Picture this

If my mental arithmatic is correct - if a grain of salt is worth a Pound then the average yearly salary would about fill a Salt shaker. A Kilo bag would be worth a million pounds. The cost of our EU membership since 1992 would be very large Lorry load - 41 Tonnes.

I can see the advert now!

What are these "tonnes" thingies? I thought Englishmen used tons.

And if one grain of sand represents the thirteen years since 1992, how many lorries full of sand represents the time since the big bang? Can you also do this in your head Englishman?


I made it too difficult, let us use the grain of salt analogy. A kilo bag is one million grains.
