Greetings!I can bring you to life, then.
Outside of USA a Billion is a million millions. Its 1 followed by 12 zeros: 1,000,000,000,000.
NOT 1 followed by 9 zeros: 1,000,000,000.
Math is one of the universal languages. You're full of shit if a billion isn't a billion "outside of the USA."
A billion is a thousand million. Period.
