The Most Interesting and Dramatic Data Visualization You’ll Ever See

Have you ever been curious how a one million stack of $100 looks like? I know I am and I always wanted to see it in real life. Sadly this is almost impossible.

Surprisingly, one million dollars doesn’t occupy so much space, you can put the bills into a bag with ease.


Now what about a hundred million dollars? Let’s compare it with our little million “brick” and with a $10.000 pack.


Curious how the U.S deficit looks like?

Comparison of $1,000,000,000,000 dollars to a standard sized American Football field and European Football field.
Say hello to the Boeing 747-400 transcontinental airliner that’s hiding on the right. This was until recently the biggest passenger plane in the world.


Want to see how the US GDP and deficit look like? You will have nightmares tonight. You will madly laugh when you’ll see a single $100 bill from now on. And then you’ll cry. You will want to move on a remote island all by yourself.

Here it is…15 Trillion Dollars:


Do you want to be even more shocked? If so, you should check out US unfunded liabilities (114.5 Trillion Dollars). That is so hilarious…you can fill up an entire city with those money. I think you can produce an earthquake with them.

If you really want to see this enormous pile of money, check out and scroll down to the last image. I’ve been warned!
