How much is a Trillion?

To put it in perspective, one million seconds is about 12 days.
One Billion seconds ago it was 1977, and disco ruled.
One Trillion seconds ago, it was the year 29,680 BC and Europeans lived in caves.

One trillion dollar bills stacked on top of each other would stack 67,000 miles hig.....One fourth of the way to the moon!

How big is a Trillion dollar deficit?
