I know the answer to it, but do you?

Joe is told that he has to wait a hundred parsecs before he can go home. How long does he have to wait in seconds? (If you look it up, it defeats the point of the test)

isn't a parsec a distance?

Closer to 3 1/4 light years actually.

shouldn't a parsec be part of a second?

That would be a part-sec.

It must be a trick question. A parsec is a unit of distance, and you can't convert a distance into a time.

Except in the fourth dimension where time is a location.
