Oooooh. Do they have all the cool little stylized icons like the cubist soldier to represent 1 million men under arms, or the little red car-like thing to represent a hundred thousand cars, or varying piles of dollar bills to represent, well, varying amounts of money?

'Cause I think those are the cool part of any infographic. It's where USA Today always wins...
