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.
I'm just a cro magnon masquerading as one of you.

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.
