You either have too much of it, or not enough.
Time likes to play tricks on us. And, like a practical joker that can kick your ass, you just have to put up with them
All our definitions of time state that it is invariable. One second is as long as the next second. One year is as long as the next year. Using this idea, we can pretty much guarantee that when you say to a girl "I'll meet you in Starbucks at 5:30" and she doesn't show, it is more likely your lack of basic hygeine and social skills that are at fault, rather than her watch running at a different rate than yours. Of course, it could be her time of the month, but that is a topic for another day.
Her watch must be running slow.
Sadly, people do not see time as regular. People see time in three ways: time, slow time and fast time. And this is where time's dickishness comes in. You cannot pick! Regular time is always the run of the mill shit - eating, watching TV, chatting, driving. But the instant you do something fun, old father time decides to go for a sprint.
Of course, sometimes it REALLY only takes 5 seconds
The reverse happens too. If you are bored or in pain, time drags. Every minute is an hour. You know this, we all remember Algebra class, and being on the recieving end of a beating.
The advantage of slow time - 8 hours sleep in 40 minutes
However, Time has one more joke on you up it's sleeve. Time is important - punctuality, deadlines, you boss all scream. It is as vital a part of your life as your
morning shower (Ed: wrong audience) daily Cracked check - indeed the way you actually define your life. Then science tells you time doesn't exist. There is no past or future. Just a changing now.
Fuck you, Science
Our brain hurts too.
As time is difficult for people to conceive, the timeline, a graphic representation of time, has come into fashion. The scales may vary, but they all have one thing in common. Pre humanity is always "Who Cares"
We were going to 'shop a Timeline, then found this. Thank you NASA - it is fucking awesome!
