Came across this video on the Dual Income No Kids blog (dinkfinance.com). The video gives details about just what 'one trillion' is. Interesting points such as 1 trillion one dollar bills stacked would reach 1/3 of the way to the moon, and if you started spending 1 million dollars a day from the day Jesus was born to today, you *still* would not have spent one trillion dollars.
And, as an update to the previous post, I said that the national debt was over 1 trillion dollars. That's true. It's over 10 trillion dollars. Which, I guess, would reach the moon three times and more.
