It’s just a Number…..

Joseph Stalin once said “One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.”

Well one could argue so is a billion but it’s still a hard number to get to grips with so to help get some perspective on it here are a few examples of just what a Billion means.

A billion seconds ago it was 1959. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive. A billion hours ago was the Stone Age. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet. A billion Pounds ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes... ~ well at the rate our government is spending it.

Thanks a Billion Gordon!

But it's just a number after all………..
