Time HAS been going faster

Learned something today, i thought it was just me but, has anyone noticed how time seems to have sped up in the last few years? well thats because it has. December 2005 an earthquake actually sped up the Earth's rotaion. Kinda freaky, eh?

Schuman resonance has sped up significantly in the past years. You are now feeling the results. Yes time IS actually speeding up. You are getting 16 hours instead of 24.

As far as perception goes, each person is an individual in this respect, but I have also found that I can slow the perception of time, experience more, make it feel like things last longer, and still not be bored. In fact, boredom is the enemy of time. But then, I am a little on the odd side when it comes to certain "perceptions". Things around me sometimes seem to be going so much slower then I am inside. Its odd and hard to describe.

How would we notice it? We're traveling at the same speed as the earth. (Okay, not exactly, but if the Earth's average speed increases, our average speed will increase)

However, I think that minor fluctuations in larger astronomical objects causing minute variations of our velocity have a greater effect than internal nudgings.
(I love my perplexing eloquence sprees!)
(I didn't mean to be eloquent... I didn't realize it until "internal" :P)
If the Earth's rotation changes speed, the length of day and night are altered. More accurately, though, they use distant stellar objects as markers of rotation.
I'm not saying how can we figure it out, I'm referring to "i thought it was just me but, has anyone noticed how time seems to have sped up in the last few years?"
Ah, I grok you!

You know what? You're getting older. "They" have worked out that time seems to fly past faster as you get older. It is, they say because you unconsciously perceive the time you experience as a fraction of the time you have already experienced.

So, Summers last forever to a young child, because they're a significant lump of their life so far. Summer flies by to me, because it is only (counts on fingers) 1/160 of my life so far.

Weekends are just a blur.

Weekends are just a blur.

Perhaps the blurring of weekends is due to some other sense-inhibiting phenomenon...

Couldn't be anything else, really, could it?
Hmm... make sense... I've experienced that feeling before. As the years pack on... the school years seem to shrink :P
