    Is potato saying the diary is invalid because one billion hours of phone calls would require 114,000 years?  THAT is ridiculous!

    There are over 7 Billion people on earth.  There will be MORE than 7 billion ACTIVE cell phones in 2014.

    If only one seventh of those cell phones were being used simultaneously, racking up one billion calls would take less than one hour, not 114,000 years.
