Re: What would you do with 3 Trillion dollars? by mrsthing on 9 October 2008 2:48am
 
Have you got any IDEA how much three trillion dollars is? The richest person on earth has only about 2% of it! You could literally change the world with three trillion dollars. You wouldn't have to support charities, you could BE all of them!

I'd take it all in $1 bills. Based on a paper thickness of .2 mm, this would be a pile of bills 600 km high. That's about 373 American miles. I might have to take it in several stacks.

Is that greenbacks we're talking about? If they were loonies (the Canadian $1 dollar coin), the stack would be about 6000 km high and weigh a bit more than that of dollar bills.

We all forgot to say that we'd fund the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering, and the UK "transport" charities, and Amnesty and Oxfam, and whatever else would force MP to feel that he has to thank us in person.

I'd burn it and keep $1M while I thought about how to spend it.

If I thought for long enough I would just about have it all spent before I died.
