This reminds me of these lines from the first Star Wars movie:

Luke Skywalker: She's rich.
Han Solo: [interested] Rich?
Luke Skywalker: Rich, powerful. Listen, if you were to rescue her, the reward would be...
Han Solo: What?
Luke Skywalker: Well, more wealth than you can imagine!
Han Solo: I don't know, I can imagine quite a bit.

dont really like their facts/comparisons, i like to think of it as:

\$700,000,000,000 = 80 * (365 * 23,972,602)

if you had \$700 billion dollars, you could spend ~\$24 million dollars a day for the next 80 years.

I'd have trouble spending \$24 million in my entire life, never mind in one day.

"Stacking dollar coins would produce a pile 435,000 miles high, well beyond the distance to the Moon. And still no one would want them."
...

"Federal expenditures to fight the entire World War II and run the rest of the country, adjusted to the 2000 dollars, were only \$1.2 trillion."

"700 billion is just 1 billion more that 699 billion my dear..."

Who'll be the first to give proper credit for this quote?

Unfortunetly, no company is going to design this light, because I'd never need to buy another one from them again.

24. ## Re: How much is 700 billion?

If we have to ask, we can't afford it.

25. ## Re: How much is 700 billion?

I wish they had picked "1 Trillion" (which is surely more likely). It rolls off the tongue easier, while being equally preposterous.
