I've noticed an odd effect recently when going into the local supermarket to get just a few things. It's primarily found when going to a large supermarket to buy a few items. I'm sure further studies will show if the effects are proportional to the size of the supermarket or the number of items.
Supermarkets distort space and time!
A graph may make this clearer:
As you can clearly see, despite careful timing 72% of the time spent inside a supermarket cannot be accounted for.
I think this is a worrying effect, and we must legislate to reduce these effects:
- Prevent development of any supermarkets larger than current ones, as they may be able to create an effect significant enough to destroy the fabric of the universe
- Fit large clocks to the exterior of the buildings to allow visitors to check the real time
- Check to see if there is also an effect on local gravity fields, which may explain how customers of that size are still able to move
