How Much Is A Billion?

The next time you hear a politician use the word billion in a casual manner, think about whether you want the politicians spending YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend but let's put it 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 nothing walked on the earth on two feet.
  • a billion pounds ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes ago at the rate our government is spending it.
