Apple's Cash Reserves Would Fill 50 Olympic Swimming Pools With Dollar Bills, Y'all

Just one little note about Apple's current financial position: They've got $110 billion in cash reserves. How much is that? They could fill 50 (FIFTY!) Olympic-sized swimming pools with dollar bills. Here, let Reuters show you how big one of those is:

Can't you just see Tim Cook breaststroking through cashmoney? I can.

If you're curious about the calculation, it's actually pretty simple. A dollar bill (according to Wolfram Alpha) has a volume of 0.06943 cubic inches. An Olympic-sized swimming pool has a volume of 152,064,000 cubic inches. Divide the pool by the money and you come up with 2,190,177,157 bills needed to fill a swimming pool. Take Apple's cash position -- roughly $110 billion -- and divide by that number of bills and voila, you get 50.22 pools.
