OK It's been a while, and you may know that Minecraft is now 10 years old which isn't bad for a game... It's amazing!
But I'm sure it was around this week I updated something to celebrate... <Last change on PMC> 6 months ago
Ehm.. well, I must have definitely posted something on YouTube this week! <Last Post on YouTube> Over a week ago

That's odd... but I just posted that a couple of days ago, right?... *soon realises that it's almost been a week since I posted this* ... O_O

No, seriously...

This is a serious poll, concerning the way you perceive Time and if it is speeding up? And by asking myself that question, I came up with this weird idea...

➵ The aim is to vote in your opinion what you think Time is coming to
, so please vote wisely (and seriously) because each vote improves the poll's meaning to me!

PS: The poll will run for about a week to leave you guys the time to think; all opinions are greatly appreciated :))

YAY the Poll has ended! (already?)
Many thanks for your time & participation; the Poll actually means something! (81% says so much!) ;D

well to put it plainly, when i was younger an hour felt like a year but now it seems only a minuscule amount of time - the older we are, the more experience we have with time and therefore can begin to comprehend how incredibly momentary and insignificant we all are. the earth is older than we are capable of wrapping our heads round, and we are only here for the tiniest fraction of time, if you put it into perspective

time is relative, and how we perceive it will always be an individual outlook

It's called age.

When I was a child in Nevada, 10 years lasted foreeeeeeeeever. I lived in 5 different houses or apartments.

Now in my mid 30s in Washington, I've spent 10 years in 3 houses & I feel like I've only been here a short while.

It goes faster when entertainment is present, but when boredom comes time slows down.

Just wait…
…assuming your luck holds you'll reach the point where things you refer to as being 'a few years back' will have happened 10-20 years ago.

More seriously, various studies of the perceived effect seem to indicate that it is due to both the decrease in the percentage increase each passing year adds, and to the comparative drop in the frequency of novel experiences as age expands one's experiential base. (One of the reasons staying 'mentally fresh' or 'mentally challenged' [non-perjoritive usage] is recommended to retain mental acuity.)

My opinion is as the older you get the faster it seems

I mean, I use to think time flies, but for the past month or so, every day seems like an entire week for me! I don't know what the deal with that is, because a single day used to feel like a mere hour to me say, a couple of months ago.

Yeah, time's strange. I think we can all agree upon that.
