Godzillagram

<networking> /god-zil'*-gram/ (From Japan's national hero and datagram) 1. A network packet that in theory is a broadcast to every machine in the universe. The typical case is an IP datagram whose destination IP address is [255.255.255.255]. Fortunately, few gateways are foolish enough to attempt to implement this case!

2. A network packet of maximum size. An IP Godzillagram has 65,536 octets. Compare super source quench.
