Hey UG. I know atleast some of you edumacated peoples will know this.

So I heard of this theory on day that every unit of time in your life seems much shorter than the last (provided it's the same unit of time). Example (we'll use days), the first day of your life will be your longest, because it's 1/1 days. The second will seem only half the length because it's 1/2 days. After fifty years of life one day will be only 1/18,200 of your life. So every day seems shorter than the last, atleast when thought of as fractions.

Does anyone know of this theory? I forget the name of it and it bugs me .

I don't agree, The amount of time in your life has no effect on the length of a day, but what your saying could mean in comparison to your whole life no the day is the same length, but when your using it to measure your life you could be saying the days all add up to a complete number, like a fraction, not just a certain time. Actually no day is the same length, the earth is not in a perfect rotation.

Oh and I don't know the name of the theory.

im pretty sure hes refering to how long the day feels.

I feel bad looking at porn simply because of the ol' story that a lot of those girls were molested as children, But I've never heard of midgets being molested, so it doesn't matter to me anymore, as that's the only kind of porn I watch.

It's nothing to do with mathematics of the world spinning, its all perception. Your relative perception of one day changes gradually as you have more first hand experience of longer lengths of time.

I don't remember the name, but it's not accurate.

The fact is that your brain uses a lot more memory per day when you're young because you're learning a lot every day. As you get older you don't need to remember so much so your brain stores a lot less of what happens, making the perceived time (with hindsight) seem less.

I think u missed the whole point of what he was trying to say. I get it, I never really thought of it before now but he's right, ever day does seem shorter... SEEMs not IS. I would go into better detail, but school started not to long ago and im still not used to the hours so I am tired as hell.

Ok, people, I'm not saying that your first day of life is 24 hours and your second is 23 hours and 59 minutes. What I'm saying is, that one day of four days is going to be 25 percent of your life if you've only lived four days, correct? So following that logic, one day of four hundred days (again assuming this is the first four hundred days of your life) will only be .25 percent of your life.

In no way am I saying that the second day is shorter, mmm'k?
