Yes, Smoking Is Expensive

A New Hampshire man says he swiped his debit card at a gas station to buy a pack of cigarettes and was charged over 23 quadrillion dollars.

Josh Muszynski checked his account online a few hours after the purchase and saw the 17-digit number — a stunning $23,148,855,308,184,500 (twenty-three quadrillion, one hundred forty-eight trillion, eight hundred fifty-five billion, three hundred eight million, one hundred eighty-four thousand, five hundred dollars).

That's the only way the tobacco industry is going to be able to recoup the costs of their anti-smoking lawsuits. Go ahead, smokers, keep  suing them!  At twenty three quadrillion a pack, they can afford it.
