If ever there was an incentive to quit smoking, American John Muszynski has found it: he was charged $23 quadrillion for a packet of cigarettes at a service station. Yes, that’s quadrillion, a 17-digit number: $23,148,855,308,184,500.

And it’s also United States dollars, so it’s probably about a gazillion bucks in New Zealand dollars.

It took the poor sod a couple of hours on the phone to his bank to get it cleared up. I mean really, what the hell did they think he would be buying for that amount of money?
