The standard deviation however (the square root of the variance) is again measured in seconds so it measures something similar (at least physically similar) As for why we like the square-root-of-average-of-squares better than the average-of-absolute-values - the square has better mathematical properties as shown in other answers and in the link you referred to (particularly Rich's answer)

This is not true of absolute deviations--there could be many different normal distributions that have the same mean and mean absolute deviations but which differ wildly in other respects I do not know if it is possible to write a formula describing a normal distribution in terms of mean and mean absolute deviation but if it is it would certainly require more than two parameters--most likely
