I think I'd rather see how many MILES that is into the sky, than saying "28 billion rulers is 28 billion feet" as though that tells me anything interesting. FYI, it's 5,488,873 miles, or 6% of the distance to the Sun.
[citation]If you placed 28,981,249,043 rulers end to end, they would reach 28,981,249,043 feet in the sky[/citation]
Thanks, I don't know how I would get by without expert analysis such as that. I also hear that if you stack 28,981,249,043 yard sticks on top of each other, they would reach 28,981,249,043 yards into the sky.
