    …perhaps, but one man’s 24 hours is another’s nano-second.

    20 years seems pretty small sometimes.

    I believe our brains work on percentages. For Kyle, a year would be a big part of his memory. For a retiree, a year is 1-2%.

    Years ago, a penny would have been a 5% jump in gasoline prices. Today, it takes 25 cents to get the same result.

    I like the kids attitude, but Ewal Do is right…All I know is that if it seems like something happened just a couple years ago, it really happened more than ten years ago……

    Its funny how the same thing can seem so big, and so small even to the same person

    Time moves subjectively in inverse proportion to how quickly we actually want it to go.
    For example: Every day, I spend 72 hours at my eight-hour-a-day job, but then the next 16 hours goes by in three!

    I agree, when you are 10 a year is a tenth of your life and when you are 60 it is a sixtieth I have long thought this why years seemed longer when I was young. On a similar note; Once when Einstein was asked to explain relativity he said that If you are talking to a pretty girl a minute goes by very quickly but if you were to hold your hand on a hot stove a minute would seem to last a very long time.

    Dear Frazz: I believe that for most normal people, if they heard a kid on October 23rd exclaim “Ready for the big day!” the logical response would be “Oh yes? So which team are you rooting for?” But no, you’re right – the World Series isn’t a worthwhile or exciting sport like your precious triathalons, or that phony-baloney “Tour de Frahnce”!

    Wrong, we normal people would be thinking in terms of Halloween costumes and ‘trick or treat’ routes

    I wonder how Frazz is doing with his triathlons.

    Maybe Frazz would be thinking Mole Day.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Got me again!

    You’re off target, though. (Again.) I’ve never derided Frazz’s devotion to solo endurance sports. (Heck, I run, bike, and swim myself.) No, what you have read from me is my bemusement at Mallett/Frazz’s intolerance of other sports. It’s not enough to enjoy his triathletic obsession and be happy for those who enjoy other things? No, he has to repeatedly mock football, auto racing, etc., as well as their fans. I find it strange.

    Frazz is held up as this enlightened, great guy, and a role model for kids. At times, though, he’s written as a petty, supercilious jerk.

    Gee, a jerk that mocks others.
