I like how everyone`s going "only ____ can be this stupid" without any empirical evidence of the askers true residence

Units of measurement, you`re doing it wrong.

reposterific

& this was a troll post, there was one before this that said the same thing by another poster, this Gage guy is fake or just pretending to believe that for the sake of amusing reactions.

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.

This is why you are stupid Europe.

@xelous "Oh snap!"

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.

What else would you expected from Yahoo Answers

Best of all, I caught him on the first cast! (inserts a "lolz" just to bug @Tobunshi... and @davymid too, possibly).
LOLZ!

[quote]5Cats, did you seriously just type "lolz!"? I think you might be dumber than Gerry1of1 even.[/quote]
YES I did! Mister: "I have no submissions but I like to call YOURS boring!"
You also have NO sense of humour, apparently...

HEY @xelous! I done caught me a big, fat @madestfish! He swallowed the bait, hook line & sinker! Ugly critter though, tastes awful too!

Besides that.. I never mentioned anything about why we have as many days that we have in a year.. Or revolutions around the sun..
Male 646
@insanmonster
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.

I apologize for the randomness of my last post

@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.

@SarahofBorg "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."

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

I`m not gonna make a mean reply to your comment.. Just that how can you call yourself Borg and not be logical?...

I believe it`s called the microwave time paradox.
Male 759
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.

"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.

stop using your microwave as a calculator dumbass.

"The beauty of this site 5Cats, is all IABers are smarter than you."
Oh snap!
Male 2,513
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.

Male 15,832
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.

lolz! It`s a VALID question! Of course the answer is simple enough, I wonder if any IABers (aside from myself) are bright enough to know it.

Don`t feed the Trolls!

Someone needs to study basic algebra

We had a microwave that did something like that. If you typed in 1:00 then 60sec it would say 1:60
Male 5,413
Oh no, they found that question I asked on YA!

Turns out it`s just a troll :(

A quote from Albert Einstein comes to mind...

I figured out this mystery when I was a kid. Either I was a genius toddler, or this guy`s a retard. I choose the latter.

Okay, kids, you may think that you`re being super-deep when you`re on drugs, but, really, what you are is...this IAB post.
Male 314
Wow, just wow.

Such profound non-profundity of thought is mind boggling. Maybe next they will tackle the deep question of leap year.
Male 500
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.
