24 Images That Will Make You Bow Down Before Time

Cats don't really track the passage of time. The thing is, their paws are too small for wristwatches, and even if you made one for a cat, their bad eyesight would prevent them from reading it. They also don't care much for wall clocks, for some unknown reason, unless they have a swinging pendulum. Cats are mysterious, just like time itself.

But if there's one thing that we can say with full certainty is that time means change. Simple laws of entropy work to wear things down, grinding life to dust. Passage of time also means that people and things have to add layers of stuff, transforming the original object. Here are 24 examples of time changing things!
