How Big Is A Trillion Dollars In Singles, A Comparison

March 1, 2018


This is a video created by the folks at Animated Comparisons showing just how large a pile of a trillion dollars in ones would be. The video starts with a single buck, then moves up through the hundreds and thousands, millions and billions, and finally, a trillion. Now that is a large stack of cash. Of course you could make it 1/100th that size if you used $100 bills instead of $1's. Who wants their fortune entirely in singles anyways? Life isn't a strip club. I mean it isn't, right? Wait -- IS IT?! Two questions: where's the buffet, and am I allowed to bring a plate to the stage? Man oh man, I hope there's lo mein.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Gregory C, who informed me he knows exactly how big a five and three ones is. Haha, I bet the exact same size as the four singles I've got.

    1 million seconds is about 11.5 days, 1 trillion seconds is about 31700 years, there is no comparison.

    this video is retarded. money is just numbers in an account. and no one needs a trillion dollar in cash.

  • The_Wretched

    Good news! your get a tiny fraction of the biggest pile! Don't you feel rich and smrt?

  • GeneralDisorder

    TIL: In order to buy hypercars in singles you need to rent a car carrier for the cash.

    How about nickles?

  • Bosun Higgs

    When I told a former boss I was stepping out for supplies and asked if he needed anything, he'd always answer, "Get me a pound of fifties."

  • Doog

    Sounds like a drug reference that I don't get, but them again I don't get most drug references, Man, if I had a nickle for every time I've tried to crack into the world of drugs I'd be able to buy Lucy some Sky Diamonds, but any time I try I always bale and it goes up in smoke. Now excuse me while I head to the bathroom to powder my nose.

  • Bosun Higgs

    No drug reference. He meant "a pound of fifty dollar bills." It was such an amusing mental image that it always stuck with me.

  • Hal Rappaport

    Great Forbidden Planet pic and name!

  • TheQiwiMan

    Life CAN be a strip club, to he who never gives up on his dreams.

  • Doog

    This sounds dangerously like a Weinstein-ian mindset.

    Or at least like it could be made to seem that way if someone wanted to make a joke, though surely no one would ever do that.
