And so informative.  You’ve no doubt heard all about Obama’s plan to cut $100 million from the proposed budget.  Let’s just say that this gives that a little bit of perspective. 



  1. Wow. I knew it was tiny, but the visualization is incredible. The more I learn, the less I like about where our country is going.

  2. Lindy, thanks for posting this. This guy is so right that many have difficulty comprehending the difference between million, billions and trillions…it’s all just more than our minds can comprehend. Had also heard another comparison this week regarding large numbers. 1 million seconds ago was 11.5 days ago. 1 billion seconds ago was 31 years ago or in 1978. 1 trillion seconds ago is 1000 times that… so 31,000 years ago…I believe that was before creation!
