The Micro-Fortnight: a Measure of Geek Time
If you’re a fully-grown, paid-up geek, then you can use the official unit of geek time, the micro-fortnight.
If you work it out, one micro-fortnight is a millionth of 14 days, or 14*24*60*60/1000000 seconds, which comes out to 1.2096 sec.
Not quite a second, but close enough for saying things such as:"I’ll only be a couple of micro-fortnights".
