total more than $6 trillion

Here's a novel way of thinking about it. The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second ... if you travel for an entire year (24/7/365) at the speed of light you will have traveled about 6 trillion miles. Similarly, if you increase debt by $186,000 per second for every second in an entire year you will have increased debt by about 6 trillion dollars. WAY TO GO HUSSEIN .... you jackass !

My favorite has been if you started today and spent a million dollars A DAY going backwards, you would be at 3/4 of a trillion dollars at the birth of Jesus. You would hit 1 trillion around the battle of Thermopylae.

To get to 6 trillion dollars (again, at a million dollars a day) you have to go back to 16 thousand years ago, when cave drawings were the height of technology.
