        New release of time? I don't suppose they implemented the ability to pause, fast-forward and rewind? If I could pause time right now I'd get a little extra sleep...

          /usr/bin/time is different from the bash built-in time. I'm not sure why the bash built-in exists.

          From the man page: Users of the bash shell need to use an explicit path in order to run the external time command and not the shell builtin variant.

              There were several moments when I was a kid and holding the VCR remote in my hand wishing it would work on life. I even had a wired "remote" control to our Betamax. Now I feel old

                  The Bash builtin can deal with pipes, unlike the separate program with the same name.

                    Please don't do it.
                    Existence in paused universe would be very boooring - nothing happens - even thinking will be paused.

                    Also it could be quite dangerous. When you pause the universe - there is no way to unpause it from inside... Perhaps pause with countdown limit, but wait... countdown in paused universe where time stopped "ticking"?
