A Billion Dollars

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 one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of it’s releases. 

  1. A billion seconds ago it was 1959. 
  2. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive. 
  3. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age. 
  4. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet. 
  5. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.
