With the progressive dependence on what computers and electronics do for us - in business, recreational and social interactive aspects - the novel I read this week came across as bone-shiveringly plausible.

Eyes of the Father: Passage of time can vary in eternity

"For hours" is Chloe's new saying when she's bored. She uses the phrase in the following contexts: "We've been driving for hours." "We've been watching this movie for hours" (depending on what the movie's about, I may actually agree with her assessment).
