Seriously? Are the Caymen Islands big enough?
I cannot even imagine a trillion dollars (let alone a million dollars).

I have enough problems just hanging on to my 12k a year from those who want a piece of that! Or those who BEGRUDGE me that SS Disability money.

Repeat after me, 'Not from my cold dead hands'...I'll never relinquish it! Never!!

Also seems that 32 trillion dollars would solve all the problems in the world!! (I may be wrong about that. I just don't really know.)

Who wouldn't want to be truly known as the SAVIOR of the world??? Isn't that what the all most powerful 1% are striving for?

Then Do IT! Be that for christ sakes!!! Spend your money! Do it before your paper rots into the dump heap! (or is the paper the money is printed on not biodegradable?) Or perhaps THEY have realized they wasted Too Much Money on too much STUPID stuff already..

I'll bet some of the hoarders have really forgotten about it.

(Even poor little old me have stuff in storage (9' x 12') that I haven't seen in a couple of years and I know if I haven't used any of it, I know I don't need it anymore so why do I keep paying ninety dollars a month?? I constantly fight with myself about that. Seriously I do. )

Or they are like me and just don't know what to do with it??

Super-Rich Hold Up To $32 Trillion In Offshore Havens:

LONDON, July 22 (Reuters) - Rich individuals and their families have as much as $32 trillion of hidden financial assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenues, according to research published on Sunday.

The study estimating the extent of global private financial wealth held in offshore accounts - excluding non-financial assets such as real estate, gold, yachts and racehorses - puts the sum at between $21 and $32 trillion.

I really do want to know how much physical space 32 trillion dollars would actually take up.

I have read that the billions of human beings on the planet today could all fit in Texas so I'm sure someone could answer my question about all the unspent money space.

See, in my mind, if we could figure out the actual size of the physical storage space for 32 trillion dollars, we might then figure out the exact location and, like go there and get it.

The Caymen Islands looks too little to me. 'Cause in my mind the islands would have been swamped by Pirate Troops by now or, for surely, Global Warming will eventually swallow it all up and it is too risky to keep it there, for real.

I don't even know how many zeros are in a trillion dollars.
(A Zero being the 'key clue' to me..;)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
