This is the problem with science and vernacular

Some twit, whether a gold fish or not, actually defines these things so a jiffy is actually defined as 1/100th of a second - I have no doubt as to AR's meaning - I was just being pedantic and a bit of a Roger. A moment is however from memory 40 seconds.

Of course when I tell my wife I will be a minute she translates to an hour.
