The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion," casually, think about whether you want the politician spending your tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, so lets put that figure into a perspective we might understand:


- 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 rate our government spends it.
