    Time

    I warned you guys about my warped, over-analytical mind.
    Here's a rhetorical question for you:

    Why does 90 seconds take forever when you're waiting to heat something in the microwave, yet when you're riding a roller coaster, it seems like 10 seconds?
    I know one is something you want to do and the other is something you want to hurry because you're hungry but 90 seconds is 90 seconds.

    Re: Time

    Tme is indeed a linear, quantifiable and measurable, however, human beings rely more on perception than reality.
    Watch the second hand on a clock for one minute, then hold your breath for the same minute the second time SEEMS to take longer because your body WANTS to breath but is being denied so time feels like it is stretchng out when it is not.

    Philosophically:
    How long is a minute?

    Depends on which side of the bathroom door you are.
