A BILLION

We have seen this a few times, but it still makes a lot of sense to pass it on.

The following is to true to be funny. 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, allow me to put a billion into perspective for you to grasp the

amount.

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 with two feet.

5. A billion

Did you think a billion was that big !!!
