Time Lapse Video: It’s a Wonderful…17 Years.

“17 years worth of taking 2 photos a day as his head rotating in sync with the Earth around the Sun. “

Awesome. I just remembered I need to live life fully and well and properly and cut out the habitual pattern time-wasting bullshiite. Thanks, video:

  1. This is super cool idea and I appreciate the attempt to get us all thinking about aging, which really means – WE ARE DYING! My only rub with the video is that the man in it has actually aged a lotter "better" than most. He looks pretty healthy and thus its not that extreme a statement. But, we are all smart enough to extrapolate the sentiment. For the cliche of the day: what are we waiting for to live the live that we want to live – happy, healthy, wealthy and wise? Followed by the shameless plug: time-tested, practical views, methods, counseling, and specific plans (available online) designed to your individual needs for making the cliche a reality….

      Oh, would you please shut up.

      Your therapies – along with most therapies – are designed for idiots that believe in them. In other words, they could get the same results for themselves without paying you. Anybody with a brain realises that the less time they spend learning about and using "therapies", the more time they have to actually LIVE.

    Such a cool idea. I've always thought of doing that with hands. You can tell so much from a person's hands.
