I was reading a local magazine called Searcy Living and they had an article in there that made me think about how to comprehend how big a BILLION is. With all of the talk on the news about the government giving X number of Billions to this company and that company, they make it sound like pocket change because they use the word Billion loosely. Let's take a look how hard it is to comprehend how much a Billion is.
A BILLION seconds ago, it was 1979.
A BILLION minutes ago it was the year 106.
A BILLION hours ago, our ancestors were living in the stone age. (if you believe in this)
A BILLION dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate the government is spending it.
That is still hard to comprehend but to think that a billion seconds ago, it was 1979. That is 32 years ago and that is alot of seconds. Think about, a billion seconds from now is the year 2041. WOW! Just a thought?!
