Mark D over at By My Troth has attempted to put the stimulus package into terms we can relate to.

– Let’s say you convert the cost of the stimulus package to pennies. You then wrap those pennies and lay them end-to-end. Your line of penny wrappers would go around the Earth 2,494 times.

– That string of penny wrappers would reach from the earth to the moon and back 130 times.

– If you laid those penny wrappers in a straight line, it would take LIGHT a bit over five and a half minutes to travel that far.
