I saw a comment about a pile of a billion (or was it a trillion?) dollars stretching to the moon and back. This pic helps visualise a pile of money. Well done Huffington Post. Makes a point. (Although, come to think of it, I’ve seen photos of even bigger piles of cash in reportage of a drug dealer’s house raided in Mexico.)

A picture is worth a thousand words. What if it's a picture of $100 bills? (click to enlarge)
