Pointless Trivia

By my calculations, I will be 1,000,000,000 (one billion) seconds old around 8:40P.M. on July 2nd of this year. (That's a little over 31 and a half years old.)

If you want to see how many seconds old you are right now, check out this site. But this only works for people over 5 years old. (Don't put in the '19' part of the year you were born in. e.g. '1973' get's put in as '73'. Otherwise you get a negative number.)

990+ million and going strong!

Actually, I think you meant 1 billion minutes.

No. Defininately seconds. A second is a lot longer than you think.

(And a billion minutes would be somewhere around 1900 years or so.)

Ok, I found the problem. For some reason, the number returned with 6 in the front of the digits.

I blame IE 5.0
