smallest time unit. A flick is 1/705,600,000 of a second and is used to sync

framerates and frequencies in media production such as 24 frames per second,
120 hertz and 44.1 KHz, thus ridding the inconvenient and infinite decimals
resulting from the abovementioned fractions of 1/24, 1/120 , 1/44100 (which
will in turn become 29,400,000 flicks, 5,880,000 flicks, and 16,000 flicks).
