Dear nuts,

I would like to propose a new unit of time, the 'textsecond'.  This is
the interval of time from the time the signal light turns green to
when the driver behind the idiot texting driver honks their horn.
Still collecting data on its exact length, but seeing a lot more
examples lately.

I'm sure there is probably a much more clever name (and there are a
lot of clever time-nuts out there).  However, I don't want this
comment on social behaviour to blossom into a lengthy OT thread.

Regards,
Skip Withrow
