Here's Everything Apple Could Buy With the Billions They Just Made

We know that Apple just had its biggest quarter in history. We know that they made an insane $46.33 billion in revenue. But do we really know how much money $46.33 billion is? It's hard to visualize, so this presentation and facts may help:

• 2,204 Mitt Romney's in 2011
• the value of 72,220 bars of gold.
• the entire value of Apple in 2004.
• the value of all NFL Franchises combined.
• the entire valuation of Ford.
• the value of 20% of Google's outstanding shares.
• the cost of forty-six billion, thirty-three million McChickens without tax.
• the entire yearly defense budget of the U.K.
• over 160 times the cost of the Louisiana Purchase (in 2011 dollars)
• 8 times the GDP of Somalia.
• US revenue from income tax of the Western United States.
• enough to buy Mark Zuckerberg 6,000 more houses.
• winning $125M lotto jackpot, everyday, for the entire year!
• 23,165 times more than Chuck Norris makes in one year
• enough to put one tenth of US high school seniors through college.
• enough to give 2 Apple scented candles to everyone. On the planet.
• the combined annual income of every resident of Rhode Island, twice.
• enough to give each Apple employee 49 new Honda Civics


Of course revenue isn't net income. If you want to be a stickler about it Apple has $97 billion in cash and securities lying around—come on, go ahead and double everything on this list.
