    That is not relativity. Everyone who sits on a red hot cinder will see it the same way.

    Point being is that the passage of time seems slow or fast depending on the circumstances ... it is relative to the circumstances.

    CTB, I understood what you were trying to say. Some of your detractors need to lighten up.

    Thanks for giving me credit, but Einstein said it.

    Perhaps it was too subtle for some to understand. Some of the replies seemed very strange to me.
