Did you know that one trillion one dollar bills stacked up would be 67,866 miles high? The space station orbit is about 215 miles high.

How many does it take to stack 1 inch high? How high would that one inch be after adding the weight of a trillion more on top of them? I need more info to do the math.

I had that money all stacked up like that. The reason I mentioned the ISS is because it ran into my stack and knocked it out of whack. Most of it burned up on re-entry and the wind blew the rest of it all over the place.

So if you see any dollar bills laying around they are mine. Please send them to me.
