Millions with Meaning.

What once seemed to be such an unimaginable figure, a "million," is like small change now when dealing with dollars. The measly million (as we have come to think of it) still has power to amaze though: There have been found evidences of early, upright-walking hominids in Kenya - dating from 1.51 to 1.53 million years ago. Amazing, eh? Staggering to contemplate, eh? Don't even try to think of it in terms of dollar bills laid on end and representing one year each. Just let yourself admire that wonderful figure. Just think: We humans have a one and one half million year history!
