this belgium weatherman, Frank Deboosere, started a website with a clock that counts to 1 billion in seconds, I heard him talk about it on the radio today, he said we’ve forgotten how much a billion really is. It’s used so regularly in science or economics that we’ve forgotten how much it really is.
wel to count to a billion in seconds is gonna take 32 years!!!!
a shame it’s an ugly website, but i really like the idea!
wanna see it anyway? check it here!
