Money Perspective

Ron gets the famous pinky-to-mouth-corner no-prize for bringing us this set of illustrations that graphically demonstrates what a trillion dollars really means. It's my understanding that one of the biggest problems bank robbers have is not security, but transportation. It's all well and good to hold up an armored car, but it's often not understood they're big for more than one reason.

BTW, because I'm obsessive/compulsive like that, I did the math to see what that'd be in tonnes. Turns out it's around 11K tons with each $100 bill weighing a gram.

More credence to your bank robber point.
