What could Chris Reynolds have bought with PayPal’s 92 quadrillion dollar goof-up
| by Anujeet Majumdar |
PayPal’s recent error that resulted in $92 quadrillion being accredited to a user’s account has thrown open the flood gates of what one can do with that much money. The amount is so mindbogglingly huge, it almost defies thought… well, almost. While the man in question, Chris Reynolds, was modest in his plans for what to do with that amount of money, namely buying the baseball team Philadelphia Phillies and paying off the US national debt, the massive amount begs the question: What could he have actually bought with $92 quadrillion in his bank account?

One of the largest diamonds in the world, the Star of Africa, which is found in one of the sceptres in Britain’s crown jewels, is valued at $400 million. The magic number could have fetched him 46,000 such diamonds, with change to spare. What if he had wanted to go to space? The magic number could have funded more than 1000 manned missions to Mars.

The worlds most expensive phone, which is a diamond encrusted iPhone 4 32GB, is valued at $8 million. He could have filled a warehouse full and not break a sweat. The world’s most expensive notebook sleeve—and this is ridiculous—is worth $11 million and comes encrusted with 8,800 rare diamonds from across the world. While the magic number could have got him hundreds of this, it may be a bit funny to see the world’s richest man carrying the most expensive laptop in a diamond encrusted sleeve.
