How much is a Trillion Dollars?

“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!

Example

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”??????

    And for those who want the quick clue: *whisper* It’s in the same place Santa keeps his presents.

    And make sure you don’t say the answer out loud; you may upset some kids and burst the delusional bubble some big kids reside in 😉

  • Now that is the Question and if the answer is half to the rest of the world and half to yourself. What Happens if you can’t pay yourself back?

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
