What is a Billion ?

From a Person on the Yahoo Finance Message board. I don't know who they are , but it does make sence. It's always hard to believe that people in Washington think it's their money. We pay taxes, it's our money!!!!!!!!

Subject: How much is a billion? !!!!!
Here's somethought provoking information
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 was1959.

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 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.

While this thought is still fresh in our brain, let's take a look atNew Orleans -
It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division
..........Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu(D), is presently asking the Congress for $250 BILLION to rebuild New Orleans. Interesting number, what does it mean?

a.. Well, if you are one of484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, child), you each get $516, 528.

b.. Or, if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans, your home gets $1, 329,787.

c..Or, if you are a family off our, your family gets $2,066,012.



Are all your calculators broken????
