I'm starting to suspect this is some kind of gag puzzle, so before you downvote it please consider that I've considered that.
The question is "How many minutes in a second?" with the stipulation being that the answer is "a four letter word in everyday use that is not 'zero' or 'nada' or 'none'" (none of which would really be correct anyway). I've tried math answers and I've tried English answers and can't come up with a viable solution in either. Thoughts?
