Uh...
Any other takers?

Weird thing is, Time in units does exist in a real world form. Drive a car going 55 kph or mph into a tree and effect on the car is much more brutal than if you hit a bunch of sand filled traffic barrels which slowed you down over a longer period of time. Momentum is time based. So time in units is a real world issue.

What really sparked my question is the saying in HG Wells's Time Machine. The time traveller tells his guests that an object has four dimensions, not three. Those being length, width, breadth, and time. Is this accurate?
