All you need to know about ping is that the higher it is, the most you suffer when playing online games.

Ping is the time it takes for a server to respond to a request. This is done with a 'ping' which acts a lot like a sonar ping. It goes, hits the server, and immediately returns. So the number is the time it takes for it to return, in uhm... I'm not sure.

Well, shit. Good thing that a friend of mine is building me a new pc. Not that I intend to play online games, but it will facilitate my desire to play Fallout 3/NV.

it's normal for people not to know this
for all intents and purposes nobody should ever give a fuck about pings unless they play online games
or rely heavily on p2p transfers and chat services

more like using skype with your boss 24/7 while you work together on a design and need to be using software such as skype or teamviewer at the same time.

in other words, programs that take a lot of your internet to run smoothly

Milliseconds. In addition to processing and whatnot, the delay is caused by the signal transit time, about 1 ms per 300km of open air, 200km of optical fiber, and somewhere in between for copper.

Five seconds would probably be from server lag. Unless you have a really bad connection. Or you're connecting from half a million miles out in space.
