Quote Piper at 15 Oct 2011 12.30am

Can a story be true and funny?

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 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 Pounds ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it...

US or UK billion? Makes a big difference.


It used to. Our billion was a million, million. Their billion was a thousand, million. Both are now the latter.

 


Optimistic as ever

Yes, but which form has been used here, clearly the history of this is cut and paste, and then probably from a source that was around on fax machine transfer originally, these things tend of have been doing the rounds for decades, even before email and forums made it easy.

Although it could probably be worked out based on the first premis, I think I'd rather go home and have my dinner.

and a quick calc shows it's neither. US works out to 1980, English one works out to 29,739BC.

I'm off to watch Vickery kick some more arse on Celeb Masterchef.

I was thrown out of my drama class last night.

It wasn't my fault...... the script definitely said "Enter Juliet from the rear".

Polish Barbershop...

This is an actual men's barbershop in Poland owned by women.

And they say women are not smarter than men?


If this barbershop was in your community,
how many haircuts would you get in a year??

Look what happens when we cut down too many trees...


Global warming is one thing, but look at what might happen if we continue to clear our forests!

We have to stop cutting down trees!

This is getting serious!
