    What does one TRILLION dollars look like?

    A billion dollars...

    A hundred billion dollars...

    Eight hundred billion dollars...

    One TRILLION dollars...

    What does that look like? I mean, these various numbers are tossed around like so many doggie treats, so I thought I'd take Google Sketchup out for a test drive and try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like.

    We'll start with a $100 dollar bill. Currently the largest U.S. denomination in general circulation. Most everyone has seen them, slighty fewer have owned them. Guaranteed to make friends wherever they go.

    A packet of one hundred $100 bills is less than 1/2" thick and contains $10,000. Fits in your pocket easily and is more than enough for week or two of shamefully decadent fun.

    [​IMG]

    Believe it or not, this next little pile is $1 million dollars (100 packets of $10,000). You could stuff that into a grocery bag and walk around with it.

    [​IMG]

    While a measly $1 million looked a little unimpressive, $100 million is a little more respectable. It fits neatly on a standard pallet...

    [​IMG]

    And $1 BILLION dollars... now we're really getting somewhere...

    [​IMG]

    Next we'll look at ONE TRILLION dollars. This is that number we've been hearing so much about. What is a trillion dollars? Well, it's a million million. It's a thousand billion. It's a one followed by 12 zeros.

    You ready for this?

    It's pretty surprising.

    Go ahead...

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you $1 TRILLION DOLLARS

    yeah it is.

    U remember the 700 billion bailout malarchy? Notice the mainstream media shied away from printing the full digits, they always used billion.

    1 Million
    1 Billion

    Doesn't really emphasise the difference.

    700,000,000
    vs
    700,000,000,000

    Also, you'd think that seeing how much bulk 1 trillion in cash if, that the Federal Reserve would have been able to keep track of 9 of the fuckers.

    there is a difference between the english and american terms for billion i believe.

    english billion = a million million, or this trillion

    american billion = a thousand million

    something like that.
