can anyone estimate for me how much this is?

I think it's Tang's idea of a joke. Looks like about a million dollars.

Yes, Ellis is quite correct.

Whenever someone is offering someone else an obscene amount of money for whatever reason, it will always be in the form of neatly stacked and bound stacks of bills in a briefcase, or, if the amount is even larger, a suitcase.

Always.

For accuracy, the briefcase should be a Zero Halliburton brand brushed-aluminum model (oddly just the right size for ten thousand one-hundred-dollar bills), the first choice of terrorists, drug dealers, and Las Vegas whales.

A briefcase full isn't really an obscene amount these days, relatively speaking. Assuming all US$100 bills, an average sized briefcase (25" x 18" x 4") could theoretically fit about US$2,400,000.

An average attache case (18" x 12" x 4.5") is good for about US$1,000,000. That's obviously a lot of money, but not generally enough in the modern developed world to live on like a king, sufficient to fund a significant enterprise, or worth killing over. That's precisely the reason why the US treasury doesn't make any bills bigger than $100.

Notice, however, that if you fly across the Atlantic it is possible to cram in a briefcase an obscene amount of euros: using 500 € bills and assuming each bill has a thickness of 0.16 mm, a briefcase as described above can hold €6,350,000 (US$8,550,275), whereas an attaché case can hold up to €3,213,000 (US$4,326,304).

And that's more than you ever wanted to know about a suitcase full of $100 bills!!

PS I'll be ordering my Haliburton Zero on eBay later this month.

Ironically, a Halliburton Zero was given to me by SPORTSBOOK.com about 8 years ago, when I was playing them on line a lot, used to go to Costa Rica for golf and R&R, the wife been there several times..also, Superbowl in Miami , Bulls games, yada, yada

Interesting that was their choice of Players Club gifts back in the day ( when they should/would/could pay up...) Times have changed...
