PSW Article - interesting factoid: "Schrödinger's delay"?

From Section 2, last sentence:

A 1200 ms delay time is equal to one second.

I hope that's a typo and time doesn't stretch as it gets measured in smaller increments.

1.2 seconds is close enough to one second for gov't work...

So does the Meow of Schrödinger's cat arrive 1.2 seconds late, or do we delay our typical reality by that amount to accommodate the late-arriving cat voice?

You're playing to an awfully tough room Michael.....
Thanks for you insightful contributions.

Looks like it now says "A 1000 ms delay time is equal to one second," which again, is close enough but not completely accurate.

It's usually just over 1,100 feet per second, but it varies a lot depending on temperature, and a little depending on humidity.

That said, I usually round to a millisecond per foot when I'm calculating delay by eye and ear. If it's about 120', I'll start with 120ms and go from there. So while not technically accurate, it's close enough.

If you changed it to read "A 1000 ms delay time is roughly equal to one second" you'd be all set. ;)

I'm sorry, Brian, I'm not following you. I'm not sure what's "not completely accurate" about that statement, as 1000 ms is, by definition, equal to one second. The article is not discussing the speed of sound, but time-based effects used in the mix.

That being said, it's been a long day, so perhaps I'm misreading something.

Sorry, what? 1000 millisecond equals exactly 1 second, just as 1000 millimetres equals exactly one metre.

Nothing in the article refers to the speed of sound, or distance whatsoever.  It just talks about how long delay times are.  Yeah, the speed of sound varies based on many conditions, but that's pretty irrelevant in the world of effects.  It's important for things like delay speakers and such, but that's not what this article is about.

You're right, I read it wrong! I got to thinking delay times over distance, and my wires got crossed. Sorry about that!

And now I feel like an idiot.

We have a positive covid case in my house. I tested negative on Monday, but I have to get tested again on Friday. They say covid causes brain fog, so I'm gonna to go with that excuse. ;)
