Ever Wondered What The U.S. Debt Looked Like in Cash?

Have you ever seen a $100 bill? Sure you have.


Ever seen a wad of them totaling $10,000. Perhaps you have...


What about U.S. debt amount, 15 trillion dollars? Ever seen that?
To give you an idea of how much money the United States' National Debt is, let us break it down for you:

Below is $1 million in cash ($1,000,000): On a global average, it takes 92 years of work to total this much money. Not the heaping piles of cash we all expected like in the movies, huh?


Below is $1 billion dollars ($1,000,000,000): What can you get for a billion dollars? You could buy a really big submarine from Germany ( http://matzav.com/israel-buys-new-dolphin-submarine-for-1-billion ) . Or the world's most valuable athlete, New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez, could give you an idea... to total $1 billion with his world record salary, he would have to play over 16 more years of baseball, every...single...day... (That's 5,890 games in a row...look out Cal Ripken, Jr.!)


Below is $1 trillion in cash ($1,000,000,000,000): In 2010, the US government had a 1.7 trillion deficit and this image shows the volume of cash the government borrowed in 2010, alone, to run itself. 




Fun fact: if you spent $1 million a day since the birth of Jesus Christ, you would have not spent this much money by now. Rather your total would be around $700 billion which is actually the amount the banks received during the bailout.


Below is $15 trillion in cash ($15,000,000,000,000) – Unless the U.S. government fixes our budget, the national debt will surpass 15 trillion by Christmas of this year. That is 20% of the entire world's combined GDP and in 2011 the National Debt will exceed 100% of our GDP, and start going into the 100%+ debt-to-GDP ratio that has countries like Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Italy, and Spain (Euro PIIGS) (
http://www.wealthwire.com/news/economy/1459 )are dealing with... bankrupcy.




What to expect for our future? Let's show you...


Below is 114.5 trillion dollars ($114,500,000,000,000): This is the U.S. unfunded liabilities. This is calculated on current tax and funding inputs, and future demographic shifts in the U.S. population. This is the amount of money the U.S. government knows it does not have to fully fund the Medicare, Medicare Prescription Drug Program, Social Security, Military, and civil servant pensions. It is the money the United States of America knows it will not have to pay all its bills. (Our stacks of money are taller than what used to be two of the tallest towers in the world, the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center Twin Towers.)


Let us not forget that as US citizens, we owe this much as well. We are all in this one together, unfortunately, with each of us currently owing $46,137.7 !

Largest manmade name in island - "Hamad"

Forget Banksy, 63-year-old billionaire sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan has gone big. Visible from space big. Scrawled on his private island Al Futaisi in Abu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates, HAMAD measures 1,000 meters (0.6 miles) in height and 3.2 KM (2 miles) in width.


The letters are dug so deep that they form an artificial waterway when filled with seawater. As a member of the ruling family of the oil-rich nation, Hamad is used to living it large. He built a pyramid to house 200 of his personal cars. He also built the worlds largest truck, large enough to build four bedrooms in the cabin. Oh yes, and he has a motor home shaped like the Earth, exactly one-millionth the size of the Earth.


Needless to say, Hamad didnt dig this latest extravagance by himself with a bucket and spade. He had some help from a team of his workmen who took weeks to complete the endeavor. Theres no word on how much it cost to dig.


You can see HAMAD yourself by typing the coordinates 24.3442, 54.3255 into Google Earth or Google Maps.


Alongside his lavish displays of wealth he has become a well-known philanthropist in medicine and supplied a complete kidney stone operating theatre to a public hospital in Morocco where he continues to fund its staff.

Live Sculptures of Rambles

Rambles is a pedestrian street of Barcelona. Along the whole street you may meet weird people frozen in various poses. In some moment it seems that nothing can make them move. However if you throw a coin into a tin can the sculpture immidiately revives and starts reacting to your presence.


Sometimes it's very interesting to watch an ordinary life of street actors. Here are "burnt devils" drinking coffee on a trash can. And there is a body staying at the public while the head has left for something aside... But when watching live sculptures remember about pickpockets for whom it is a working place while you have fun...
