Big Numbers

Gives a bit of perspective: 

"There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers." 
—Richard Feynman, physicist, Nobel laureate (1918-1988)
