I just watched a video posted by ProvokingThought and was amazed. Do YOU know how much a trillion is?
Well, a stack of a trillion dollar bills will reach a third of the way to the moon, and a trillion seconds is almost 32,000 years, but the example that amazed me most was this one:
If, beginning the day Jesus was born, you spent a million dollars a day, today you would only have spent about 3/4 of a trillion.
I am trying not to badmouth the current administration, since the election is over and it’s too late to warn people, so I’m not saying a word (not one word!) against the economic stimulus package. But isn’t it interesting that spending a million dollars a day for two thousand years would be roughly equivalent to what our government wants to spend on this?
