Theoretically, they could dicahrge to 0 volts instantaneously, if you could apply a perfect short circuit. The actual discharge time is related by an equation

V=V_{0} x e^{-t}_{rc}

RC is the product of the resistance you are discharging with, and t the time in seconds.

Mathematically, V never reaches 0, or it does in infinite time. We USUALLY say the "discharge time" is the time for t63% of the original voltage across the cap to decay.

Since time and space are infinitely divisible every 63% reassign the remaining 36% as a unit and await 63% discharge of that remaining voltage, Never Reaching Zero...

But that is ridiculous, any youngster knows it will zero out LOL :-D

I was describing the electronic version of Zeno's paradox.
