Mrs. Fungus said something--I have forgotten what--which prompted me to say, "Well, honey, you know, the government needs that money!" Then I brought up CALC and did the math. "At six million dollars a minute--" here, she started laughing "--it'll be...hmm...."
"It's going to be less than a second," she said.
"Honey, I'm trying to figure out how many nanoseconds it is."
She laughed more.
The numbers came up: 1.66667 x 10e-5, or... 17 microseconds. (That's 17,000 nanoseconds, for those of you who don't know how many nanoseconds are in a microsecond.)
That $101 paid for seventeen microseconds of US federal government expenditures. What we owe the feds would pay for much, much less than a millisecond of federal spending.
As I said, the deficit is over, baby! We fixed it! You can thank us later.
