Trillion

I did some thinking about what 1 trillion is. How can we grasp the size of this number. I took my calculator and started doing some lookups in Wikipedia. This is what I came up with to get a grasp on the number "1 trillion". I thought I share it with you.

Hi MP and welcome,

Chris does give an example of a stack of thousand dollar bills in the Crash Course but I loved your examples as well, really astonishing!
