:thumbsup: OMG!

That's scary to put it into actual perspective of what a trillion dollars looks like.

:trumpet: your family would set for a few generations (probably more) with just one of those pallets, oh well guess we can only dream of that kind of money :inlove:, Well we have to dream about it, Bill Gates doesn't :thumbsup:, he is estimated as being the richest man in the World again even though his fortune declined by $18 Billion, Warren Buffet the former top rich list man had his fortune drop by $25 billion to $37 billion mainly because of the shares in his firm having plummeted from there high of $150,000 per share to $82,800 per share (As of now - http://www.google.co.uk/finance?tkr=1&q=NYSE:BRK.A) meaning the total of shares in his company is now worth over $128 billion from over $232 billion at there peak (Ouch!! :flowers:).

To put things in another perspective, ....

If you were a one in a million type of person... there would be a million of you.

Current estimates put the number of stars in the Milky Way at somewhere between 100 and 400 billion.

One trillion is 1,000,000,000,000 - 10 to the 12th power, or a thousand, thousand, thousand, thousand.

If they divide $1 trillion among every American ... Each person would get $3,271.

$1 trillion would be enough money to buy about a 1,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies for every person in the United States.

A trillion barrels of oil would - at current consumption levels - fuel the world for about 33 years.

With $1 trillion, you could put 8.2 million students through a full four years of private college..

A trillion dollar budget would cover the market values of Microsoft, Wal-Mart, Google, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Time Warner and Apple, according to February 2007 figures in Forbes magazine; and you would be left with more than $23 billion in change to pick up a few 'smaller' companies.

If you had $1 trillion and you spent it at a rate of $1 per second, it would take you 31,709 years to go broke.
