Is that $3,000,000,000,000 because sometimes a thousand million is a billion and sometimes a million million is a billion so using the second equivalent a trillion would be 1,000,000,000,000,000,000.
I suppose in addition to my original use for the money I'd figure out if I'd been short changed first!

I was right I'd have to work out if I'd been short changed because it is the cardinal number 10^12 (1,000,000,000,000) or (British) 10^18 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000)

Lets say it comes in $100 dollar bills and one of those weighs 1 gram so if it weighs 10 million kilograms I've got the short changed version of the value!

I think a trillion is a thousand billion, isn't it? So it would be 3,000,000,000,000. Do the British figure these things differently? Is that why the pound is worth so much more than the dollar? ;-)

I would take it in US 1$ bills and sprinkle them across the Pacific so Kazz can sashay across and have a few creme eggs while watching the sun set. Hey, bring Ray and the whole clan. Single file, please, the bouyancy of these bills is not very good. I think they are printed using real gold in the ink.
