Probably a wise choice my friend. I've considered getting away from the TV, and computer and just focusing on reading, and other stuff. What are we really missing right??

Don't know if this is the same or not but lately sometimes when I am traveling down a frequently traveled stretch of road I look around and can't immediately place where I am or if I am even on the right road. It eventually turns out I am but I have no recollection of passing the familiar things that would let me recognize where I was. I just chalked it up to inattention but hey who knows.
Perception of time is readily influenced by a person's emotional state. And that emotional state need not be excessive to have an influence. Safe to say that world events have many people more on "edge", to one degree or another, than might be considered "baseline". People, especially those who might frequent a site like this, might be expected to resonate with the increased anxiety of the "Zeitgeist".
I worry about easily impressionable people and how they react to something that a) has always been around and hasn't hurt us and b) making up more and more crazy stories to accomodate this phenomenon [we are now getting an elite that fiddles with time on purpose, the matrix is broken, aliens are messing with our programming, CERN are evil overlords and not particle scientists etc].
