From Earl Barron:

Re: Why we feel “slow motion” during crisis (Dec. 11): I saw a segment on TV’s Science Channel (or Discovery Channel) that contradicts your information about the results of the perceptional chronometer. They showed volunteers doing the same free falls as you describe, but they were able to correctly report the number appearing on their wrist apparatus an the point of impact with the net. I’m inclined to take your word over theirs, naturally, but I wondered if you folks were aware of the program I saw. If so, can you comment? Thousands of people are likely to take as truth anything they see on a program aired by a outfit called the Science Channel. While it would seem that the information they receive there is a full of crap as any network nightly news program.
