Pace Oddity : Slowing And/Or Speeding Things Up

If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?

Slowing down things that usually zooms by:  :D Sex! No, well actually yeah. I would want to slow down the pleasurable things so that they would last much, much longer. Orgasms anyone? Imagine a mind-blowing orgasm that lasts for 2 hours! Ah ah ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. LOL! I know I have a dirty mind but yeah why the heck not. So yes, all the pleasurable things in life be it as simple as a great drink or some awesome food, great music or movie, television shows, hanging out with friend, holidays, parties, time in a spa, sleep when you are really tired, good feelings, kissing and sex! All of the the good things and even life in general. As in the lifespan of everyone and your pets. We could live longer and have more fun and enjoyment and good times.

Speeding up things that normally drags on: all the negative things and the boring stuff. Exams, lectures, long travel in buses, trains and cars. The wait for your friends and or relatives to arrive. The wait for your favourite sporting events, movie releases and or tv show releases. Labour, pregnancies, birth, operation, painful procedures, distasteful and non-pleasant procedures, waiting at the hospitals, waiting for your wife to get ready ( :D ) and all other things that could take a long time.

Arsenal 3 Burnley 0

Arsenal recorded a second successive league win for the first time this season as Burnley’s woes continued. The Clarets frustrated Arsene Wenger’s side for 70 minutes before the excellent Alexis Sanchez struck with a close-range header. Calum Chambers then added his first senior goal from a corner as Burnley’s resistance crumbled. Sanchez fired in his second from Kieran Gibbs’s cross to leave Sean Dyche’s side rooted to the bottom of the table. The scoreline was harsh on Burnley, who defended manfully for much of the game, but once Arsenal discovered a cutting edge the visitors’ rearguard was left brutally exposed. Howeve Arsenal should have scored atleast 2 of the 4 or 5 other chances they had. Sanchez scores his ninth and 10th goals of the season.

Carzola was guilty of missing a great opportunity while Lukas Podolski had three great shots on goal – the first of which was a brilliantly taken volley save by Burnley’s keeper Tom Heaton but had he headed it, it would probably have been a goal for sure. The Gunners had been behind in each of their previous four home league games this season but a repeat of that scenario was never likely against a Burnley side who offered little going forward. The hosts dominated possession in the opening exchanges but initially struggled to fashion clear-cut chances. Sanchez was their liveliest attacking outlet and it was he who created their best opportunity of the first period. The Chilean played in Danny Welbeck, who skipped past two defenders and beat Heaton only to see his shot come back off Kieran Trippier.

The Clarets continued to hold firm after the interval to raise hopes of an unlikely point but Arsenal’s breakthrough eventually arrived through the irrepressible Sanchez. Chambers sent in a fine cross from the right and summer signing Sanchez got above Trippier to power in his ninth goal of the season. Burnley’s resistance was broken and Arsenal took just two minutes to add a second. The Clarets failed to defend a corner and Chambers bundled home after Heaton had saved from Welbeck. After Walcott was introduced, the Burnley keeper continued to impress, brilliantly denying Lukas Podolski. But he could do nothing about Sanchez’s second as the visitors slumped to a sixth league defeat. Theo Walcott came on as a substitute in the 80th minute to make his first appearance since the FA Cup third-round win over Tottenham on 4 January.
