One hundred million dollars is just palletable

Page Tutor has a really cool page showing what a trillion US dollars looks like.

So, not to steal their thunder too much, but here is what they reckon one meelion dollars looks like in US currency:

onemillion

Kind of a let down really. Let’s boost that to a far more impressive one hundred million dollars:

onehundredmillion

OK, now we’re talking. Money is pretty compact, no?

Now for the money shot: one trillion dollars:

Click the image to see the whole glorious thing uncropped, and take note of the man in the bottom left to get an idea of the scale. You may also notice that those pallets (now you get it…) are actually double-stacked.

So, in conclusion… uh…. a trillion dollars is a lot of money.

I hope you all learnt something.
