I first guessed a year.

Comment by Joseph P on January 27, 2014 at 3:52pm

... expressed in the common timekeeping unit for which the next greater unit would put your answer below 1.

My real guess was still pretty damned good.  I was thinking a little over a month.  What was your first guess?

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 27, 2014 at 3:51pm

Yes, I thought of specifying, but didn't want to give a clue.  I thought of saying "in hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, but I would have to go on & on in order not do give a clue.

I finally decided not to specify because I knew what was meant when I heard it asked and figured most people would.

Comment by Joseph P on January 27, 2014 at 3:42pm

I was pretty much dead on for my initial guess.  About 1 millions seconds.  Gotta specify your units, man.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 27, 2014 at 3:01pm

Quick!  How long is 1 million seconds?  Take a guess before you do the math, then do some math in your head, then with a calculator.  

I was way off in my quick guess.  I was very close doing math in my head for one minute.
