I'd say the entire .*[zj]illion family means "more than a lot". :)

Prefixes to [zj]illion are added primarily for emphasis and syncopation. Order of magnitude takes a back seat to pure verbal esthetics.

Update: Who would waste a vote --'ing a joke? The words really are used to mean "a lot" with additional emphasis. Saying a "a kajillion hozillion" is just dialectical way of emphasizing "a great number".

There is so much good stuff on here to ++, I can't imagine why someone would -- a post that quibbles about word meaning.

Please don't -- me a kazillion times for whining here. :)

[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
[perldigious]: "for how I roll"... ahhh, I see what you did there stevieb.
