in formal finnish it's
mother - äiti
father - isä

i say äiti and isi. not very different. of course there are some other words for them, mutsi for mother (helsinki accent) and some others what i can't remember :/

Although we have the pet forms "mamma" and "pappa", it is quite common, especially in rural Western Norway, to both refer to and adress one´s parents as "mor" (= mother) and "far" (father). I do that myself and when I translate that directly into English I suppose I sound rather formal.

In Norway it saounds a bit childish and bourgeois to refer to your parents as "mamma" and pappa". "Mor" (=mother) and far (=father") sounds more rural, national romantic and traditional.

Are you a googolplexian years old?

Ignore that person above going by the name ''Kirk''. That's not the real Kirk, but a troll. The real Kirk would not ask such a strange question.

No,I think he would...

A googol is the large number 10-100, that is, the digit 1 followed by one hundred zeroes.

Computer programmers would write 10^100. It's probably caught on across most of cyberspace. I'd go for this over 10-100 which looks more like ten minus one hundred.

A googolplex could be considered "10 duotrigintillion".
