I was at the airport one time and a UPS guy right in front of me put a shrink wrapped cube of $100 bills in the metal detector. It was about 8 ft^3, or 2ft x 2ft x 2ft, like the size of a 24" TV ok? Well I nearly shat. In fact I did, just a tiny little nugget of woah in my briefs.
Anyhow dude put it down on a hand truck and went into some special door. It was fucking baffling, I figured they've got better ways of doing this, fax? But if the US mail was good enough for Harry Winston's Hope Diamond I guess UPS works fine for a measly stack of benjamins. At the time I could never guess the value, but based on the pictures below I'd say about $10 million.
Anyway here's a really neat post hijacked from this place
$1 Benjamin = 100
$10,000 = 10 Thousand
$1,000,000 = 1 Million
$100,000,000 = 100 Million
$1,000,000,000 = 1 Billion
wait for it...
$1,000,000,000,000 = 1 Trillion:
TARP is really big.
