The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion" in a casual manner, think about whether you want "politicians" spending you tax money.:banghead3 :bonk: :bash: * 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 one walked on the earth on two feet. * A billion dollars ago was only eight hours and 20 minutes, at the rate the government is spending it. Let's take a look at New Orleans. It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division. A Louisiana Senator is presently asking the Congress for $50 Billion to rebuild New Orleans.
