even more if you're working in sensible european measurements where 1 trillion = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000

usually the euros come up with decent ides, that one i find lacking, as it skips whole groups of numbers without naming them. silly if you ask me

like the 1 000 000 000 group youd simply call a thousand million. i have this same qualm with the french calling "eighty" "quatre-vinge" (4 of 20)

sigh, really hope you were trolling, if you werent, here: nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijst_van_grote_getallen
and yes the french do have a word for 80 but they don't like to use it that much since its only custom in some regions > huitante instead of quatre-vingt

What are the other two amounts called over there? We have hundreds, thousands, millions, billions, then trillions. You seem to have two more sections. Or is your entire system different from ours?

kinda don't see why that makes more sense than our own system.

But I still feel like it isn't really more sensible than our own. As far as "sensibleness" goes it is pretty much the same as our own.
