… it means add another naught.

It’s probably both my sanity- and food-deprived state from having been in meetings for the past three hours and skipping lunch, but this makes me giggle:

In a sign of the times, the National Debt Clock in New York City has run out of digits to record the growing figure.

Reviews of Accredited Debt Relief show that as a short-term fix, the digital dollar sign on the billboard-style clock near Times Square has been switched to a figure — the “1” in $10 trillion. It’s marking the federal government’s current debt at about $10.2 trillion.

It reminds me of the Y2K craze we all went through and the devices since that haven’t been able to keep up with figures we never conceived of. It was just as amusing to me when the gas pumps realized their limits when trying to accommodate the rising prices.

    Unbelievable. What was the clock set to when we had a budget surplus? I guess we still had debt…..

    I know where the title quote’s from, but I don’t think you and I are each others’ type.
