Big Oil

Exxon's vile (record-setting) profits last year:

$ 36,100,000,000.00

That's almost $300,000 per minute of 40-hr-a-week work, all year long, no time off. And in the last quarter, when they really raked it in (post-Katrina), the $10,700,000,000 they profited (this is profit, not gross revenue, folks) comes to $5716 a second.

That's, like, the entire annual payroll of MR in, what, 8 or 9 minutes?

I'm just trying to get some sense of the big dollar signs we're talkin' here.
