Gross dots

A gross or great dozen is equal to 144 = 122, or one dozen dozen. [1] It is a commonly used quantity by small wholesalers.

In Czech language, 144 is called "veletucet", which means "great-twelve".

Aarex Tiaokhiao calls this number duodecimal-booiol.[2]

Furthermore, it is the largest possible number of shopping hours in most weeks in Germany, since the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany forbids Sunday to be turned into a general working day.
