Time is relative, 1 unit of time doesn't necessarily, subjectively, equal the same unit of time under different circumstances. When time is slow: Waiting for a mandated waiting period to be over. Waiting for the first day of deer season to get here. Waiting for the red light to turn green when you're close to being late to work. Waiting for 5pm on Friday of a holiday weekend. Waiting for a repair to your favorite gun. When time zips by: An evening out with good friends. Hours at the gun range when you're paying for each one. How long a box of 50 rounds of ammo lasts for your favorite gun at the range. In short, how long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door you find yourself.
