What I dont understand is why dont they just ignore the bill, why is the company continueing witha  court date? Even if they win, do they really think that man can make that much money just... appear in his hand or something? Sesh the stupidy+greed of companys today. :/

Oh wow, that's....oh wow. How can anyone talk for 23 trillion, honestly. It can be done if you gave my sudder Koko, my sudder Kiki, myself, my best friend Andriana, Koko's best friend Sharnelle, Their friend AJ, Andrewana, Jasmine, Jazzminn, Trachelle, Joseph, Mikeya, Stacie, Ashley L., Ashley S., and Amanda, all four of them one phone to share. I think that makes my point.

Don't worry, it's funny.

Although I think the funniest part is where they're not sure whether it's a mistake or whether his line was hijacked.  If you assume someone has been stealing access to his phone line since Alexander Graham Bell invented it, it would still have to cost over $3 million per minute to rack up a bill that large...and it's three orders of magnitude larger than their country's GDP.  So I think it's pretty safe to say nobody really talked for that long.
