    Every once in a while I see something that shows how much time has passed by. I got on line a few minutes ago and saw a Life magazine advertisment commemorating the 50th anniversary of JFK's election to the presidency. (!!??!!??!!). I was 7 at the time!

    Just last week it hit me that next July I'll have been in my house for 20 years. At first I thought no way, I've got to be wrong about that and realized that yeah, it's been that long.

    My son it 27....I'm a grandfather....where is it going?

    No, I'm not freaking out about anything at all. Just cannot believe how fast the years have flown by.

    Anybody else?

    I think that as you get older, a given interval of time, take one year for example, is a smaller portion of your entire life, and so it appears to move past faster.

    I remember when I was a kid that a year seem like ages. Now it doesn't seem like its all that long. And im only 18 :eek:

    I woke up Friday morning and realized I was in my mid 20s. It was mind blowing.

    I feel the same way. I started a somewhat similar thread recently where I was lamenting just how damn quick my kids seem to be growing up. My oldest is 16, but it honest to god just seems like it was maybe 3 years ago tops when he was an infant....
    That, plus the fact that mentally, I still feel like I'm in my 20's or early 30's maybe. Then I look in the mirror and it's like "holy crap, where did all those freaking wrinkles come from!??" Time seems to go a lot faster the older you get. :eyebrow:

    Take your time

    The sniper in the brain, regurgitating drain
    Incestuous and vain, and many other last names
    I look at my watch it say 9:25
    and I think "Oh God I'm still alive'

    Bowie has a great take on time.

    Simon98 posted the HQ version above ; )

    But yes, as 2 year olds, 1 year is half our life span, as 40 year old's, whatever, a year is one 40th of that.

    Time is not tangible, its a made up construct used to control the public. Its all relative.
