This Thing All Things Devours

OK, enough about Syria.

Here’s the video we’ve all been watching, a frame a day, in the mirror. Fantastic.

    I don’t think that’s a frame a day, Malcolm. I think it’s several different people of the same family shot on the same day. Then everything was morphed together. Still, great video.

    I think what Gollum meant by his “a frame a day” remark was that, assuming we look in a mirror at least once a day, we see ourselves aging at a rate of one day per day. One look in the mirror per day = one frame per day.

    At least I think that’s what Gollum meant.

    Did it mean that, Precious? Nasty little Scottishes!

    Re-read the post. You’re right! I missed the idea of “the video we’ve all been watching in the mirror”.

    Thanks, Kevin, that was it exactly.
