What does one trillion look like?


You hear the number like "billion" and "trillion" bandied about all over the place, but can you really grasp the enormity of the numbers?

CLICK HERE for a brief tutorial of a visualization of what a TRILLION looks like.

Staggering, isn't it?

You're welcome.

To me, I picture a trillion dollars as a pizza the size of Ohio, with meat lover's toppings and stuffed crust, served with a slice from a life-size Empire State Building cake (vanilla and chocolate swirl, off course) and a scoop of caramel ice cream, while the Rockettes dance to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing "Funkytown." But that's just me.

Good Lord man- that is the most depressing thing I have seen all week- thanks for ruining my good "after vacation" mood.

That just brings all sorts of profanities out of my mouth (but not on this blod ;)
