PayPal Randomly Credits Man with $92,000,000,000,000,000

PayPal just made 56-year-old Chris Reynolds a quadrillionaire. Yes, a quadrillionaire. Only thing is, it was an error.Reynolds opened his account on Friday only be surprised with a balance of $92,233,720,368,547,800—922,337,203,685,478 times more than the $100 or so worth of transactions he usually does per month on PayPal. And very obviously some sort of mistake.For the record, quadrillion is a real number. Its 1300 times more than the entire worlds GDP, and trillions and trillions more than the $73 billion fortune of Carlos Slim, the richest man in the world. And though there are random financial clerical errors all the time, this 17-figure sum is just about the biggest PayPal flub weve ever seen. Unfortunately, Reynolds didnt get to keep any of his accidental quadrillions. PayPal has already corrected his balance. Back to the soup line. [UPI, Philly.com, IBTimes via Circa]
