Thanks to The Presurfer, we’ve been pointed in the direction of a great piece of interweb that shows us just how much cash goes up to make a trillion dollars.

Now here’s the same man standing next to a trillion dollars. That’s a thousand billion, or if you’d prefer, a million million. Almost double that and you’ve got the American annual federal deficit for 2009. Yum yum eh readers?
