I always wonder what certain amounts of money look like. After "Brewster's Millions," that's usually the image that come to mind when I think of a lot of money, but that was $30 million. I wonder what $1 million looks like?

Another way of putting that is "more money than I will ever see in one sitting my entire life." But for Stephenson, it's likely to become pocket change this summer.

I do like how in the photo it looks like he's answering a phone made of money. 

"Yes, hello? Being rich? Lance here. See you soon."
