Enter The Time-Space Phone Vortex!
I'm always amazed at how much time can pass when I get sucked into playing with my phone. Sometimes, I'll pop my head up, my dried out eyes blinking at the natural light, thinking I've only been scrolling through my Instagram feed for a few minutes. And I'll find out that it's been way longer - the sun's gone down, my kids have gotten married, the Canucks have won the Stanley Cup.
It's a concept of the elasticity of time that might have made that scene from Interstellar less confusing for some people.
