The Debt

The United States of America is in a lot of debt right now. They owe 14,389,367,763,475 at the moment of writing this. But what does that number really mean?

Let's say you make 1000 dollars a second.
You've earned the average household annual income in less than a minute.
You're a millionaire in 17 minutes.
You're a billionaire in 12 days.
You've earned enough money to pay off the debt after 456 years.
