Apparently A Billion Is A LOT More Than A Million
I know it sounds obvious, but hear me out. This video has gone viral and really does a good job showing you how much a BILLION really is. And, it's a lot. Like, a lot a lot.
So, a grain of rice represents 100,000. Call it what you want. A hundred thousand dollars, a hundred thousand people, a hundred thousand tacos, whatever is easiest for you.
10 grains of rice makes a million.
It takes 10,000 grains of rice to get to a BILLION. This is insane!
So now I'm picturing cash, which is a lot bigger than rice, obviously. I've got a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in Meridian. This house could not fit a billion dollars in cash. Also, if I had a billion dollars in cash, I'd probably go and get a bigger house.
