In 2017, as I write Reid will tend to use number like “ten thousand billion and seventy four” in a pinch to describe something really very very large. But there was a time, perhaps two years ago, when Reid would use “ten thousand five hundred fifty four” as his go-to big number of choice. Before that it was 10,555, which he apparently felt was not sufficiently nuanced. While ten 10,554 is long behind us now, I’m glad we are still in the days of “ten thousand billion.”

One thought on “10,554
