I make it rain, baby! All day long.

Money! Everyone wants it… lots of it. Let’s take a look at some awesome money facts.

Fat Stacks

How much does a million dollars weigh? That would depend on the denomination of the bills you use. Since there are 490 notes in a pound, if you used \$1 bills it would weigh 2,040.8 pounds, but if you used \$100 bills it would weigh only 20.4 pounds.

How many years?

What’s the typical lifespan of money? That depends on the denomination of the note. Here are the average lifespans according to the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing (or the BEP):
\$1 bill - 22 months
\$5 bill - 16 months
\$10 bill -18 months
\$20 bill - 24 months
\$50 bill - 55 months
\$100 bill - 89 months
Bills that get worn out from everyday use are taken out of circulation and replaced. Coins usually survive in circulation for about 25 years.

How many pennies wide?

How wide is America in pennies? A mile of pennies laid out is \$844.80. By this standard, America is about \$2.5 million wide, coast to coast.

A dollar a day

If you had \$10 billion and spent \$1 every second of every day, it would take 317 years for you to go broke.

Trivia Time!

OK, trivia time. How many double folds ( forward then backward ) can U.S. bills take before it will tear? Is it 1000 double folds? 4000 double folds? Or 9000 double folds? We’ll tell you below.

Timber!

The elm tree on back of the \$20 bill represents a real tree on the White House grounds. However, the tree is no longer there because it fell down in 2006 due to rain-softened ground that couldn’t support its massive weight.

Lucky 13

There were 13 original American colonies and the number 13 figures prominently on the \$1 bill.
The number of letters/digits in 1776 (4) and its Roman Numeral equivalent MDCCLXXVI (9..

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! it’s a… no… it’s a plane.

Soaring like a bird used to be a pipe dream but not anymore. Let’s take a closer look at some awesome facts about airplanes.

May the Forces be with you.

While the Wright Brothers are credited with designing the first airplane to fly, the concept of the modern airplane was developed in 1799 by Sir George Cayley. Designer of the first successful glider to carry a human being aloft, he identified the four aerodynamic forces which act on any flying vehicle: weight, lift, drag, and thrust.

To the Moon… sort of.

All of the Boeing 747s ever made have traveled a collective 35 billion miles. That’s equivalent to 75,000 trips to the moon and back!

The Wright Brothers.

The Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur, are credited with the first successful airplane design that produced a sustained, controlled flight. While it was first, it certainly wasn’t very long. At 120 feet, the flight was shorter than the wingspan of a modern day 747 of 229 feet.

Trivia Time!

Time for some airplane trivia. How much fuel does a Boeing 747 consume per minute? 15.5 gallons. 32.5 gallons. Or 58.5 gallons. Take some time and think it over. We’ll tell you the answer below.

First Across the Pond.

Charles Lindbergh is often credited with being the first to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927 but that’s not quite correct. Before Lindbergh, many people made the trip across the Atlantic but in stages or in lighter than air dirigibles. Lindbergh’s major achievement was that he was the first person to cross the Atlantic by airplane alone, at a distance of nearly 3,600 miles (5,800 km) in 33 hours and 30 minutes. As a result of this flight, Lindbergh was the first person in history to be in Ne..
