A Trillion Seconds
This one has been going around for a while within a number of different presentations.
Having seen it again this PM at Richard Russell's Dow Theory Letter, and lacking the energy to work up any of the other ideas I have percolating, I decided to grab it.

Very few elite mathematicians are able to comprehend the impact of TWELVE ZEROS.
Instead of DOLLARS, let us imagine SECONDS of time:
ONE MILLION -------- 1,000,000 Seconds. ------ 1.65 WEEKS
ONE BILLION -------- 1,000,000,000 Seconds. ------ 31 YEARS, 8 MONTHS, 15 DAYS
ONE TRILLION ------ 1,000,000,000,000 Seconds. ----- 31,710 YEARS !!!
