“Why Does Time Fly By As You Get Older?”

A few days ago, NPR had this interesting segment on why time seems to go faster as we age. (8:37 audio) Interesting stuff. I liked the different explanations the segment offers, and I would add one more: A watched pot never boils. When you’re younger, aging is a great thing and you eagerly anticipate being older. The anticipation makes you much more aware of the passing of time.
