In $100 bills:



While you will never see a trillion dollars in person (nature's way of protecting your sanity amidst the bailout), computers can do the job without breaking a sweat—or worrying about retirement.

This particular rendering was made through Google SketchUp, Google's 3D modeling software. Measurements were taken of a $10,000 stack of $100 bills (just half an inch thick!) and pretty much multiplied from there using simple geometry. In that trillion dollar shot, each pallet holds $100 million...and the pallets are double stacked.

As for that red blob on the left? It's a human.

Maybe just a large shoebox, like what boots or iceskates come in for me.

yeah, I'd be ok with $66.7 million.
I've actually held more than that in my hands (well, pieces of paper worth more)...it's a very odd feeling. My boss didn't like it when I looked at him, glanced down and said "this is enough to make it worthwhile." ;D

Heh, add 80% to that and you'll have what we're going to be up to by the end of the year.

Somebody doublecheck me, because I've been wrong before: :tard: (OK, maybe usually)

It looks to me like there are 50 pallets across and 100 deep. (and 2 high)

If each pallet has $100,000,000 you'd need 1000of them for a trillion. There are 10,000 pallets so it would be $10 trillion pictured.

$1,000,000,000,000 / $100,000,000 = 10,000

You need 10,000 pallets of 100 million each to make 1 trillion.
