HliAT #12: Airport Security

How Long It Actually Takes To...

get through security at Chicago O'Hare, from 2 long back-and-forth rows from the TSA folks who check identification, a point @ which I thought to myself "should be about 10 minutes," AND wawlk to my gate ~5mins away: 26:54.20

Even with the walk, which really was just like 5 mins, this is consistent with my idea of myself that once I'm in a line some part of my brain just accepts time and underestimates (in this case by about 2x) the time-cost of the experience. Important note: I was not anxious about missing my flight, or anything. That might have changed either my perception of this time or my actions.
