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.
A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the stone age.
D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
E. A billion dollars ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes,
at the rate government is spending it.
