US debt clock runs out of digits

Nothing new. Just an interesting article on the debt clock itself. They will be adding some more zeros so it can record a quadrillion dollars of debt but this won't happen until next year. I can't even imagine what 11 trillion dollars would look like. Or even 11 trillion jelly beans for that matter.
