Time (thyme) - A series of instants that started hella long ago, and is likely to go on for a while. Though travelling through time at a different rate of speed than everything else (typically referred to as "Time Travel") is not yet a technical possibility, the thought of doing so, is highly useful in turning otherwise boring movies into at least somewhat interesting ones. EXAMPLE: Without time travel, the hit movie Back To The Future would have been a 15 minute short subject possibly titled "Marty McFly: A Goofy Young Man, With A Simple Little Life" The Movie Timecop would just be Cop and the producers would likely have been sued by the makers of the fine television program entitled Cops.
Clock (klok) - Typically, a mechanical device used to measure units of time since time started being measured.(generally accepted to have been 543 years ago).

It is easy to see that nylon is the perfect material to use in the manufacture of both pantyhose and Polaris Missiles..
Battery (BAT-er-eeee) - A device capable of storing electrical energy. The first batteries were used by the Ancient Mayans to run their candles.
