That second picture is TOTALLY WRONG!!!! I know personally exactly what a million in 100's looks like and its WAY more than that. That little pile at the guy`s feet looks more like a `brick`, which is 1,000 one hundred dollar bills. You need 10 of those bricks to make a million dollars. To give you a size reference, you could put $1,000,000 in hundreds in a drawer of a side-board or china cabinet. THAT`s how much room it takes. These people should ask someone that actually deals with these amounts. DUH.

For the person who asked how much gold this could buy (I'm using American Measurement, not Metric. Sorry.):
Gold: Around 1000 USD an ounce at its peak. YOu could buy 1 billion ounces of gold. Divide that by 16 and you get 62,500,000 lbs. of gold. Divide that by 2000 and you get 31,250 TONS OF GOLD. That much gold doesn`t even exist on Earth, unless we dug up the molten metal at the Earth`s core or something.
