For the winner -

Stan guessed $2,027,520.00 in a stack of $1 bills, 1 mile in length. $ 14,734,883 would be the figure - considering that US currency (all bill denominations) are .0043 inches in thickness, and a mile at 5,280 feet. If they were $20 bills, it would add up to $ 294,697,674. Stack me up some bills, baby!
Regardless, prize will follow.

4 opinionated prattle:

hey you said in that last post "one mile LONG" not tall...whats with that? Dad's answer was tall not "Long". but then again you asked stacked...was this a trick question?

Stan said...

I got into the site, Yea!!!! It was a trick question Heidi, he did say "stacked" but he could have had thoughts about you, the dirty old man! To be safe, I answered both "long" and "stacked", however, in my calculations, the caliper that I was using showed that the thickness of the bill was .0032 inches, which would equate to $32.00 to the inch. His "sources" said the bill was .0043 inches thick or $43.00 to the inch. But, we all know that men have a tendency to exagerate length in inches - at least I used a caliper!

Took a stroll through your photo bucket. Nice work! See, i do click on "links"

Stan - we seem to come up with different figures for the worth and dimension of currency. That's another sign of our accuracy of governing in America seeing that both sources - differing - come from the US Treasury Dept. Did you come across all of my blackmail photos in photobucket?

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
