The next time you hear someone in government rather casually use a
that includes the word "billion", think about it. A billion is a
number to comprehend. the advertising agency did a good job of putting
that figure into perspective in one of its releases:
A billion seconds ago it was 1979.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Ages
A billion days ago no creature walked the earth on two feet.
And a billion dollars lasts only 3 hours and 20 minutes at the rate our
Government spends it.
HOLY SHIT, government.
That' s all I have to say.
