Oh, you thought you knew how much a Billion is? WRONG!

Actually, in America and Britain a billion is what you think it is, but in most of the non-English speaking European countries, a billion has a different value, and truthfully, it does make a lot more sense using this "long system" for naming large numbers.

Pretty interesting.

Yeah that was the same for me. After seeing how much more logical sense the long system makes, I really want to switch lol. Fat chance, though, we can't even get on the metric system!
