Nova did a piece on the phenomena of the perception of time changing for different activities that was not founded in physics - activities that were boring, fascinating, exhausting and thrilling. I could not find it on You Tube.
I did like the part about the alien on the bicycle far away who would see either our past, future or present depending on whether he was standing still, riding toward us or away from us - even at the slow speed of the bicycle.
I can snooze through a Nova as well as Wagner's Rings - except for The Ride of the Valkyries.
