From a trusted colleague who confirmed it on his scientific calculator:
There is a lot of talk about trillions of dollars these days. I heard this last week and verified it with my trusty HP calculator.
A million seconds ago was last week (11 days ago).
A billion seconds ago, Nixon was running for re-election in April of 1971.
A trillion seconds ago was 30,000 years before the birth of Christ.
Wow, a Trillion is really big!
