The longest minute?

    Which is longer, a treadmill minute or a microwave minute?

    ... or every minute of every Thursday meeting when you wanted to get back home in time to see Red Dwarf and some elder who loved the sound of his own voice had the mic.

    The "just a few minutes" you are asked to wait, alone, in the main windowless Kingdom Hall auditorium while three men decide in another little room if your friends and family will ever be allowed to say hello to you again. That's the longest minutes.

    What is eternity? You're on the checkout line at a supermarket. There are seven people in front of you. They are all old. They all have two carts and coupons for every item. They are all paying by check. None of them have ID. It's the checkout girl's first day on the job. She doesn't speak any English. Take away fifteen minutes from that, and you begin to get an idea of what eternity is.

    LisaRose I'd park the shopping and go elsewhere if after a few minutes the store had made no attempts to resolve the problem. It would probably take up more of my time but if the supermarket isn't prepared to open up another isle then I'm not prepared to give them my money.

    Sometimes that last minute on the treadmill, after setting a goal, can seem like eternity. Sometimes that microwave minute can be way too quick if you choose to do something in the meantime, like washing a few dishes.

    You're posting a lot lately Simon, have you found a few extra minutes in your day?

    Well supposedly Einstein weighed in on this!

    An hour sitting with a pretty girl on a park bench passes like a minute, but a minute sitting on a hot stove seems like an hour.

    That's what DVR s are for...

    But yes...I get your point. Sometimes, the time just dragged.........especially at the end of an the final speaker went on and on for more happy clapping as elaborated experiences were read out....

    Watch a kettle and it takes more than 2 minutes to boil. Leave it and walk away to do something and it boils.

    It's the sound of one hand clapping. If a kettle boils in a forrest, will anyone hear it?
