Before I forget-you can head over to my photo blog to see a great fix it for me this week and some "cold" pictures!
The other day when we were driving in the car Lucas and Alex began having a discussion.
Alex: "To infinity and beyond is the biggest number."
Lucas: "No, because you could have 'two-to-infinity-and-beyond', then 'three-to-infinity-and- beyonds all the way up to '200-to-infinity-and-beyonds"
After I stopped laughing I explained to them what infinity meant and told them that "to infinity and beyond" was just something Buzz Lightyear said.
This lead to Lucas talking about how high he could count and he asked how long it would take to count to a trillion?
So I busted out my calculator on my phone, don't worry Eric was driving, and we did some math.
Assuming you count 1 number every second (yes this would be hard to do when you are saying big numbers I know-but just go with it)
So 1 number every second-there are 60 seconds in a minute X 60 minutes in an hour X 24 hours in a day X 365 days in a year X 80 (a good average life span)= 2, 522,880,000 or 2.5 billion.
And to think, the federal debt is at a record high of 14 Trillion (or approximately $45,530.97 per person.) A number a person could never even count to in their entire life time.
