    1 million seconds equal 11 and 1/2 days.
    1 billion seconds equal 31 and 3/4 years.
    1 trillion seconds equal 31,710 years.
    Nice. Nice and scary. Math is frightening.

    What? American. What is the difference.

    I ask, with trepidation.

    Billion. Trillion etc have different meanings in US & Europe.
