How do you loose 100 billion of anything?

Don’t ask me. I’m pretty sure I’ve never owned 100 billion of anything anyone would be likely to count, let alone lost them. Our government lately seems pretty good at loosing billions of things a year. But a single company loosing 100 billion U.S. dollars? In one year? I estimate that I made about .0000003% of what AOL Time Warner lost in one year. The displacement of my perspective could be measured on the Richter Scale.
