This morning at our SSC meeting, someone explained to us the difference between one million and one billion! The illustration he gave: "One million seconds is 11 days; one billion seconds is 33 years."

This was welcome information because I didn't know the difference, and even more welcome because it made the meeting longer and gave us less time to complete the work we're being paid to do. I checked on Y*HOO Answers! to verify his answer, and he was mostly right.

I wonder if he asked Dr. Math to get the answer...
1 million seconds = 11 1/2 days
1 billion seconds = 33 1/2 years

Talk about amazing facts...
