I got a message from my big little brother about the fun fact that I posted two weeks ago:
"If you spell out consecutive numbers, you will have to get to one thousand before you get to the letter A"

- which is true if you consider the numbers only as numbers ie: one hundred ninety four but if you take into account the "and" in numbers such as "one hundred (and) ninety four" it will include an A.

He has told me however - that in a similar way - 

"If you spell out consecutive numbers, you will have to get to one Billion before you get to the letter B"

So. there you go!

Happy Friday ya'll

one of my maths teachers in school told us that you're supposed to only use the 'and' in numbers for a decimal point, so 'one hundred and ninety four' = 100.94. 194 = 'one hundred ninety four'

using that logic, your not reaching 'a' until one thounsand theory holds..well, whole numbers anyway.
