What is one hundred thousand?

I was trying to get a grasp of One Hundred Thousand. I've been reading that that is the minimum for the number killed from the Tsunami. It's a pretty hard thing to grasp, but I'll give it a try. Sun Devil Stadium holds 73,521 for football. The MegaPenny Project says One Hundred Thousand Pennies is just over 2 square feet of pennies, or stacked 512 feet. The stadium at ASU is approximately 122 feet from the playing field to the top of the bleachers. The pennies would stack just over 4 times as high as the stadium.
