I saw this online the other day, and couldn’t pass up sharing it with you. It’s a little startling.
This is a $100 bill. It is the largest US bill in general circulation.
A packet of one hundred $100 bills is less than 1/2″ thick and contains $10,000
Believe it or not, this next little pile is $1 million dollars (100 packets of $10,000).
Next we’ll look at ONE TRILLION dollars. This is that number we’ve been hearing about so much. 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.
So the next time you hear someone toss around the phrase “trillion dollars”… that’s what they’re talking about.
Everyone, say it with me now in your best Dr. Evil voice placing your pinky on the corner of your mouth, “One trillion dollars.”
