    The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion,"
    casually, think about whether you want the politician spending your tax
    A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one
    advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into
    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 two feet on earth.
    e. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at
    the rate our government spends it.
