My favorite morning show hosts posted a link to show what one trillion dollars looks like. Here it is. Basically, the stack of $100 bills is 6 foot high and two football fields. In the book, Made To Stick, the Heath brothers make the point that numbers should always be relative to make a lasting impression on the listener's mind. For more tips on delivering information, see presentationzen.com. I also believe that the use of cartoons reinforces learning. An excellent example of how an author used the principles of Made to Stick and delivered a message, see Daniel H. Pink's book, Johnny Bunko.
