What is Ohnosecond?


Ohnosecond: The span of time between carrying out an action and realizing that you’ve just made a huge, irreversible mistake.

For example, you ridicule your boss in an e-mail to colleagues and,
an ohnosecond after clicking Send, you realize the boss was one of those in the address list.

The scientific measurement gets its name from the sorrowful English exclamation,
“Oh No!”
