In August 2015, Service Objects validated our 2 BILLIONTH contact and we’re still counting!
The first billion contact validations took over 10 years – the next billion only took 4 years. To celebrate, we put together some fun facts around the number 2 billion.
Did you know?
2 billion miles is equal to:
– 4,185 round trips to the moon
– 10 round trips to the sun
– 7 rescue missions to Mars for Mark Whatney!*
2 billion seconds equals 63.42 years (give or take a leap second).
Only 2 movies (both by the same director) have grossed over 2 billion dollars – can you name them? **
2 billion $100 bills stacked on top of each other would be 135.73 miles tall and weigh over 450 tons (and also worth 200 Billion dollars).
2 billion dollars would feed 1 million people ($5 breakfast, $7 lunch, $8 dinner) for 100 days.
2 billion goldfish would fill 2 football stadiums. That is a lot of fish food.
It would take 190 years to verbally count to two billion. Just don’t lose count. 🙂
We are truly grateful to our aweSOme customers for making this milestone possible and looking forward to reaching the next billion even faster.
