Default A curious example of warped time

Am I the only one who's ever noticed that years go by several times faster if you measure them by TV show seasons? (For Pretty Flamingo: TV show serials )

That is, if you measure time by a calendar, two years might have gone by, but the TV show you still think of as new has been on for seven years in that same period.

I think you need to watch less tv! Listen to some smooth jazz - it's timeless.

Oh, that makes it worse! I like classical music, and a little of the Big Band genre which mostly dates from the 1940's and seems quite avant-garde to me.

I was sick from school for 3 weeks in the third grade, "Days Of Our Lives" was on. Got into it a bit. "As the World Turns" as well.

Two years later I was again at home for a week, each story was in the same place, same people, same crap.

Time warp maybe,,, or just the drama crap some people seem to adore.
