I made a more easy to read diagram for [insert your adjective here] people.

That looks more like $300,000 to me than $1,000,000. Each bill is 6" long, and at 1/2" per 10,000 in depth, 100 packets stacked in a 2 by 50 pattern would have a width of 12" and a depth of 25". The average man's size ten shoe is just around 12", which would make the perspective on the width correct. The depth looks quite short of 25".

Still the comparison is boggling. Who gave Obama a flippin trillion dollars again?

I can't even fathom this amount. So when trying to fathom the full 4.5 Trillion all this nonsense will cost, my brain bursts out of my skull.
