What's the difference between a million, a billion and a trillion?

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

The above is a nonillio, or about how much money I usually carry around.

Its a joke, folks. Drop the zeros and you pretty much have what I usually carry around.

Just a snippet. There's much more.
A million dollars ago was five (5) seconds ago at the U.S. Treasury.
A billion dollars ago was late yesterday afternoon at the U.S. Treasury.

Via Jonco (who else?).
