      Thought you might find this interesting.... 
       
      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.
