Why do they prefer to melt down rather than, well, to not melt down?

In my house, we do time-outs. However, the clock does not start until the crying and screaming stops. Simple, right? Nope. Not for a kid. Why, oh why does a child insist on freaking out for way longer than a time-out would have been originally, instead of calming down and getting it done in three minutes?
