Here's one for ya -- not a link -- but this was just told to me three days ago: "Bob told me that you probably had a games deficiency, but you might be undiagnosed." Well, the DSM-V is due out so I'll have to look through that gem and see if there's a clear definition of it and if I fit the criteria for such a diagnosis. (If it's missing from "V" it's sure to be found in the first or second supplement.) LMFAO!!! (Oh, fuck shit no! This could be seen by the wrong eyes and grant money could be awarded for lengthy studies to be carried out to define such a psychopathic condition!)

Here's one really everybody ought to see about the history of science. Coolest guy to talk about it I could imagine, Kary Mullis, inventor of PCR (polymerase chain reaction) 1993 -- suspiciously, five-year delayed against the terms of Nobel's legal requirements -- Nobel Prize recipient. He's a lot of fun too! (If scientists actually have groupies I guess I must be a "Mullis groupie"! LOL!)

What does one TRILLION dollars look like?

All this talk about "stimulus packages" and "bailouts"...

A billion dollars...

A hundred billion dollars...

Eight hundred billion dollars...

One TRILLION dollars...

What does that look like? I mean, these various numbers are tossed around like so many doggie treats, so I thought I'd take Google Sketchup out for a test drive and try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like.

We'll start with a $100 dollar bill. Currently the largest U.S. denomination in general circulation. Most everyone has seen them, slighty fewer have owned them. Guaranteed to make friends wherever they go.

$100

Image

A packet of one hundred $100 bills is less than 1/2" thick and contains $10,000. Fits in your pocket easily and is more than enough for week or two of shamefully decadent fun.

$10,000

Image

Believe it or not, this next little pile is $1 million dollars (100 packets of $10,000). You could stuff that into a grocery bag and walk around with it.

$1,000,000 (one million dollars)

Image

While a measly $1 million looked a little unimpressive, $100 million is a little more respectable. It fits neatly on a standard pallet...

$100,000,000 (one hundred million dollars)

Image

And $1 BILLION dollars... now we're really getting somewhere...

$1,000,000,000 (one billion dollars)

Image

Next we'll look at ONE TRILLION dollars. This is that number we've been hearing so much about. What is a trillion dollars? Well, it's a million million. It's a thousand billion. It's a one followed by 12 zeros.

You ready for this?

It's pretty surprising.

Go ahead...

Scroll down...

Ladies and gentlemen... I give you $1 trillion dollars...

$1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion dollars)

Image

Notice those pallets are double stacked.
...and remember those are $100 bills.

So the next time you hear someone toss around the phrase "trillion dollars"... that's what they're talking about.

A very underrated topic if someone'd ask me. How many webpages are there anyway? good one..

Here the original spelling imp from FireFox and everywhere ones attempts to write in a FF-Brouwser window it is ... cussing like a sparrow 8)

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/browse/type:3


For fans of the internet the StumbleUpon-Site, fascinating pages suggested by other users. There is a Hobby-Humour register
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/138


But now what I initially wanted to start with, scilicet telling interested pilots and basis-station crew that the shuttle's gonna lift off for the last but fifth time early Sunday morning, extra mention of the fact that it will be the last nocturnal launch, weather and all permitting. Where we get to the exciting aspects of the most complex, flying gadget (the LHC is worth a further topic) the two booster eg are each stacked up with 5ooo tons of blackpowder, once initialised to go they cannot be stopped and have to continue till burn-out. I like harking to the flight data, sometimes not trusting what the guide is rambling about. Follow the expertise on Nasa-TV

so, before becoming too fidgety, here all the names methinks of Orion
http://www.space.com/spacewatch/orion-c ... 00203.html

..that there is no other bright sun in the vivinity of Polaris is rather astonishing, isn't it? almost too easy for sea-faring and lost people. There are more most stunning facts concerning our Earth... very unique.

Wow, I was thinking "what a craftsmen" and "he's probably totally anal" at the same time.

That's interesting.

Now... what does 6 TRILLION dollars look like? :mrgreen:

"In all of history, only 161,000 tons of gold have been mined, barely enough to fill two Olympic-size swimming pools." This can be represented by a cube with an edge length of about 20.28 meters.
- Wikipedia article on Gold

161 000 tons makes 161 000 000 kg.
The gold price per Kilo as of March 2nd 2010 is $36 512.
161 000 000 kg * $36 512 = $5 878 432 000 000

Consequently 6 TRILLION dollars is almost the price of all the gold mined by the humanity.
And it looks like two Olympic-size swimming pools filled with gold.

I'm not an economist, but the value of money had long out-stripped the total value of gold. I wonder when that point was.
