I'm bored and was staring at the clock and I noticed that when I'm staring at the clock the seconds seem to pass by even slower than when I don't look at the clock.

Anyone else notice that time seems to go slower when they stare at a clock?

I notice the same thing. I have an electric clock on the wall and whenever the power goes out I have to reset it.

When I'm staring at the clock on my cell phone the seconds and even the minute seem to take forever to get here so I can set the dang clock on the wall.
