This is completely off topic for my blog, but I just can't get over something I recently heard about the US government bailout plan(s).
If you spent one million dollars ($1,000,000) every DAY since the birth of Christ, you still wouldn't have spent as much money as congress just did.
Do you believe that? There are 365 days in a year. For the benefit of the doubt, let's say Jesus was born in 4 BC like most think he was. This is the year 2009. that means that Jesus was born 2013 years ago. That is a total of 734,745 days. But then say we add a leap year day for every four years. That is an additional 503 days. So, that is a total of 735,257 days. That comes out to 735.26 billion dollars. ($735,257,000,000)
Congress' bailout package is a reported 785 billion dollars, according to what I read (fifty billion less than our two-millennium spending spree). But everywhere I check it simply says a non-specific 700 billion dollar number. So, I'd like to hear a specific number from another source just to see if this is indeed true.
