Oooh, a nice stretch from a boring thread into a charade!

I'll venture a guess...
... programming languages, especially those used by "User interface" programmers, a.k.a. "dialog-level programmers".

There you go: 1 second, 5 seconds, N second(s).
That last thing is a contribution of the laziest type of programmers to the natural languages - somewhere on par with "s/he" and a "policeperson" politically correct neologisms.
