Cool... did you know there are "only" 200 billion stars in our galaxy? So a trillion bucks is a five-dollar note for each one of them....

So to get an idea of what 1 trillion pounds looks like, because we only go up to £50 notes, does that mean that in the last picture the pallets would have to be stacked 4 high to equate to 1 trillion quid. OMFG !! Now from somewhere I have heard the figure 2.3 trillion quid. That would stack the pallets 9 high. Fuck me I think I'm going to faint.

That's great. 10 to the power of 12 is easy to write, hard to visualise on a maco scale. I'd be quite happy with a million stashed in my hold all mind you.
