Quick Minute

I object to this Quick Minute setting on the microwave. Barring travel beyond the speed of light, how could one minute ever be any quicker than any other minute? Time is more or less a constant- or, at the very least, the fabric of time cannot be manipulated by small household appliances- I mean, the refrigerator, maybe, but certainly not the microwave.
This bothers me, every time I look at the microwave oven.


  1. I'm still not convinced microwaves aren't alien technology, so quick minutes could conceivably be different than earth minutes.

  2. Well, it is a a quick min, more or less.

  3. The button is the "quick" way to start a minute timer.
