Minor misrepresentation in tabloid blurb

After a quick bounce on Wolfram Alpha, I witnessed that the blurb 'known universe now jammed with cookies!' may be false when the player hasn't baked over 8*10^84 cookies in a single ascension. Pls fix, ty.

    This tabloid appears after you get the A world filled with cookies achievement (bake 10 billion cookies a second). Doing some math (and with some help from wolfram alpha), I have determined that:
    • The universe is 4x10^83 liters in volume (4x10^32 cubic light years)
    • A cookie with a height of 1 cm and a diameter of 8 cm is about 0.05 L
    • Given this, the universe should hold 8x10^84 or 8 septenvigintillion cookies, as OP said. This assumes that there are no gaps in between the cookies, so these are liquid or powdered cookies.
    • If you want whole cookies, the most space-efficient way to pack them is in a honeycomb pattern. Using this strategy would give a volume of 0.055 L per cookie, and a maximum of 7.2x10^84 (7.2 septenvigintillion) cookies.
    Since the tabloid shows up after 10 billion cookies a second, it would take you 2.28x10^67 years to bake enough cookies for it to be true. Considering the age of the universe is only ~14 billion years, this is quite a long time.
