Awesome Numbers in the News


Charles Diggs, facing child pornography charges, was found with supposedly a record haul for New Jersey -- 325,000 child-porn images and files at his Roselle home in October.


The Justice Department revealed in an October court filing that former National Security Agency contractor Harold Martin III, 51, had stolen at least 500 million pages of "sensitive government files," bit by bit over two decades. (Bonus questions: How does no one notice, for years, and anyway, how many total pages of "sensitive government files" are there?)
