Now, this conversation in RLT, would be, what, twenty seconds in length? But what about online time? Instant messages are...well...instant, but that's not the point. It takes Jack, being an average guy and not Super Typer, about five seconds to type "Hey Bob" and send it. Bob, also being an average guy, recieves "Hey Bob", takes about ten seconds to close down the internet porn sites he was browsing, and reply with "Hey Jack, how's it going?" Jack sees this, and again being an average guy, takes about thirty seconds to remember what his plans for that night are, another five to remember who his girlfriend actually is, and then another ten seconds to type and send his reply.
