Man, that title is so depressing if you think about it. Five centimeters per second. People, slowly drifting away. But yet, how hard is it to move five centimeters per second? It's an easy speed to make, an easy thing to do, something anyone could've done. Five centimeters per second is not an insurmountable gap, it's not an impossible goal, it's not a force of nature which would take a great deal of effort to overcome, it's nothing that can't be done, and yet... We let things drift away, we don't run to catch them, even though, all they're moving at, is five fucking centimeters per second.
