Interesting. Never knew that anyone ever used factorials other than as, shall I say, a "mathematically interesting" thing and then moving on.

When it comes to extremely large (or small) numbers, I always understood that the standard was to use powers of 10, for example, googling for the weight of the earth, the result is expressed as 5.972x10^24 kg.
