Really big numbers, in perspective

Sometime today, I’ll hit two age milestones:

  • 20 million minutes old
  • 1.2 billion seconds old (simple math from the minutes figure, but somehow it surprised me)

Seems even more ludicrous when I write the numbers out:

  • 20,000,000 minutes
  • 1,200,000,000 seconds

Start flinging around numbers like these, makes me feel positively antique. And somehow “38 years old” seems so much younger now.
