Re: weather disasters and all....

Besides death, there is another way to slow it down--do something that's really boring.

Sign of age. Ever notice the older one gets the faster time goes??? During
childhood time seems to be the slowest. I used to think a semester lasted
forever. Now the three months or so in a semester fly by like weeks. Where
did the summer go? Where did spring go?
Sure wish someone would find a way to slow time down, I'd be pleased. Not
enough hours in a day for me.
That's because your frame of reference is getting larger with each season,
or rather, each time segment is a smaller portion of your life.

When you're five one year is 1/5th of your life, so that's a long time!
When you're ten, it's only 1/10th of your life. When you hit 30, it's
1/30th. If you reach 100, it's only 1/100th -- just a blink.

I guess the only way to make them seem long is to die young, but I'm not
sure if that's a good tradeoff. ;)
