Maybe you saw the NBC Nightly News this evening. Maybe not, no matter ... I'll paint the story for you.
Covering the Powerball drawing: Reporter standing outside (for some reason) says a dollar bill is "point oh oh 4" (that's 0.004) inches thick, and that 800 million of them stacked up would reach "8 feet less than outer space". Good grief!!!!
As if "outer space" can be delineated so precisely that you can say you're "8 feet below" outer space! Anyway, according to the figures offered, your stack is 50 miles high, which isn't 8 feet less than outer space, but more like 10 miles less by even the most lax definitions.
I'm not so sure that 250 dollar bills stacked up are only one inch thick either, but I'll accept that for now, since I don't have a micrometer handy. I think they're thicker than that.
This is getting so frakin' stupid. Why, oh why, couldn't the reporter have simply stated the stack of bills would be about 50 miles high? nuff said, quit with the B.S., particularly when you can't even get the B.S. right. Are you getting your data from YouTube comments? Were you fired from Faux Noise for stupid comments?
Jeepers, that source for info didn't come from "the Donald" did it?
