Google Stock splits 2-for-1 to holders glee

Google's big announcement during its first quarter investors call included no less than a stock split which gave stock holders 1 new stock per each stock they already owned, these stocks being non-voting stocks. As Larry Page reminded investors today, Google was once a privately owned startup turned large public company in a relatively short time, this a lifetime pride of both Page and Serge, the two main founders of the network - this change hopefully being the next bit step in the evolution of its publicity.

Consider that $1 billion in $100 bills would weigh approximately 22,000 pounds assuming each bill weighs 1 g according to Dailykos. If you multiply that by 98 it gets us roughly 2,156,000 pounds for the $98 billion in cash Apple has sitting in the bank. I'd say that's plenty cash to fill a swimming pool Scrooge style.
