I posted this in another thread, but I thought, apart from the issue for which it was posted there, that it was worth its own forum. http://orlingrabbe.com/trillions.php http://www.tysknews.com/Depts/Taxes/million.htm http://pickwaynesbrain.blogspot.com/2007/10/how-much-is-trillion.html If you counted to a million by one every second, you'd get there in a little over 12 days. If you counted to a billion every second, you'd arrive in about 31 years and 8-1/2 months. And if you counted to a trillion... in 31,688 years you would be done. This number scares me.
