The US national debt clock was recently running out of digits:

It appears even technology cannot cope with the global financial crisis: the National Debt Clock in New York has run out of digits for the first time. (...) As a temporary fix the dollar sign has been switched to a figure--the '1' in $10 trillion. The clock is currently marking the US federal government’s national debt at about $10.2 trillion.

That reminds me of the German national debt clock, that I ran across quite accidentally a few years ago when on vacation in Berlin. I took a photo and subsequently donated it to Wikipedia:

At the time, it was at roughly 1.4 trillion Euros, while now it's already well over 1.5 .

The good news is: At least the German clock is not running out of digits soon. If that's any consolation, with a per-capita share of 18.000 Euros in debt, is a different story.
