The Tipo People

The Tipo People

There are many ways to be annoying typo-hunters. Here’s an excerpt from my current Monday Morning Memo®:

 

Monday Morning Perspective: A billion seconds ago it was 1951. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive and walking in Galilee. A billion hours ago no one walked on two feet on earth. And a billion dollars ago was 10.3 hours in Washington, D.C. — Alexander B. Trowbridge, former President, National Association of Manufacturers

Someone actually wrote, did the calculations, and told me that the billion seconds ago was incorrect as to the year. The statement was made 30 years ago, but this guy assumed today. I doubt he understood the message.

Honestly, how do you go through life spending time staring at grains of sand on the beach instead of looking at the stars?
