Do you think you can?

Do you think you can count to a billion? Do you think that you know how to, and you know every single number, aand wouldn't get stuck on the way?

School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But - nobody's perfect, so why practice?

Re: Do you think you can?

It depends which kind of billion.
If it's the English one (10^12), then I'd most probably die first.
If it's the American one (10^9), then I probably could, but certainly don't want to.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

I would be wasting close to 33 years of my life if i did (the American Billion), assuming I don't sleep!
