Debt Clock

One of the highlights of any trip to the Big Apple is seeing the big "National Debt Clock" clicking away. It's one of life's gentle little reminders that we are all doomed to a life of financial chaos.

A friend of mine sent me this - an internet version of the debt clock. It also has a real-time display for such "stick your head in an oven" numbers as bailout money, the budget deficit, and medicare fraud.

Makes you want to jump off the Empire State Building.
