Please Take a Moment

To read this bit of trivia.

Actually, it shouldn't take you that long (unless you went to the same school I did) because technically a "moment" is 90 seconds.

From Broken Secrets:

The first reference comes from 1398, found in the Oxford English Dictionary. Cornish writer John of Trevisa wrote that there are 40 moments in an hour (hence 90 seconds each). Oxford has since replaced it with, “a very brief period of time.”
