    "How much does $1 million 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."


    Ans: Hell no. If it were in 100's, yes.

    that's why I stipulated one dollar bills in the original problem. I'm sure you caught that right away though and just gave the answer you gave to be thorough, being the mythbuster you are

    If I had all those bills, I would stuff it in my bed, and make sweet love to it.

    If I had a million dollars,
    I'd buy a you a green dress,
    But not a real green dress, that's cruel.

    If I had a million dollars,
    I'd buy you furniture for your house,
    Maybe a nice Chesterfield, or an Ottoman!

    I'd hire people to write me better lyrics.

    The lyrics are funny .... especially the last line.

    A million dollars would put you in the top 1% asset-wise. If you decided to live on it while making sure the principal increased with inflation, you'd get around 50,000 a year.

    If I had a million dollars
    I'd build a tree fort in our yard
    If I had million dollars
    You could help, it wouldn't be that hard
    If I had million dollars
    Maybe we could put like a little tiny fridge in there somewhere
    You know, we could just go up there and hang out
    Like open the fridge and stuff
    There would already be laid out foods for us
    Like little pre-wrapped sausages and things

    They have pre-wrapped sausages but they don't have pre-wrapped bacon
    Well, can you blame 'em
    Uh, yeah

    i'd say let me try, and just grab whatever i could and run away from you really fast.
