a ONE followed by 100 zeroes. One GOOGOLPLEX is a ONE followed by one googol zeroes. (You can't write a googolplex, even in a million years)
If someone would like to copy and paste to create a googol plex though, (1 followed by 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 zeros) it would be greatly appreciated, except for the people who own the space on this website
 So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

I would mention Graham's number, the largest number ever used in an equation, but I don't understand it to be honest. It takes a few paragraphs to even explain it's so big
3^3 is what it usually means in computer science: 33=27.
3^^3, though, is 3^(3^3)=333=327. Already a biggish number: 7,625,597,484,987.
3^^^3 is 3^^(3^^3) which is 3^^7,625,597,484,987 which is 3^(7,625,597,484,987^7,625,597,484,987). And that's already more than most people want to think about.
3^^^^3=3^^^(3^^^3), and so on. From here on, I'll use my own augmentation to the notation: 3^43 will mean 3^^^^3. The subscript indicates how many ^s there are.
Now. Start with G1=3^3^^^^33. I'll wait for your brain to stop sizzling. That's 3^^^^3 ^'s between the 3's. And you know what that can do to a number.
From there, consider G2=3^G13. Yes, that's G1 ^s. Owwwww.
Continue on in this fashion, with each number specifying the number of ^s in the next one, until you get to G63. It's no longer meaningful to say it's incredibly big, it's just too incredibly big. That is Graham's number: G63. http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=752584

That's a pretty neat link.
"Twocolour the diagonals of an Ndimensional hypercube. What is the smallest N such that there must exist a K4 of one colour whose vertices are coplanar?"
And Graham found the upper limit of it, which was G63. Kick ass!!!
