My wife just got a link sent to her by a fellow teacher that points to a site that shows visually what a trillion dollars and two cents would look like if you put it all in one place. Check it out:

What does one TRILLION dollars look like?

But be careful, DO NOT CLICK ON THE SITE. Just use your scroll bars to move around on it, because it will throw one of the more obnoxious ads evah in your face just when you least expect it.

Oh, I was only kidding about the two cents part.

    Okay, hilarious, the first time I saw that picture, I only saw the last picture (the trillion dollars) and didn’t see the ‘person’ standing next to it, so it didn’t look like that much! 🙂 So funny!

    Really? You’re always giving us your two cents worth.

    Am I wrong here, I thought when we in the US (i.e. the US government)referred to a billion it was one thousand million. The linked article uses one million million as a billion. It would still be an impressive pile.
