That recent great, big lottery jackpot would fund the U.S. government for…

November 29, 2012

Saw this somewhere on the internet today:

Huh. Quickly leaping to my search bar and clicking on the resulting Wikipedia entry (yes, I know), I found the number $3,803,000,000,000. That’s $3.8 trillion.

Divided by 365, that’s $10,410,958,904.11 per day.

  • $433,789,954.34 per hour.
  • $7,229,832.57 per minute.
  • $120,497.21 per second.

Oops, went too far. Go back to “per minute.” Divide the lottery jackpot – $540 million – by the amount per minute…and that’s 74.69 minutes, or just under an hour and a quarter.

Dunno if the cartoon is a little off, or I am, or my source of information is.
