Can I borrow a $100

Last night on Coast to Coast, Chuck Missler shared this. If I borrowed some money from you, say $100 and I told you I'd pay you back in 1 million seconds, I'd have 12 days to make good my word.

If I said I'd pay you back in 1 billion seconds, I'd have 32 years to come up with the cash.

If you gave me 1 trillion seconds, you'd be paid in 32,000 years.

Something to keep in mind when we're talking about government spending.  With this in mind, can I borrow $100 with payment due in 1 trillion seconds?
