Out there in London, in the Olympic Stadium, there's a cleaner who REALLY hates 7 billion people right about now.

Yes, and it will rot in the ground, just like you. No one will even remember you, or care about you. You will be gone, and no one will even know.

Let's assume a typical piece of confetti has average dimensions of 1 inch x 1 inch x 0.0038 inches.

If we were to stack these all up vertically, we would have a tower of paper 26.6 million inches high, or about 420 miles. The dimensions of this tower are now 1 inch x 1 inch x 26.6 million inches.

The opening ceremonies were held in the Olympic Stadium. The stadium itself is shaped like a bowl. According to Google Earth, the distance from one end of the top of this bowl to the other is 8217 inches (The stadium is shaped like an oval, I averaged out the distance between the long end and the short end, approximately 8217 inches).

If we take 8217 and divide by 2, we have the radius of the stadium, 4108.5 inches. Multiply this by pi, and we have the area of the circle that the stadium makes, about 12901 inches squared. If we think of this number as the number of spots that we could stack our original stack of 1 inch by one inch by 26.6mil inch tower on, then we can find out how high we could stack our confetti.

Divide 26.6 million inches by the 12901 spots in which we could place the tower, and the area that the confetti takes up changes from a 1 inch x 1 inch x 26.6 mil inch tower into a block of paper that covers the entire floor of the arena 2062 inches deep, or 171 feet tall.

In short, if you were to actually throw 7 billion pieces of confetti over the opening ceremonies, the entire crowd would be suffocated under the weight of a mountain of paper covering the stadium. Try to imagine a crowd of ants lining a cereal bowl, and suddenly dumping an entire gallon of milk into the bowl.

God damn math is awesome.

Since it's biodegradable, it also represents the fact that we are all going to die and our bodies will rot! Yay!
