How much is a Billion?

A billion hours ago, humans were making their first tools in the Stone Age. A billion minutes ago, it was 104 A.D. and the Chinese first invented paper. A billion seconds ago, it was 1975 and the last American troops had pulled out of Vietnam. A billion dollars ago, it was only 3 hours and 32 minutes at the rate our government spends money.

Not sure if this is accurate, but has got to be darn close.

A billion IQ points is about a billion more IQ points than exist in sum total between benz rider and mlfun. It's also, coincidentally, the number of times their internal monologue mutters the term "faggot" on a daily basis.

That's a big number.
