We all know that the internet moves fast and that very short periods on time on the internet feel like huge leaps.

I can't even remember how many threads I've returned to just a day or two later and thought "2 days? Wait, didn't I post in this thread weeks ago?"

What I want to due is work out some kind of consensus on how much faster internet time is than regular time, so I want you to give your ratio here. How long does one day feel to you in internet time?

Be serious in your estimation. It'll be interesting to see if internet-time moves at about the same speed for everyone.

My personal experience, 1 day is about 3-5 days. My current debate with Stephen_Hawkins isn't even 24 hours old yet, but it feels like I've been debating him for the better part of a week now.

So then a week is about a month and a month is about 1/3 of a year, given this ratio.
If you're reading this, you're awesome and you should feel awesome.

This has a higher effect on me because I'm on here so damn much.
I would say that every minute is five minutes, so every hour is 300 minutes.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."
