A good way to approximate large factorials is Stirling's Formula:
ln(N!) ~ N*ln(N) - N

Using my trusty Windows calculator, 20000! is approximately 1077,334. You definitely could not have calculated it by simple multiplication...
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
