So I caught the later part of a talk at UT by Ira Flatow, about creativity and invention. Most of the talk was so-so, but he played a clip of an interview with Grace Hopper, as an example of how important it is to be a good communicator. In particular,he played the segment of this clip from +4:20 to +5:40 or so.

That's probably the coolest explanation of a nanosecond I've ever seen. A good chunk of the audience at the talk burst into applause.

(For a similarly amusing explanation of a picosecond, see +7:30 to +8:20)
