How do we percieve time? What makes it seem to pass quickly or slowly?
All here on the BBC iPlayer.
But not for long, just 'til the 6th October.
I liked the idea the 23 students volunteered to jump 300ft from a building into a net to test if they pericieved time passing more slowly when being scared out of the minds.
I like the idea that by working the brain hard you pack more in to time, that you should do things differently, even brushing you teeth with the other hand to make time matter.
I fancy a new country and a new language. France has its attractions.
