That's a clever list.

You could also wage 700 days of war/reconstruction in Iraq.

Surely you could get most of Al Qaeda to throw down their weapons and become goat herders.

You could probably rebuild all of New Orleans... 50 times.
You could probably rebuild Galveston and TX gulf coast about 50 times too.

You could support PBS for at least a generation.
