So after two whole days of intense debate, the G20 leaders have got everything sorted out.British PM Gordon Brown is getting all us ‘rich’ countries to pitch in and plug the cash hole in our sinking ship of a planet.
Goodbye global recession, we’ll see your misery and raise you by… One Trillion Dollars!
I’m not a financial guy, I don’t understand what they’re doing exactly, all I see is that everyone is smiling in photos and they all seem to think this plan is great. May as well be a gazillion dollars as far as I’m concerned so I wanted to find out what a trillion dollars could actually buy.
Turns out it could:
– Buy a Lamborghini Gallardo for every person in Los Angeles
– Send all of America on Vacation to Tahiti
– Buy four copies of the Office on DVD for every person on Earth
and… most importantly, buy enough cigarettes for me to have smoked a pack a day since fish evolved into amphibians and came onto land.
Take that, pesky lungs!
(I worked that last one out myself so it may be flawed. Others via RINF.com )
