|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 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 dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate Washington spends it.
