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.

Well in the movie The Dark Knight the Joker burned what appeared to be a 1/2 a trillion dollars.

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.

I literally drooled a little gazing upon this money. . . ugh, can't I just have a double stacked pallet? Pweese?

gcamaro32 - I bow down to you my friend. Best pic - ever.

SilverThread:

Actually the picture IS right... remember that $1 billion is equal to *ten* pallets, not one

There is 100 pallets (50 double stacked)in each row
10 pallets = $1 billion; so
100 pallets = $10 billion
so each row has $10 billion

1 trillion (12 zeros) / 10 billion (10 zeros) = 100

so you need 100 rows of $10 billion to make $1 trillion. And the picture shows that (I assume, I haven't counted the rows!)

"It's just paper."

It isn't. The paper is just paper. The ink is just ink. Neither matters, a fact which you could quickly verify by printing a few thousand dollar bills of your own and trying to spend them.

In modern times, money is just a promise.

Seriously - it's all a bunch of IOUs that people agree to accept. That's why the current economic problem could occur - enough people suddenly decided that the largely fake basis for the IOUs wasn't worth as much as before. Our entire economies are based on collective pretence.

In the UK, notes (bills to you) are even explicitly labelled as a promise, on the note. "I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of <insert value> pounds". All the rest of the note is merely a collection of ways to make it harder to fake.

So it isn't paper. Paper is just a convenient thing to write the IOUs on.

lloyd525:
if anyone got an actual picture of $1 trillon in a room, then i'm pretty sure they either work for the government or they just spent a decade successfully robbing banks and casinos and never spent any of the cash.

in the old days, the Reserve minted bills up to $100,000 for use in large government transactions. nowadays, they can do it all electronically and save the hassle.

I would sooooooooooo settle for $1,000,000. I'd even carry it home in my rucksack.
