177 nibbles is about 0.000000000000000000002 times as much as All Spoken Words in Human History (recorded)
In other words, it's 0.00000000000000000000180 times the amount of All Spoken Words in Human History (recorded), and the amount of All Spoken Words in Human History (recorded) is 560,000,000,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000000 times that amount.

Criticizing a 2002 estimate of 12,000,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000000 nibbles, linguist and University of Pennsylvania professor Mark Liberman asserted that it would actually require 99,000,000,000,000,002,097,152.0000000000000000000000000 nibbles to house a recording of all speech in human history, even at a relatively low level of quality. For the purposes of his calculations, Liberman estimated the total duration of such a project to include 416,390,367 years of continuous audio.
