Time in perspective

Time in perspective

An hour is 3,600 seconds
a million seconds is 12 days
a billion seconds is 35 years
a trillion seconds in 35,000 years

There were Neanderthals back then.

OK here are more figures for you. The US now has less than 10 million factory workers, and approx two million farms. The average farmer makes less than $50,000/year and is over 50 years of age. Few young people are moving in.

Where I live many former farms are empty, with weeds overgrown.

A new age is coming soon. People of riches will be reduced to rags. In an instant vast fortunes will be gone.
