I started with million years; it sounded extreme but thousand didn't seem
like enough.  So though SI notation looks accurate, the idea is a range
over two orders of magnitude - and that's clearly in the realm of poetic
for math nerds. :)

I don't remember where/when I first encountered the idea of the 10,000 year
clock, but it's become something I think about every so often.  It would be
interesting to be able to look back on that project and note the passage of
time as fondly recalling old TV series.
