Michelle Obama, in proportion to $1 Trillion

It isn't easy to represent even a minimal estimate of the amount of money which has already been committed to melting banks, even leaving aside the latest addition of $1 trillion in "quantitative easing," and the graphic below is just another try.

A dollar bill is about 6" by 2.5". A stack of 100 dollar bills is about 1" high. So $100 is about 15 cubic inches. $1 trillion is accordingly about 10 billion times 15 cubic inches, or 150,000,000,000 cubic inches. One cubic foot is 12 x 12 x 12 inches, or 1728 cubic inches. 150,000,000,000 divided by 1728 is about 86,500,000 cubic feet. This is about the same volume as an 82 storey building, 440 feet wide, and 220 feet deep. Michelle Obama is about 6 feet tall.

in proportion to Trillion

It would take a trillion rabbit pellets to equal the crappiness of that one graphic.

OMG

I followed that photo back to its source (it's such a cute bunny), and ended up in a photobucket album along which also contains the disgusting graphic that is the subject of this diary.
 The album is certainly an eclectic mix and worth a look:

Re: Michelle Obama, in proportion to $1 Trillion

The real question is how many jelly beans would fit into that graphic.

but it begs the question...

but would a trill fit into the stay puff???

by canadian gal 2009-03-21 01:38PM | 0 recs
No.

A trillion dollar bills won't fit in the "stay puff."

Judging from the background, the big white figure is only about 10 storeys tall, and maybe 50 feet deep and wide.

That's about 100 x 50 x 50 = 250,000 cubic feet.

$1 trillion occupies about 86,500,000 cubic feet, or about 346 times as much as the "stay puff."

Re: No.

Not too bad.  Only 346 marshmallow men to undo Ronald Reagan?  Are you kidding?  Best bargain of our lives.

Re: Michelle Obama, in proportion to $1 Trillion

An ordinary sheet of paper is 8.5 x 11", a stack of about 125 pages is an inch high.  The number of copies of this graph that would fit into Michelle Obama...

Actually, I think she'd really prefer a handful of jelly beans.

I'm thinking that for a Barack graph we'd better get some very precise arugula dimensions.

And your point is...?

by mistersite 2009-03-21 10:05AM | 0 recs
in proportion to

$1 Trillion Dollars:

Disenfranchised FL and MI voters....
Incendiary Sermons by Reverend Wright....
Votes needed for cloture....
Walmart Supercenter parking spaces....
Rush Limbaugh Fat Cells....
Hard Working West Virginians....
Bowlers in the Special Olympics.....

So many options, and yet you picked on Michelle O.

Picked on?

There's absolutely nothing negative about Michelle Obama in this diary.

Oh, wait...

You weren't making a serious comment.

You're just another stupid fucking clown who shits on every diary that isn't foaming with adulation for the Obamas.

How many schools can you build with $1 trillion?

Building a new school costs about $20,000 per student. There are about 50,000,000 elementary and high school students in the United States.

$1 trillion is enough money to rebuild every school in the United States, or double the size of every school that we already have.

WTF does that have to do with Michelle Obama's body shape, (edited to avoid insulting both dip and shit)?

by QTG 2009-03-21 03:01PM | 0 recs
QTG...

...thinks this is a diary about "Michelle Obama's body shape."

QTG also thinks that the radio inside his head is talking about "Michelle Obama's body shape."

But other people can't hear it.

Re: Milo Millipede

...thinks attacking the First Lady as would Rush Limbaugh is funny and informative. But it's just boorish.

There's no attack...

There's obviously no attack on Michelle Obama in this diary, and QTG is just another lying, semi-literate shit-head who only understands 2 or 3 bits of info in any given diary, and makes up the rest out of his own perverted little shit-pile of a soul.

Re: There's no attack...

They took down the diary, just when it was getting interesting.

Moderation when you least want it, and almost never when you really need it.

Re: QTG...

Milo (or can I call you Jacob?), you once said:


It's also worth remembering that not every black American is a resentful, over-privileged, hate-America freak like Michelle Obama, and it makes more sense to include black soldiers in Afghanistan in the category of "hillbillies" than to classify them by color alone and assume that they have more in common with infinitely "entitled" and soulless hustlers like the Obamas than they have in common with the hillbillies they serve beside in the mountains of Afghanistan.

I added the emphasis, but included the whole sentence as a courtesy. Here's a link to your whole Obama bashing rant:

"not much digging on my part"

Of course there wasn't much digging on your part, you shit-faced fucking clown!

I don't like or respect Michelle Obama, but there's absolutely nothing in this diary that reflects on anything about her, except her height, and if some shit-faced clown like you thinks that the simplest possible reference to her height represents a negative reflection on her "body image," it's just more of the same pathetic character assassination that made so many people who merely dislike the Obamas actually hate stupid fucking fanatics like you who shit on every diary that isn't foaming with adulation for Obama.

Just in case you missed it ...

I merely dislike the Obamas, but I actually hate the stupid fucking fanatics like you who shit on every diary that isn't foaming with adulation for Obama.

Suck my ass, you pathetic fucking clown!

Re: "not much digging on my part"

Been reading your old stuff. Like this one a lot:

In a Democratic debate, maybe Obama can afford to leave himself open for a knock-out punch that Hillary Clinton can't deliver, but if he tries the same stunt with John McCain, his candidacy will be in real trouble, and the silent prayers of all his little blanksters won't save him.

But really. You ought to read the whole thing.

Check "racism" in a dictionary...

... if you have one.

When Michelle Obama said she had never been proud of her country until Barack was nominated for Preasident, she insulted all veterans, living and dead, who risked or lost their lives to pay for her over-privileged existence.

I stand by everything I said about her, and soldiers in Iraq, and...

And if there's always another stupid jerk-off on MyDD who doesn't even know the meaning of the word "racism" and can't post anything but shit-headed insults on a political blog, it's just part of the reason that the con-man Obama was elected instead of Kucinich or Clark or some other honest person.

Re: MILO and the RUG APES

I don't need no stinking dictionary:

Planet of the Rug Apes Add to Hotlist

by Milo 'Jacob Freeze' Millipede , Fri Feb 08, 2008 at 10:08:45 PM EST
The Democratic drive to regain the White House in 2008 suffered an apparent setback yesterday when a gang of rug apes ate Clobamatron, the two-headed Democratic candidate.

But Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean quickly reassured the party faithful that absentee ballots already cast for Clobamatron are still valid.

"All we really have to do is corral those rug apes in the Oval Office until they poop out our candidate on the rug."

Editor's note: This explains the diary's previous title, Back Door to the Whitehouse.

This theme was echoed in a joint statement by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. "Even a pile of Clobamatron on the rug is better than George W. Bush."

Informed opinion about the motivation of the rug apes who ate Clobamatron was summed up by extra-terrestrial intruder Bifrix Meemgoobr. "Rug apes will swallow anything," he said, "and my species has observed similar political behavior among low-IQ humanoids on more than a hundred planets."

Editors note: Contrary to the demented sarcasm of "Jacob Freeze," Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are both very intelligent life-forms, but playing by the rules of TV politics means talking like toddler squeak-toys in some God-forsaken playpen.

Re: Check "racism" in a dictionary...

The problem with racists (most of them come from the bizarre right-wing loony-bin) is that they swear that they are not racists.  They may even believe this to be true, but in reality they are some of the worst racist slime that walks this Earth.  

Must suck to be a right-wing racist these days, Millipede, as you and your ilk are on the road to extinction.  Thank goodness.

BTW, READ what Michelle Obama really said instead of sheepishly regurgitating the excrement that comes out of Rush Limbaugh's mouth.  For once in your life think for yourself instead of taking the easy route and thinking through Limbaugh's drug addled mind.
