The next time you hear a politician casually use the word "billion", think
about whether you want that politician spending your tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but recently one
advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into perspective:
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
A billion days ago no living being on earth walked on two feet.
A billion dollars lasts only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate the US
government spends it.
