Flipping over 5318008

I can see how censorship is necessary sometimes, especially on a computer or calculator:

The killion, as every mathematician knows, is a number so big it can kill you. Newton discovered it, and Einstein insisted that all computers be equipped with a governor which would shut off the machine if the number killion was approached.
All well and good. But this act of censorship, no doubt well intentioned and "for the children," seems way overboard.
