Do people consider a billion to be a large number anymore? It kind of seems mudane, as it is common for corporations to make billions of dollars, there are billions of people in the world, and personal computers have billions of bytes of memory.
Do you have any favorite examples of a billion that make it seem really BIG? It takes 30ish years to live a billion seconds, but that isn’t all that shocking. How about saying it a billion ______ would cover all of North America, or a billion ______ would reach from the Earth to Jupiter? Or whatever. Lets just go dimensionally trivia crazy.
