How Much Is A Million And A Half?

If you stuffed 1,500,000 golf balls into a school bus you would need 3 large school buses.

If you timed 1,500,000 minutes from now it would last 2 years 10 months 6 days 9 hours and 36 minutes. (So, starting from 6am on the day of this posting, August 10, 2015 it would take you to June 16, 2018 at 3:36pm!)

If you travelled 1,500,000 miles around the Earth you'd circle the globe more than 60 times.

And if you were counting blog hits, you'd be here.

Yes, "I'm Here. I'm Queer. What the Hell Do I Read?" just rocketed past 1,500,000 pageviews!

Very cool.

Thanks, as always, for reading,
