It's only numbers......................

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers. Richard Feynman
That means there are more dollars in the deficit than there are stars in the skies. I can't believe this is what our forefathers perceived would happen at the Boston Tea Party.

I put one of these in my AOL Journal back in 2006 I think. Not gonna look, already know how much trouble we're in, and I'm not running away to Canada. Think I'll stick out the coming depression, maybe round out my life a bit. It's always good when you're given a chance to help out y'know? Not that we MADE this mess but what's the diff, it's here and we can dig in, eat garbage, work hard, gain character. Right.
