And I doubt I'll see it within the decade in Canada.

Silly Google. You can take my background image, but you won't be able to stop me from CSS hacking it back in.

I made an update to this graphic from my blog post. It now shows which presidencies the debt was accumulated under.

Another fun fact: that same string of (16 trillion) dollar bills could wrap around the entire Earth 62,265 times at the Equator.

+Steve Broome Excuse the super late reply. The point of this wasn't really to put the national debt into particularly relatable fiscal terms. My goal was to just illustrate the astounding scale of it. Not even the wealthiest men on Earth can come close to relating to the amount of money that the US Government deals with.

As we talked about on another post, I'll concede that simply naming presidents is somewhat misleading about who is actually to blame. For this post, I mainly named Bush and Obama to represent the recent/current eras (2001-2008, 2009-2012) of their presidencies. In the blog post, I excluded presidents altogether since the emphasis was simply on the size of the number 16,000,000,000,000 in terms of dollar bills.

My secondary intention was to give myself an excuse to play with really big numbers, since I enjoy absurd statistics.

If I seem less wise from now on, it's because the teeth I stored my wisdom in were taken.

Saw Ron Paul speak earlier today, and now there's a third party debate.

It's a good day to be a libertarian.
 
IVN.us is hosting the first ever, online presidential debate. In the past, candidates travelled together to debate the issues facing their states and our country. Thomas Dewey and Harold Stassen propelled the debate process forward when they moved to the radio in 1948. Television made a grand entrance into national politics in 1960 when John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon took to the stage during the Great Debates. 

In 2012, two candidates will debate online. This event will change the way that candidates discuss the issues today and in the future. Watch as two candidates debate questions submitted by you from two different parts of the country, moderated from California by IVN.us

Join us on October 18, 2012 in making history. Watch as Governor Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein take to the Internet to debate and address the issues you see facing America today.

The mission of IVN.us is to raise the level of civil discourse to a place where solutions are more persuasive than talking points, and participation is not conditioned on your party affiliation.

Apple should hire Steve Wozniak as a philosophical consultant. Perhaps he could push them in the direction of open source software, and prevent them from shooting themselves in the foot by preventing jailbreaks.

I definitely agree. That's one reason I've never bought an iPod, and used non-Apple MP3 players before getting my first iPhone.

Hopefully they will fix some of my many gripes with iTunes 11 this month. iTunes has been too bad for too long.

I can't say I agree with every part of this analysis, but +The Economist continues to be levelheaded and informative while their competitors mindlessly echo partisan talking points.

If every publication was comparably substantive, the world would be a much better place.
