Quick question - Why can't they make men's trousers with deeper pockets these days? Stuff keeps falling out of mine, even just sitting in a chair. Surely they cannot save that much money with an inch less cotton?
I heard an expert on Time talking the other day, and he came up with a theory to explain the seemingly endless Summers of childhood.
When we are children, he explained, we have a virtually empty memory bank. This means that as we learn, time slows down to allow us to savour the moments far more than if we are troubled by unfolding events which we have been expecting through experience. We live life in the moment, and the length of that moment is relative to our inexperience.
It is horribly ironic that as we become older and slower, time races faster and faster.
