In cognitive psychology, the telescoping effect (or telescoping bias) refers to the temporal displacement of an event whereby people perceive recent events as being more remote than they are and distant events as being more recent than they are. The former is known as backward telescoping or time expansion, and the latter as is known as forward telescoping.
Oh, that was just last year when I got my Vespa bag five years ago.
PS- I’m still using it today.

I’m always so proud of myself when I walk out of the grocery store without any ice cream.
In related news: I’m always so disappointed with myself when I’m sitting on the couch later without any ice cream.

Following a meteoric rise to just shy of $20,000 per coin less than two months ago, Bitcoin, the oldest and most valuable cryptocurrency, fell below $10,000 on both the Coinbase and Bittrex exchanges for the first time since early December. It’s far from the only digital token plummeting.
Nearly every cryptocurrency is down, most by double digit percents, according to Coin Market Cap. The crash seems driven by fear of looming regulations from Germany, stricter laws in South Korea, and an increasing involvement by the SEC. Reddit community r/CryptoCurrency is directing US-based community members to the Suicide Hotline while panic ensues.
Every now and then people will ask me about Bitcoin. I don’t know how it works under the hood but I get the gist of it.
What I also get is the reoccurring feeling that I like stable and mature technologies. Crytpocurrency is volatile and people involved are lunatics.
From the Gizmodo article comments:
99% of the ‘hodlers’ have no idea what they’re talking about, the other 1% is hoping to scam the 99%
Have fun with all that.
Bitcoin and its kin are here to stay for sure but until you can buy stuff on Amazon with it, meh.

I can only feel hurt and blame someone else for so long. And after that time is over I have to either say something or let it go. I don’t have the right to hold onto my hurt for years if I’m not gonna do anything about it. Not doing anything other than hurting, well, it’s not fair to the other person and it’s definitely not fair to me.
Living with that hurt keeps me from being the best me that I can be. That hurt stand in the way of all of my relationships.
There’s a lot to be said for saying something out loud. When things are up in my head I can’t make sense of them. My thoughts are like a whirlpool or tornado. Or both. They’re just going around and around and they don’t make any sense. My emotions are all muddy and I can’t get the clarity to know up from down.
I don’t sit with things very long in the here-and-now because I’ve learned that life lesson. That I’m only going to be hurting myself and most likely innocent bystanders by not speaking up.
Also, I never write something in hopes that someone else will read it. That misses the point of everything I just wrote.

“A lot of today’s Hollywood films don’t have a lot of patience,” he says. “They sort of expect the audience to get bored really quickly, so they’re like, ‘We’ve got to have an explosion every 10 minutes.’”
But the slow pace of Blade Runner 2049 is proving a challenge for many viewers, and so far the movie hasn’t attracted an audience that extends much beyond fans of the original. Michener thinks it’s appropriate that the film, like its predecessor, is a box office disappointment. “They made a sequel to a cult classic,” she says. “It was not designed to work with the Fast & Furious crowd.”
I seriously hope nobody expected it to be a blockbuster.

Peeps, here’s your so-you-can-wipe-off-that-grin Monday afternoon jam to continue with the relationships are hard theme.
The interesting thing for me about this song is that when I was a kid going to the school skating parties, the boys and girls would always skate together like this was a couples song.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life” — something magical was about to happen for them guys and girls skating out there in the dark.
But then I was always confused about Collins letting someone drown. It wasn’t until years later that I learned that’s this definitely isn’t a love song. It’s another of my favorites for sure. It’s the definition of marriage macabre.
Musically, the drums are center stage and who can resist their 3:15 mark? You know you love it.
