    Most people know how long a second is....

    1 million seconds = aprox. 11 days

    1 billion seconds = aprox. 33 years

    1 trillion seconds = aprox. 33,000 years

    The human race has been around for aprox. 6 trillion seconds..

    The amount of money it is guestimated the government owes is aprox. 12
    trillion dollars.

    Twice as long as the human race has been around...

    hope helps....have fun....sno

    This depends on whether you're American or British.
