Is the Economic Crisis bigger than the Universe?

Everyone know the economic crisis visited upon us by those greedy wanker bankers is huge. But, really, how big is it in relation to the scale of the universe? We all know that the universe has extremely small values as well as extremely large values. But one thing in common is that these values are extreme - lots of zeroes. Think Pearl Harbour, then multiply those zeroes by a gazillion. Hang on anything into zero is still zero, but you get my drift.

Government's casually talk in the trillions of dollars for bail-out packages. Just how much is tens of trillions of dollars in the grand scheme of the universe?

Exteme ValuesScale
The age of our universe - approx 15 billion years old10,000,000,000
Number of stars in our galaxy (Milky Way)100,000,000,000
The length of a light year1,000,000,000,000
Bail out package- talking trillions of dollars10,000,000,000,000
Total number of living cells in a human body100,000,000,000,000
The radius of an electron1/1,000,000,000,000,000
Number of stars in our universe1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
Plancks constant, probably the samllest number in quantum mechanics1/1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

Not bad eh? We should first take off our hats to those wanker bankers before we take a couple of baseball bats to them.
