Is it bad that at the age of 20 all the days, weeks and months seems to be just blurring into one?

Oh just wait, when you pass 30 it just flies. Before you know it, 40 is around the corner.

I read about this not too long ago. As people get older, any given period of time represents a smaller fraction of their experience, and so time seems to move faster. One year is an eternity when you're 8 (one eighth of your life), but when you're 90, it's almost no time at all (one ninetieth of your life).

This is one of the possible/presumed downsides of immortality. How small will a year seem when you're on year 2,000?

There's a whole article on Cracked.com that talks about it.

So I was gifted a Star Wars notebook a little while ago, and I'm quite pleased with it. It feels quite nice to the touch, the paper of good quality. I bought a beginner's calligraphy set and some ink, and I'd like to write something ... special in it. Trouble is, I'm stuck for ideas on what to write. I was thinking of maybe a short story or two, but my writing method requires a few rewrites, and I'd rather this not have a great many crossings out. So maybe a treatise or two? But on what subjects? What do you guys reckon?

Can't help you there sorry! I'm sure you'll be fine though! Razz Um....my quote is : "If I drink to much alcohol I'm alcoholic....so if I drink to much Fanta, does that make me Fantastic?"

And I don't have a question right now.

What is the irresistible pull that causes drivers to look at one another as one passes the other? I'm telling you, it's a conscious act of will not to look as I go by. Neutral

Good point Mara, maybe it is the feeling if "why is this person so slow?!? I'll pass them" then your mind just wants to know why indeed they we're creeping up the road and forces the look! Never thought about it really but I will try to not look on my way in

Depends on how you see the world. Respect and being liked both have to be earned and they can honestly carry the same amount of weight depending on who you want to appeal to. I think if you balance them you can have your cake and eat it to, but if pressed I'd say that I'd rather be respected. I'm already awkward and difficult to get along with sometimes, so respect is more common than being liked to me. For a presidential candidate being liked is actually more important these days...sadly.

Its all about point of view. Obi-Wan was right, many things can be different yet all true from certain points of view.

You must be like a Jedi and say "option C", only Sith deal in absolutes. Thus it's best to be both respected AND liked. Best of both worlds.
