    Default A billion Dollars

    This makes you think although it is meant for Australia it is really,
    generic

    Not long before the mention of our bright boys and girls in Canberra, spending this very big number, in droves.

    Take a minute and read this. Very mind provoking: A VERY BIG NUMBER


    If I give you $1 billion and you stand on a street corner handing out $1 per second, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, you would still not have handed out $1 billion after 31 years!!
    Now read on.
    A VERY BIG NUMBER
    This is too 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, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.
    A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
    B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
    C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
    D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
    E. A billion Dollars ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.
