"If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!"

Erm.. or some scissors.

I disturbed a pair of scissors that were on a shelf in my bathroom.

I pulled my towel down after taking a shower this morning and they were hiding underneath.

I saw them fall and they would have landed on my foot if i hadn't moved it like a ninja!

Which got me wondering.. are their techniques to improve reflexes?

It also made me wonder about time perception. You know, the whole "bullet time" thing isn't unfounded.

But is it possible to consciously slow down the perception of time?

I once fell off a 2-story building. It felt like I was in the air forever.. as time slowed down.

Of course, it sped back up when I hit the ground.

That part sucked.
