What $700,000,000,000.00 Smackers Will Buy You

As we are prone to do whenever exorbitant price tags for resorts are floated around, I couldn't help but think : "shit from a fiddle, the $700,000,000,000 U.S. Government bailout of the financial industry sure is a lot of cashish, I wonder what that would buy you in equivalent Vegas stuff?"

Sure, we could calculate the number of hands of $5 blackjack you could play (140,000,000,000) and how long it would take you to play em all if you lost every single one in a row and didn't split, double down or surrender (266,185.62 years)... but we thought we might as well just get to the real meat n' taters here...

How many CityCenter's (@$9,200,000,000/ea) could one build with seven hundred billion dollars?

The answer. Graphically.

Fed Bailout City Centers

You lost me after "shit from a fiddle." I got to thinking about how cool would be farts from a banjo.
