Isn't this what editors are for...

Last night, the Learning Channel had some random show on ejector seats in fighters and the like. It was rather interesting, but there was this one line that I had some issue with:

The ejection mechanism works in 3 seconds. To the engineer that designed it that's 3 million milliseconds....

Not to be overly nit picky, but shouldn't some editor-type have caught that one? Then again, maybe that's why the planes need emergency ejection seats in the first place ;)
