    A unit of time is always shorter than the equivalent unit of time required to perform what is generally viewed as a simple job.
    My take is that if you poke someone with a sharp stick they'll get annoyed, if you smile and shake their hand they will be your friends.

    I think Gary has the profound pretty well nailed. My own experience is that time is elastic, it's index of elasticity being exponentially or inversely proportional with the urgency of completion or the anxiety of waiting for the completion, as the case may be, of the matter at hand.

    And yes Bruce, your Einsteinian hair arrangement may well mean that your hair roots are reaching down and stimulating hitherto dormant brain cells. My hair on the other hand just gets shorter and thinner.
