Want to see what $1 Billion looks like?
« on: February 04, 2009, 08:13:42 AM »
I thought everyone would like to see what $1,000,000,000 looks like.



One Billion Dollar is stacked on 12 standard pallets, alltogether 10 million 100 USD notes. One Billion Dollars is not so much about what you see but what you
could do or not do with the money. Besides, this is the most expensive piece of art ever made.

and just think...it takes 1000 piles that big to equal a trillion.
We just gave the banks 8000 piles of money that big.
That's 96,000 pallets of $100 bills.
WTF???  Time to start burning shit.

So  THAT'S what UPS delivered yesterday....
 
I come home, and they've stacked it nicely in the garage.

(I'm sure there's a bit missing, one of the pallets was already opened....just like in the picture)

Just watch for the red glow over the east coast when I start burning it for heat.....that's about all that much is good for in the global sense :)

Thanks for the pictures.  Yep, a billion is a thousand million.  A trillion is just about impossible to comprehend, thus little outrage.

I think that red glow will be followed by a mushroom cloud if you have anything to do with it! lol  ;D
