comment What is this 10^40 thing?
yes, I agree that it's "just a number". I still wonder about what it was used for. Wikipedia has something about the Chinese version of these "large numbers": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_numerals and apparently number from 10^48 upwards came from Buddhist texts, but it's far from clear if there were any other reasons for needing a specific word for the "smaller" quantities.

@istrasci - I tried to salvage it by updating the body of the question.

@mac example: "the first months at the new job were stressful because I found myself forced outside my comfort zone" is an example.

I didn't make it up, I used Tangorin.com, which I suppose in turns uses EDICT.
