    Short but interesting lesson





    The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion," casually, think about whether you want the politician spending your tax money. A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into perspective in one of its releases.





    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-one walked on two feet on earth.


    A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government spends it.


    :D :D :D
