Anton Purisima is suing for $2 undecillion, or $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Yes, you read that correctly. That’s a two followed by 36 zeroes, likely the largest amount anyone has ever asked for in a lawsuit, said The Times of India. As Time put it, it’s equivalent to “one trillion, times one trillion, times one trillion, times two.”

Purisima is suing New York City, Au Bon Pain, Hoboken University, Kmart, LaGuardia Airport and more for a dog bite supposedly by a “rabies infested” dog on his middle finger. He also claimed that a “Chinese couple” took pictures of the event without his permission, and he is suing LaGuardia Airport for supposedly routinely overcharging him for coffee.

Purisima is representing himself and wrote a 22 page complaint listing all the defendants he will be suing. He claims that his suffering is “priceless,” which would explain why he’s asking for $2 undecillion. He has previously sued the People’s Republic of China and banks such as Wells Fargo, JP Morgan and Wachovia.
