Visualizing a Trillion – Whoa!

via Visualizing a Trillion: Just How Big That Number Is?

if you start spending a million dollars every single day since Jesus was born, you still wouldn’t have spent a trillion dollars. 
 

A bundle of $100 notes is equivalent to $10,000 and that can easily fit in your pocket. 1 million dollars will probably fit inside a standard shopping bag while a billion dollars would occupy a small room of your house.

With this background in mind, 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000) is 1000 times bigger than 1 billion and would therefore take up an entire football field – the man is still standing in the bottom-left corner.

    I’d still like to give it a try.
