Can this be true?....

$1 bln in 5c coins is 20 bln coins. Each 5c coin weight 3.9g. 20 bln coins would weight 78000 tonns.

According to wikipedia - "In the U.S.A., 80,000 pounds, is the maximum allowable legal gross vehicle weight without a permit" That means each track would move up to 36 tonn.

Which means this would require more than 2000 tracks to bring 1bln in coins.

Thus 30 track would in reality bring something in neighborhood of a million....

So Apple should expect 1000 more of such deliveries....

It's not true. But it's still funny.
