So Just How Much Is A Trillion Dollars?

So we’ve all heard that a trillion dollars is a million dollars a day since Christ was born, or whatever the numbers are yada yada. It can be a hard concept to wrap your head ’round. Being a grunt it’s usually easier just to say “that’s a whole shitpot full of money.”, or in the current vernacular, a “whole murthabucket full.”

Well, thanks to FrankJ we can get a better understanding of just what a trillion looks like.

Thanks a whole shitpot Bambi.

    Just as information, Crunchie (and fer gits ‘n shiggles), one trillion one dollar bills laid end to end will reach from the earth to the center of the sun.

    Where it will promptly be incinerated. Pretty much the same result as Bambi’s stimulapooza.

    LC Wil, S.C.E. says:

    No, unfortunately, if you just burn the cash, it doesn’t cause inflation.

    As of EOM February, the dollar bill in you pocket is worth 85 percent of what it was on the first of January, and Citi stock is really worth only about 42 cents . . .

    Isn’t THAT special?

    Check THIS out, from Putin.

    A warning from One Who Would Know Caveman?
    This guy would know the difference between the writing on the wall, and the pockmarks.

    “President Obama and his fellow Democrats are either idiots or deliberately trying to destroy their own economy.”

    The answer would be BOTH. Pretty damn sad when a KGB Spook has to warn a US President about the dangers of Socialism.

    But there is hope. Take away Teh Magic Mulatto’s™ teleprompter and he’s sure to spout off the truth in between the uh’s, um’s, and you know’s in short order.

    LC Gunsniper says:

    Obama has relied on a teleprompter through even the shortest announcements and when repeating the same lines on his economic stimulus plan that he’s been saying for months — whereas past presidents have mostly worked off of notes on the podium except during major speeches, such as the State of the Union.


    That’s my jugears!

    A dollar bill is 2.61 inches wide and 6.14 long and weighs a gram.

    A trillion is a million millions. A trillion dollars weighs 1,102,311 tons.

    If your grandma knitted an afghan a million dollar bills long and a million dollar bills long it would be 96 miles by 41 miles.

    If you used it to cover Disney World in Florida it would look like this.

    A trillion here, a trillion there … pretty soon, you are talkin’ about real money!

    Is it bad that I’m trying to calculate how many hookers I can get for 1 trillion? :em01:

    Well, are we talking high class hookers, Bunny Ranch hookers, or street-walking disease-ridden hookers?

    $5000, $500, or $50?

    I prefer quality to quantity anyway, which is why I don’t deal with hookers.

    People can no longer say “that’s a shitload of money” because that is actually a boat load!

    Got that one for ya’!

    This is what the trillion-dollar spenders look like.

  15. 15

    Well, sittin’ there, it just looks like a big pile of cash.

    How one sees it’s gonna’ depend on who’s it is and if it’s comin’ or goin’.

    Someone else might be all thrilled at the prospect of living comfy without effort.

    What I see is my future being hocked and smoked in a foreigner’s presidential crackpipe.
