This lil video had better be a viral hit, if for no other reason than the subtitles..
In a series of experiments, Van Wassenhove and her colleagues found that what you see can change time perception. For example, if an object is looming in your vision and appears to be getting closer, perceptive time gets slower. The same goes for a sound that gets louder. The reason for this is simple: When you pay close attention to something, time is distorted.
It seems that paying attention to visual inputs can even distort the meaning of sounds. Say you’re looking at an enormous airplane zooming toward you. Time will dilate even if you hear a sound that suggests the object is receding, such as the engine getting fainter.
My ex never wanted to be connected on Facebook, his excuse was that it’s not real, not important. It’s probably never a good idea to take what other people think too seriously, but I disagree with his position that it doesn’t matter. He never unlisted himself as single, despite how easy that is to do. Facebook is a storytelling tool. It does broadcast your life in some meaningful way. It tells your peers, coworkers, and family what is going on with your life through your activity or lack thereof. I’m not saying that it should but it does in this day and age. And when there’s an ex who’s actively trying to weasel his way into your boyfriend’s life, and he’s still connected with him on Facebook, little things can be very symbolic.
