Or another way to visualize it...

Chris Martenson's online "Crash Course" in economics explains a trillion this way. First, picture a million dollars as a four-inch stack of thousand-dollar bills. A comparable billion-dollar stack is 358 feet tall. A trillion-dollar stack of thousand-dollar bills stands 67.9 miles high.

A trillion

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, nor are you here to live up to mine.

i want a few of thoes palets damn just 1 pallet ill be happy wouldnt turn down more thought......just think of all the fast toys you can buy with that

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.
