One trillion

I’m sure you’ve seen this before, but I liked it so much I thought I’d pass it on:

1,000 (thousand) seconds = 17 minutes ago
1,000,000 (million) seconds ago = December 7, 2008
1,000,000,000 (billion) seconds ago = 1976
1,000,000,000,000 (trillion) = 29,702 B.C.

Feel free to check my numbers.
86,400 seconds = 1 day
31,536,000 seconds = 1 year

  1. Ok dedwarmo – a challenge as you like numbers.
    Assuming the current evidence of the age of the earth is correct and it is say 4.5 billion years old –
    Then how many seconds is that?
