I actually like this question. I'm going to time how long it takes me to count from 999,999,999,991 to 1,000,000,000,000. It took about 38 sec.

Now I'll subtract 100,000,000,000 from 1,000,000,000,000 = 900,000,000,000

If it took me 38 seconds to count 10 numbers, it will take me 9E11*38s/10 to count from 100,000,000,000 to one trillion = 3.42E12s

Now I'll do the same above for 99,999,999,991 to 100,000,000,000: 30 sec

So it would take me 9E10*30/10 to count the above interval = 2.7E11s

As you keep doing this method for lower and lower orders of magnitude the time becomes negligible, so I'm just going to add the first two numbers together.

3.42E12+2.7E11= 3.69E12

So it'll roughly take you 3,690,000,000,000 sec = 61,500,000,000 min = 1,025,000,000 hours = 42,700,000 days = 117,000 years.

Better start now!

EDIT!

Wow, I read the question wrong. Well, now you know how long it takes to count to 1 trillion, I don't feel like going up to 13 trillion!

Well, lets see it take 16 minutes to count to a thousand 31 billion years to count to a quintillion and very and probably and get ready 31 trillion years at least

3andhalf minutes

Do you think it might depend on how fast you count huh do ya ? If you count one every second and never stop, it would take almost 146 years.

To count one billion objects, it would take you however long it takes to count one object times one billion. It does not matter how much mass the object has, so your statement of mass is meaningless.

It would take a million seconds = 16666.667 minutes = 277.778 hours = 11.57 days approx. This assumes (a) that you can count 1 per second which may not be realistic for large numbers and (b) that you can count for that length of time without stopping.

Naturally, it depends on how fast you count. If you count 10 every second and you don't take any breaks, then you hit 1 trillion during the 328th day of the 3,168th year.

If you counted 1 number every second without ever stopping, it would take you 507,020 years to reach 16 trillion.

It would take 80,000 years.
