Willem the Math Conqueror

One way I like to describe it to my students is in terms of time:
One million seconds is about 11 days.
One billion seconds is about 32 years.
So, at $1 per second, it would take over 22,000 years to pay $700 billion!

And I'm willing to bet that the 700B is only the tip of the iceberg. I'm going to start putting money under my matress.
