1. How Much is a Trillion? INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW

2. What does one TRILLION dollars look like? All this talk about “stimulus packages” and “bailouts”... A billion dollars... A hundred billion dollars... Eight hundred billion dollars... One TRILLION dollars...

3. What does one TRILLION dollars look like? Just what does that really look like? I mean, these various numbers are tossed around like so many doggie treats. So, I thought I’d take Google Sketchup out for a test drive and try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like.

4. Here’s a hundred bucks. We’ll start with a $100 dollar bill. Currently the largest U.S. denomination in general circulation. Guaranteed to make friends wherever they go.

5. Serious Coin A packet of one hundred, $100 bills is … … less than 1/2" thick and contains $10,000. Fits in your pocket easily.

6. One Million Dollars!!! Believe it or not, that little pile down there is $1 million dollars (100 packets of $10,000). You could walk around with it in a grocery bag.

7. Yeah BABY !!! While a measly $1 million looked a little unimpressive, $100 million is a little more respectable. It fits neatly on a standard pallet...

8. Holy Cow! And $1 BILLION Dollars... Now We’re Really Getting Somewhere...

9. Please Remain Seated! Next we’ll look at ONE TRILLION DOLLARS. That’s the number we’ve been hearing so much about. What’s a TRILLION DOLLARS? It’s a million, MILLION DOLLARS. It’s a thousand, BILLION DOLLARS. It’s a one followed by 12 zeros. YOU READY FOR THIS?

10. And notice those pallets are DOUBLE STACKED $100 DOLLAR BILLS! Ladies and gentlemen...

11. I Never Realized!
