A billion minutes ago Jesus was on Earth.
It will take the United States government 3 hours and 40 minutes to spend a billion dollars.
A trillion is 999.9 billion. It is almost impossible to conceive. If you had gone into business on the day Jesus was born, and your business lost a million dollars a day, day in and day out, 365 days a year, it would have taken you until October 2737 to lose a trillion dollars.
A trillion is a million million.
To count out One Trillion ($1,000,000,000,000) dollars nonstop without sleeping or eating it would take Thirty-Nine Thousand (39,000) years.
If you spent $1000 every second, day and night, you wouldn't hit a trillion dollars for 30 years.
If you asked for a trillion dollars at your bank in $100 bills, it would make a stack 800 miles high.
Laid end-to-end, a trillion dollars worth of $1 bills would extend from the Earth to the Sun.
It would take a military jet flying at the speed of sound, reeling out a roll of dollar bills behind it, 14 years before it reeled out one trillion dollar bills.
If you were locked in a vault and you could keep every dollar bill you initialed, (we're assuming that you initial one bill every second and that you don't need to eat, sleep or take comfort breaks!) Twelve days of non-stop effort would earn you a million dollars.
120 days would give you $10 million.
1200 days - $100 million. That's over three years to get a paltry $100 million ... Still a long way to go ...
After 31.7 years, you'd be a billionaire.
But wait, there's more ... we're still only at the billionaire stage ... Keep initialing!
After initialing a dollar bill every second without stopping, it would take you 31,709.8 years to get to your first trillion.
I know what a $100,000 house looks like. I've seen lots of them. And, I suppose I can comprehend a million dollars. If I picture a city block with ten houses, each worth $100,000, that's a million dollars.
So how many blocks would I have to fill with these $100,000 houses to make a trillion dollars. Would it be the whole neighborhood? The city? More?
If someone built block after block of $100,000 houses, ten houses to a block, ten blocks to a mile—that's a hundred blocks per square mile—how big would the project be when it reached a trillion dollars in value? It would be 10,000 square miles—that's bigger than the State of Maryland.
And how about the size of the national debt? How much land would we have to cover with $100,000 houses to equal the $7 trillion debt? Picture Missouri. The 275 miles from St. Louis to Kansas City—covered with houses. The 325 miles from the Arkansas line to the Iowa line—covered with houses. All the farms, all the lakes, all the rivers—covered with $100,000 houses. That's what 7 trillion dollars looks like.
If your annual salary or wage is $50,000 it would take you 20 million years to earn a trillion dollars.
One trillion dollars ($1,000,000,000,000) is enough money:
To buy everybody living in Los Angeles at least one Lamborghini Gallardo.
To buy 88,052, 394' custom mega yachts; enough to stretch around ¼ of the world.
To buy everyone living in Belize and Malta a Manhattan apartment.
To give one out of every two men in the United States a Men’s Presidential Rolex watch.
To buy every woman in the United States a Tiffany Diamond Starfish Pendant.
To get two Mitsubishi 73? HDTVs for every household in America.
To send everybody in America on an all-inclusive vacation to Tahiti (and some people can stay a few extra days).
$1 trillion is enough money for everyone in Buffalo, NY to buy their own 65-acre island in Panama.
A person given $1 million a year to spend would need 1 million years to blow $1 trillion.
There are about 6.8 billion people in the world, meaning that every living person would get $441 if the U.S. government's budget was divided up. If the money was split among the 300 million Americans, everyone would take home $10,000.
Counting to a trillion at a rate of one number a second (no sleeping) would take almost 32,000 years.

one of these taxes existed 100 years ago.
And our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids. What happened? Can you spell ‘politicians!’
And I still have to ‘press 1' for English.
Thank God for experts.
