JusJoJan 27th… time flies!

My understanding of time is that it is a constant… physics 101. My experience of time is completely different to my understanding.

Take today, for example, it’s the end of the month already! This one passed quicker than previous Januarys.

Not that I’m complaining. It’s pay day and nearly the weekend. I just need to find a way to make time pass more slowly over the weekend so it feels like a three-day weekend!

Today’s word, understanding, was suggested by Kim and hosted by Linda. Please visit with them and give them a wee follow!

#JusJoJan 11th – tempus fugit

What is it about time that makes it feel as if it’s moving at snails pace on a Friday afternoon, particularly the last working hour of the week? Then come Sunday, it races as fast as possible, trying to be Monday morning way before I’m ready for it.

If you thought that time was a constant fixed rate of ticking and tocking you are in for a surprise. In the world of Einstein’s theory of relativity,  it is highly likely that time flew faster last Sunday than it did on Friday afternoon, especially if you were at a higher altitude on the Sunday compared to Friday.


Me too!

However, I found an article published in 2010, which attempts to explain it all. Click here to read it.

It seems that time does indeed fly faster the higher up off the ground you are. Good news if you’re suffering from flu. Get yourself transported to a penthouse suite and recover faster under the influence of a faster time stream, than staying at ground level.

Happy Friday everyone xx

Thanks to Linda and M! for supplying today’s prompt, ‘flew, flu, flue’.
