I once saw a poster in a classroom that simply consisted of fairly small dots on a page. At first glance it looked unimpressive - there were just thousands of these little greyish smudges. But looking closer, one saw that the dots were actually eachcomprised of a 10x10 array of miniscule black points, of which there were in total a million. Which was the point, of course. Enough for everyone in my city to have a couple each. A little googling will find you one of these posters or an online substitute. A million people holding hands in a line might stretch as far as 1600km. or 1000 miles. That would take you from England to Finland, if you had enough boats for them to stand on. One million people stood on each other, meanwhile, could tower almost as far as this upward into the sky. A million people standing together, without being too squashed, would take up roughly a third of a square mile (almost a square km). The total floor space of the Pentagon building in all its vastness could not accomodate them. If one million people were, very inadvisably, packed into a large cubic box, it would need to be more than 40m. (44 yards) down each side. This is equivalent to 25 times the volume of an Olympic swimming pool. One million seconds are equivalent to over 111/2 days. A period of one million years is getting on for 200 times the duration of recorded human history. One million UK pounds represents a lifetime's total income for an average person in a wealthier country. One million earths almost match the volume of the sun.
