What Really Is A Billion?

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,

one of its releases.
billion seconds ago it was 1959.
billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

living in the Stone Age.
billion days ago no one walked on the earth on two feet.
billion dollars ago was only
the rate our government
