What's a billion?

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 two feet on Earth.
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the current rate of government spending.

  • Sounds just like our government. Where on earth do you come up with these things?

  • Well, yeah, when the budget measures in the trillions, it's to be expected.

    What's also interesting is that America's budget for defense alone is more than that of the rest of the countries on this planet combined.
