The magnitude of Graham's Number is difficult to fathom - Ron Graham himself attempts to explain. WHAT IS the number: http://youtu.be/HX8bihEe3nA Extra footage: http://youtu.be/rGWuimr5CGQ Our original Graham's Number video: http://youtu.be/XTeJ64KD5cg Any errors in this video are mine (Brady's) in editing... For example 3^^^3 is actually even bigger than I say... Graham's Number is just too big for my small brain!
