You were playing your favorite video game (which your mom and dad told you specifically not to), when all of a sudden, oh noooes! A BSoD (blue screen of death) appears, you panic, not knowing big boi words. It restarts, then says get fooled! You've been gnomed!

Funny BSOD prank. I tried it out with my dad, he totally got fooled XD. Kinda hard to prank people since it's on a webpage (for the people who know nothing about computers, it may be easy), but nevertheless fun. Looks sooo authentic, I even put real errors in there (yes, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_GREATER_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO is an error)! Hope you like it (hint: works best in full screen) :)

They lose precision over time, so, for a minute, it should be accurate, 10 minutes... maybe, don't go too far. SO has this post on them: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12351521, I personally have never needed timeout/interval, but I think there was one time where I saw them used, that was pretty cool, I think
@AdCharity
had used something like Promise.all on a promise and a delay that rejected to create HTTP timeouts, maybe the wrong person? But still, cool nonetheless.

Timeouts are a very niche feature.
