“Can anyone tell me how much a Trillion dollars is Please”?
Well the question came back with the answer put in a way that really puts things in perspective!
I owe you some money!
So I say to you “I will pay you what I owe you in 1 million seconds “
And when you calculate that out 1 million seconds works out to 11.5 days! OK you say “I can live with that!”
Sorry – I say- ” I meant to say I will pay you in 1 billion seconds – you work that out and it’s 31 years” – Now we have a problem!
But wait – I say “Sorry did I say 1 Billion I actually meant 1 Trillion seconds”!
When you work out what 1 Trillion seconds is – you realize that I plan to pay you in 31,688 YEARS
The USA is now $18 Trillion Dollars in Debt – I don’t think any of us plan to be around long enough to see that paid off!
The next question I have now asked is – “Can someone please tell me Who the USA owes $18 Trillion dollars too”??????
