 followed by 10.5 million kilometres of standard typewritten zeros?

    Re: typewritten zeros :(

    Here's a typewritten zero: "0".

    The measure of 10.5 million kilometres is of course a very inexact estimate. It assumes a size of, roughly, "0" rather than "0" or "0". 'Typewritten' means 'as produced by a typewriter' - presumably a manual one!
