I'm sure most who frequent ATS are familiar with the concept of missing time, ie: walking down a road at 3 pm and next thing you know it's 11 am
three days later.
The other day , however, me and my girlfriend experienced something quite different.
I was listening to a music playlist, working on an image in Photoshop. Most of the songs in the playlist are 3-7 minutes long. My girlfriend was
taking a nap on the bed across from me.
She woke up and asked me what time it was, I looked at my computer screen, itt was 1:00 pm. Before I could reply she looked at a clock on the table
next to her and said, "oh, it's 1" and went back to sleep.
Three songs pass. I start a new image edit. The edits I'm doing are basic skin touchups, removing facial blemishes, scars, etc.
I spend about 10 minutes per image.
My girl wakes up again, and starts talking to me about her sister for like 10 minutes. I finish the image I'm working on and suggest we make some
lunch. She gets up and we proceed into the kitchen, and start making some
We're still talking, and about 7 different songs have played since she first asked me what time it was, at 1:00 pm .
She asks me what time it is again. The clock says 1:05 P.M.
She looks at me funny, faced scrunched up, and says "what, that can't be right", I say "I know", and go back in the room to check that clock.
Sure enough, it says 1:06.
I then go through the whole house, checking all the clocks. They're all in sync.
We both start freaking out a little. It feels to both of us that at least 20 minutes have passed, I was even leaning closer to a half hour, but the
clock only registered five minutes passing. All the clocks at that.
Mind you we listened to about seven songs of a duration between 3- 7 minutes long during this "five minutes".
Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? We're both stumped.
This happened a little over a week ago.
