How much is a trillion?

I think our politicians could benefit from this book:


We got a pretty good picture of what a trillion dollars looks like. 
Imagine a trillion gold fish in a gold fish bowl. 
The bowl would need to be the size of the San Francisco Bay...


Yes, bigger than that body of water behind that pretty girl. 

Now imagine a trillion kids, like that pretty little girl above, standing on each other's shoulders. 
They would reach almost to Saturn's rings....
yes, I mean the planet, not the car. 

So...how much debt do we have now...

FOUR TIMES THAT????

Ummm.....I am not sure they get it. They really need this book!
