US debt clock running out of time, space – Yahoo! News

US debt clock running out of time, space – Yahoo! News: “So rapid is the rise of the US national debt, that the last four digits of a giant digital signboard counting the moving total near New York’s Times Square move in seemingly random increments as they struggle to keep pace.

The national debt clock, as it is known, is a big clock. A spot-check last week showed a readout of 8.3 trillion — or more precisely 8,310,200,545,702 — dollars … and counting.

But it’s not big enough.”

Reminds me of that awesome fiscal responsibility platform game someone made, where you got to play as Mr T, Hulk Hogan and other heroes of the 80s battling through Bush’s massively, rapidly increasing debt. Does anyone have a link for that?

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
