The Olympics could cost fifteen
billion of one of the currencies. In the USA a billion is a thousand

twenty four years. Fifteen billion minutes is about twenty eight thousand
years. And fifteen billion hours ago we had about a million years to
wait for what the professionals call Archaic Homo Sapiens to crawl out of a
simpler place. But who knows about mathematics.
