Err, what’s a ‘Billion’ again?

Another link in the shining chain of ignorance, from the article I linked to in the last post:

It is telling that according to a 2002 National Geographic survey, 30 percent of Americans believed the population of America to be between 1 and 2 billion people.

3% estimated the population of the U.S. as ‘about one zillion.’

Just kidding.
