What Does a Billion Really Mean?


Here is part of an interesting email I received recently. Boggles my mind even more when it is put into this kind of perspective!

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 inone 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 the earth on two feet.

A BILLION dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.

And here is the rest of it.
