On Thursday, K103 Listener Jenna Chinn of Vancouver failed to stump Mr. Smarty Pants with this question:


Q: A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time, often used in phrases like, "Back in a jiffy".  How long is a jiffy?


A.  The commonly held value is 1/100th of a second, but it was originally the time it takes for light to travel one centimeter.
