    TRILLION DOllars


    What does one TRILLION dollars look like?


    [​IMG]

    All this talk about "stimulus packages" and "bailouts"...

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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 forweek 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 walkaround with it.

    [​IMG]

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

    [​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...

    Scroll down...

    Ladies and gentlemen... I give you $1 trillion dollars...

    [​IMG]

    (And notice those pallets are double stacked.)

    So the next time you hear someone toss around the phrase "trillion dollars"... that's what they're talkingabout.

    One million can easily fit in a duffle bag.

    wow, that's wild. funny how in movies when they ask for pretty substantial amounts of money, it always fits perfectly in a brief case. guess the propsdepartment didn't look it up too much
