And I believe there's an article posted recently in some medical journal that this is not just a silly anecdote. It's a real phenomenon with human anatomy where once your mind is made up the first time to make a muscle movement, you can't stop it no matter how hard you try even if it hasn't quite been done yet - only recover if it's possible. Human anatomy "queuing delay" measured to be a bit less than 1 second or so

So keep away from that ENTER key before you double check!
