A
billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a

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