A Really Important Question

Stupidity
This is just something that's really been bothering me for a while.

On a microwave, if you press 6-0, it will cook for 60 seconds or one minute. And if you also press 1:00 it will cook for one minute, or 60 seconds, right?

Okay! So my question is, if you add 1:00 + 1:00 it is 2:00, right? So your food will cook for a total of two minutes. BUT if you add 60 seconds + 60 seconds it will only cook for one minute and twenty seconds. Even though 60 seconds is one minute?

I know, it's a very confusing question.

microwave makers can't do math!!
Microwaves take input options in the form of mathematical questions? oO

If you put it on 2 min wouldn't it cook for 120 secs?

You can enter '9-0' and it will cook for a minute and thirty seconds.

My microwave only lets me add 30 seconds.

I still find it funny that typing in 190 will warm whatever up for two and a half minutes. Sense no makes.

My microwave has been broken for over a month so I can't try any of these. ;_;

This copy-paste makes me as angry as the "cheeze whiz is on molecule away from plastic" one. The people who post it know it's a joke, but then people start believing it and ARG frustrating!

I am so thankful my Microwave has always had a twisty-turny-knob to put in the seconds.

My microwave only has 10 secs, 1 min, and 10 mins.
