My friends in finance tell me that the number is actually a lot higher.

Denominated in $1 bills, the $1.2 trillion would fill 539 Olympic-size swimming pools.


Who actually sits down and calculates shit like that? :aiyo:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Don't be a cheap cunt. - Deuce Dropper

Not me. Put all my money together and it wouldn't even fill a kiddie pool. That's one of the reasons why this kind of stuff pisses me off.
