Some years ago I was playing with datasets that had massive discrepancies. As the report was text-only, I didn't have graphs to serve as a crutch, and so had to think of something else.
We tend to be very good at interpreting things we have a direct correlation with. A time interval, as long as it's within our life expectancy, is a very solid metric.
Assuming we're dealing with monumental numbers, millions and billions, we can assume the millisecond to be a proper base.
