Thread: What does a trillion dollars look like?

  1. #1

    What does a trillion dollars look like?

    What does that 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.

    What does one TRILLION dollars look like?

    Might be easier with these:

    A $1 billion U.S. Treasury "Special Note" / "Diamond Certificate" was cited (and reproduced from a grainy fax) by Christopher Story in 2004 and 2005.[9] The note bears the serial numbers C321321321C (recto left) and C123123123C (recto right), each of which, Story claims, adds up to the occult number 666, supporting Story's belief in an illuminati "New Underworld Order." According to the 2004 article, the reproduction was transmitted to a Secret Service Treasury Special Agent in Bangkok in 1992, and the note itself (one of a batch of 18) was eventually seized from Leo Wanta in 2003; in the 2005 article, the note is cited as being from a "prominent solicitor in Singapore who allegedly attempted to trade it at a discount with other corrupt parties."

    And then some bum stoles your car, and sells it to a dealer. The dealer pays few hundreds of it, and sells it to some guy. That someguy doesn't have much money, that is why he is buying stolen cars. He takes a look at the trunk, and finds $50M. He buys a brand new car, and puts the rest of the money in to the trunk.

    He drives to downtown to find an apartment. Someone aproaches the car, when he is stuck on the trafficlights. That someone is YOU. You lost everything you had, and now you steal cars and sell them to dealers. You stole that someguy's car. You take a look at the trunk, and find lots of money. "Amazing coinsidence", you say. You are so happy, that you forget to control the wheel. You lose the control of your car, and drive straight to gas station's gas tank. The whole car flames up. You barely escape from the car. You watch your car burning, and you are happy you got out of there in time. Then you remember the money. "Noooooooooooooo!", you shout. "I shouldn't have put the money on the trunk at first place." You say.


    In short: It is not a good idea to put your money in to a trunk.

    True. And, to be honest. Million bucks is not that much money. Just think about it. If you spend $2K/month. You live roughly 41 years with it. And if you had million bucks in your bank account, would you spend only $2K/month? I wouldn't.

    I'm not trying to say million is nothing. And that I wouldn't want million bucks.

    And, if you have million bucks to build your internet business, then it is a lot of money. But if you are young, you can't live the rest of your life with only million bucks.
