For those who don't know, the Thai number system does not go beyond 1 million. 1 billion is 1,000 million...1 trillion is 10,000 million and so on. The way the world is growing at such a fast rate, the need to add in new names for these numbers will be needed. Will Thais add this in, and if so...when? Is it ever discussed? It would be funny to hear Thai astronomers having a serious meeting saying "It's over a million million kilometers...fuck it, it's far, ok?!!" (yes, I'm sure they use light years as well) One side question...what does the Chinese number system use for large numbers?
