I know I can't be the only one experiencing this phenomenon. I find, especially when watching a program on tv, i tend to skip seconds and or minutes here and there. I think I'm noticing more so because it's happening during shows that I've seen many times before. I'll notice that, although I am paying complete attention, there seems to be parts of the show missing.
This is a recent event that has been happening with me. Or at least, it's just begun to be noticeable. It may have been occurring for years for all I know.
This could also be the cause of some of the arguments I've been in with people who are close to me. They'll swear they said or did something right in front of me and I even acknowledged them, but I have zero recollection of such events. It's not a matter of me losing my short term memory. And I am not losing my mind. I believe it lies within the skipping of time.
It's getting more frequent as we near 2012. I'm sure it probably has something to do with this changeover that's coming. It may well be that time has indeed sped up, and the brain cannot keep up. I'm sure it's happening to others as well, and I would love to hear about it if it is. Let's find out how common this phenomenon actually is, shall we.
