Comment Re:The relativity of time and learning (Score 1) 79

I found that my own perception of time improved remarkably after I stopped wearing a watch all the time. When I was 18 my watch was stolen, and I never bothered to get a new one. This was before mobile phones, nowadays I still don't wear a watch but I do carry a phone most of the time - although my perception of time is still pretty good. As you say, that could be age/experience rather than more practice when I was younger.

My friends and I play a variation of this where all players bid at the same time - close your hand, pump twice and on three then show the number of fingers that is your bid. If the total matches the exact number of tricks, the dealer must change their bid up or down by one. This method stops players from reconsidering their bid based on other players. It also leads to some occasions where we are overbid or underbid by several tricks.
