 Description     : Max amount of milliseconds that can be passed to `setTimeout()`
 
Values larger than the one returned from this module, 2147483647 (~25 days),  
are too big to fit into a signed 32-bit integer,                          
which is how JS engines store it, and will cause overflow,                
resulting in the timeout being scheduled immediately.                     
.
Node.js is an event-based server-side _javascript_ engine.
