Shawneeo asked for this to be copied:
I'd like to do this to get an idea, for all of us, of how much a BILLION really is. Our country is spending BILLIONS on this and that, tossing around BILLIONS like it's nothing. We've become numb to the notion of how much that is. And these days, you have to be a BILLIONAIRE to really be on top now, being a millionaire is just too common anymore!

So, my idea is simply to either type the numbers or write the numbers in sequence separated by commas. I'll do both, to start. I think you should just do as much as you want to, but, there may be a limit on one post, I don't know what that is though. Just do as many as you want to, post it and the next poster will pick it up. Let's just try this, I think we'll be surprised at how long it will take to reach a BILLION, if we ever even got close to it.

one,two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, 11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, fortyone forty two, forty three, forty four, fourty five, fourty six, fourty seven, forty eight, forty nine, fifty, fifty one, fifty-two, fifty-three, fifty-four, fifty-five, fifty-six, fifty-seven, fifty-eight, fifty-nine, sixty, sixty-one, sixty-two, sixty-three, sixty-four, sixty-five, sixty-six, sixty-seven, sixty-eight, sixty-nine, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, ninety-one, ninety-two, ninety-three, ninety-four, ninety-five, ninety-six, ninety-seven, ninety-eight, ninety-nine, One-hundred!!!!!

Mods: give this a chance, please, and see if others join in. I really am sincere about this, and think it will be very educational if enough people do it and keep it going.
