    People have always been this dumb, since forever. We just have Yahoo Answers and screen shots now and that allows us to better document ignorance.

    Such profound non-profundity of thought is mind boggling. Maybe next they will tackle the deep question of leap year.

    It`s simple. If you enter 1 or 2 digits, which can be a value from 1-99, they are read as seconds. If you enter 3 or 4 digits, all but the last 2 digits are shifted to the minutes. It will count down the seconds to 0, then decrement the minutes by 1 can carry 59 seconds to seconds place.

    So :60 is the same as 1:00; :99 is the same as 1:39; 9:99 is the same as 10:39.

    All microwaves do that.

    If I put 90 into my microwave it`ll cook for 90secs but if I put 100 it`ll run for 60 secs.
    Clearly 90 is more than 100, thank you for basic maths microwave.

    I don`t understand this whole 60 seconds = 1 minute crap. While can`t we have centi-seconds? Why 60? Why not 100 like rational people? Same with 60 minutes = an hour. It`s so damn confusing.

    "I don`t understand this whole 60 seconds = 1 minute crap. While can`t we have centi-seconds? Why 60? Why not 100 like rational people? Same with 60 minutes = an hour. It`s so damn confusing."

    Its because of the human fixation on the number 12. 12 months, 12 hours, 5 minute increments of 12 equaling 60 in an hour.

    Think of the 0:00 as not a timer, but as a place holder for numbers. Before the colon, you put in minutes, after the colon you put in seconds, done and done.

    Funny how so many of you try long winded explanations to a timing shortcut.

    60 seconds = 1 minute.
    2 minutes = 120 seconds.
    1.00 = 1 HOUR and no seconds. Thats 60 minutes.
    Add 1.00 and 1.00 thats 2 HOURS and no seconds.
    Or 120 minutes.
    You`re reading it wrong. Getting hours and seconds confused. Americans! Hey. You want to be a colony again? You`ll get a better education.

    It`s based on the revolution of the Earth...

    @HI-haola
    Time has nothing to do with the rotation of the earth. It has to do with quantum vibrations in atoms. It has been a while since I have studied any quantum and I am no expert but the earth rotates around the sun around every 365.25 days (which is why we have a leap year). The way we measure time is completely independent of the number of days in a year.

    I`m not talking about the theory of relativity or anything man.. Sheesh..
    I`m just saying that time, as we calculate it on earth, is based on revolutions of the earth. Meaning that we started of in Egypt (spread to Greeks after) with sundials and split the day and night equally with 12 hours given to each one.

    Your sarcasm filter is not working properly. It`s either a loose connection or a defective unit. Smack your head on the desk and if that doesn`t fix it, send it in for inspection.

    Sarah, 60 is considered to be a nice number to work with because it`s evenly divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, and 30, while 100 is divisible by fewer numbers: 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, and 50. It`s the same reason a circle is divided into 360 deg -- it`s divisible by lots of whole-number factors.

    The only reason we use base 10 numbers is because we have 10 fingers. We might not have been as dexterous with only 8, but our numbering system would have been simpler. If we had 12 fingers, though, a base 12 system would be pretty nice if you like to divide by 3 which is a pain in the @$$ in base 8 or 10.
