As in we hope we don't suffer a prolonged, painful death like drowning for example.

You would want your death to be as peaceful as it possibly can be, maybe surrounded by your loved ones too. 

 

After all this morbid talk I need to go and listen to some of my childhood pokemon tunes for a bit :lol:. But it was nice to discuss things like this too

I got some assorted questions, I'll take an answer to any: 

 

  1. I shave every day, and only cut myself in one spot - there is a patch of rougher skin on part of my neck. I cut myself there EVERY day, and have tried different cartridges and foams/gels. Any tips? 
  2. How to move on the cheap - is the best idea to get friends with cars? 
  3. How to live rurally without a car for at least 3 months while saving enough to buy a cheap beater car?

Depends on how much stuff you got. I remember we used to rent U-Haul trucks back when moving during my grad school days. Grad students aren't really payed a ton of money, and it still felt reasonably cheap back then. Failing that, your best bet is somebody with a pickup truck.

Why is it said that the Voyager spacecrafts are in interstellar space? From what I understand it's said cause they left the sun's magnetic field/heliosphere but there are still objects much beyond orbiting the sun like the Kuiper belt and Oort Cloud objects. Are these objects in interstellar space too? But how can that be since they are still orbiting the sun, isn't interstellar space supposed to be the region between the influence of two stars?

 

I know I can just google this but I tried reading wiki and stuff and I didn't understand properly and I guess I didn't pay attention in class back then

Voyager 1 has left the termination shock and heliopause of the sun and is therefore by definition in interstellar space (that is, beyond the influence of a sun). This is proven by the absence of plasma detections.

 

The Oort Cloud exists within interstellar space. I say "exists" but in reality it's existence is theoretical.

I believe it's because they've been placed on escape trajectories that will place them outside the solar system in the future. For instance Voyager 2 is no longer within the gravitational influence of the sun so it has escaped the heliosphere; it has not yet escaped the solar system but will do.

But isn't it more accurate to say that it will enter interstellar space in the future, but hasn't yet now? I only have a layman's knowledge and I guess I'm confused about what the exact definition of interstellar space is, wiki says it's the matter and radiation existing between two stars, but the solar system still extends way beyond where the Voyagers are currently so how is it that they are said to be in interstellar space? 

 

Sorry if I sound a bit dense but if Voyager had escaped the suns gravitational influence then how are there objects orbiting the sun even been beyond it? I just read up on the heliosphere again and it says it's the boundary between matter originating from the sun and matter from the galaxy, and crossing it means you've entered interstellar space but the solar system extends far beyond the heliosphere so how can that be? I know I'm repeating myself a bit, just that this confuses me lol

Sorry didn't see this. Oh so the Oort Cloud is in interstellar space too, still a bit confused on how that can be since they orbit the sun(in theory atleast) but I probably have to do my research properly. Thanks

Sorry I've made an error there; the heliosphere doesn't relate to the sun's gravitational influence but the dispersion of matter and solar winds from it.

 

The boundary point at which solar winds are no longer strong enough to influence interstellar medium above and beyond that of other surrounding stars (the heliopause) is the accepted marker for "interstellar space"- the Voyager probes have passed this and therefore are within the interstellar medium (IE matter no longer influenced by the sun's solar winds) even though they may still be influenced by the sun's gravitational force. Obviously given the distance between the sun and surrounding stars, the gravitational influence is likely to remain significantly stronger even for matter that exists outside the heliosphere.

What you might do is before you shave,  get a hot, wet, towel and apply it to the affected area for some time to help moisturise the area and soften the rough skin. 

 

I usually try shave after a hot shower too. while my skin is soft and moist. And maybe, if you can, don't shave everyday. Shaving daily might keep it agitated. If you can perhaps give it a rest for a few days. moisturise and then do the hot towel prep. Then introduce shaving every two days and then back to every day. 

 

Aftershave balm might help as well. I use L'Occitane aftershave balm. I never used aftershave balm before this but feels really good to moisturize with it after a shave.

@mr quick& shaving stuff.

 

I think it's the neck.  That's the only area I ever cut myself too.  Actually super cautious because I hate razor cuts.  Heck, I even have a hairlip scar and no problems shaving that zone.  But the neck?  Scares me everytime.  Adam's apple?  yikes!

 

I find shaving is less scary since I graduate to big boy blades.  Expensive as f*ck but worth it.

 

Yes...shave after a shower.  Hot water, rinse blade after every stroke.  I like to heat up my shaving cream as well.  Rinse with cold water, dry, and moisturize.   If any of you are not moisturizing after you wash your face ima find ya and punch you square in that face.  Moisturize!

I've generally found that the longer I hold a hot flannel to my face, the less likely I'll nick myself...lots of people seem to do fine with shaving after a hot shower but personally that's not enough lol

 

also it's worth double checking what direction the grain of your hair is if you have trouble with one spot consistently!

Use a cheese grater and rinse with gasoline. That "new look" on you, will be just as heavenly as it felt with your new "shaving technique"!

Thanks for your advice guys, though I am already doing all these things. Unless by "big boy blades" you mean those old-school safety razors, then yes, I have yet to try that. I've heard it recommended by other friends as well, so maybe I should try it out. I have an old one laying around that I inherited, though I've never tried it. 
... And I don't think I can handle not shaving for a day¬†ūüėÖ¬†The hairs themselves are thick and black and grow very quickly in the initial stage - I even might shave twice in a day if I'm dressing up for an evening event like a dinner. I just feel uncomfortable leaving the house without having shaved.¬†

This could actually be it. It certainly looks as if the hair in that spot is growing "up" whereas the rest is "down". I could try a different direction. 

 

e: I just tried a much warmer shower (I tend to gravitate towards colder water temperatures) than I usually do, and did the patch in a different direction. It certainly helped, but I might still want to try the safety razors

I would say getting a bicycle or a motorcycle for a small sum and managing with it while you save for a car. I did for years before being able to afford a car. Or if your daily commute distance isn't that much, walking his quite healthy. :) What is the mode of public transport in the rural area you are talking of? Here in India we have pickup trucks or older Jeeps converted into public transport vehicles to ride on rough rural terrians. Quite popular and quick at the same time.

^none, essentially. 

I have a new, and broad question - any advice is appreciated. 

I am at a crossroads. I have a degree in a field which is much more lucrative and... existent where I currently live. I finished my studies in june, and will soon be ineligeble to keep living in this student housing. Additionally, I have no money or income. This leaves me with two choices: 

 

1 - Move back to my parents to save money, and move back here later on

2 - Move just outside of the city, and rent a place
3 - Stay in the city and rent with a shared kitchen and bathroom (This option is decorative. I refuse to do it) 

 

The problem is that I want to be where I am, and I don't particularly want to go back to my folks' place - My youngest sibling is still living there, and my eldest moved back (accompanied by a dog) after their long-term partnership ended. If I move back, we're 5 people and 3 dogs in a relatively small house. I am a quiet man who cherishes solitude and peace. One person sits up til around 1:30 and another gets up at 6:00, and the sound isolation is so terrible where my room will be that I will struggle with this. 
Unfortunately, my familial ties are not particularly strong - not that there is bad blood, but I simply feel a little alien to my family. We don't really have too much in common, aside from taste in music, and our habits don't exactly coincide. I like silence, but boy, that TV is running from early in the morning until the last person goes to bed, at the high volumes one might expect from people in their 60s and 70s - such as my folks. I like silence, but the only thing that drowns out the TV is the incessant passive-aggressive bickering of people who predate emotional transparancy and communication, or the dogs barking - which is topped again, by the people in the household whose antiquated dog-training methods include such smash hits as "yell loudly, like a bark, at the dogs, for barking" and "yell at the dog once it stops; yelling at it for doing what you wanted it to do". 

I've mentioned before that I sometimes take the car out to the potato fields simply to sit in silence for a half hour. 

It's not that my family is so bad, it's just too crowded and loud in that house. But, I'd save ridiculous amounts of money. My debt right now is at around $ 56 000. Not too much, but certainly more than my current $0-per-year income. 
 

Rent outside this city would be around $900-1500 per month. This is the big issue. Rent is a colossal waste of money, it's just pissing money into the pocket of some ghoul whose fortune is built upon the misfortune of fools like myself. I could set aside "rent" while living rent-free at my folks' place, and put that money away for returning to here once ready. Who knows what could happen in the meantime. 

So, I'm just looking for opinions on this, if any of you have had to go through similar crossroads. Which of these sh*t compromises should I go for? The one where I piss away more than half my monthly paycheck and can put away virtually no money per month but where I am close to the "industry" for the field in which I am now educated (even if my career was completely reset due to Covid), or go back to stay at my parents' place where I can put away money to come back here, at the cost of solitude and of access to the cultural facilities I desire?

@mr quick I live in a place where finding sub $1k/mo rent involves driving for two hours if there is no traffic and four hours on a typical day, so I know these feels. First of all, see if you can actually find something in the city. I'm sure you've already looked and were discouraged, but there are hidden gems. Ask friends. Join some Facebook Groups. If the place is cheap, there's usually a reason, but sometimes these reasons bother most people a lot more than some, and you might find something you don't mind. Alternatively, some landlords are very picky, and they might not even advertise the place, but they'll let it go cheap if they think you'll be a quiet non-problematic tenant, so long as you're recommended. That's the sort of thing that Facebook group can help you with. It still won't be cheap, but you might be able to find something at the same rate you'd be paying in suburbs.

 

That said, finding a job and moving back is going to be way easier if you live somewhere close. If you can't get something in the city, finding something within distance you can commute if you have to is your next best option. Unless you really don't think you'll be able to find employment any time soon, I would try for that one. And it's a little bit hard to say for sure without knowing what field you're in. Tech is still hiring pretty strong, but there are industries that are basically on ice until better times, and it's not clear how long that will last. So it's hard to say where you fall on that.

Thanks. I'm a musician - I know it's not exactly as tangible a field as others, but I do have a performance degree and had just started getting some footing in new territory in january and february of 2020... Then you know the rest of the story. The move is back to the west coast, I live on the east coast now - it is a considerable move, but I've done it before. 

e: I don't mind other work, in fact, I don't actually care whether I work in the music field or not. I worked in meat industry and loved that.

Moving back with parents is challenging. But it's also rewarding. And now that you've lived by yourself, there is a new found respect for all your parents sacrificed to raise you and your siblings. My point is, that moving back can be a good thing. Reconnect with your family. Consider it being the last time you'll truly live together. Also, if you set a target to live no more than one year, the time goes by so fast. We know this as we get older time seems to go by faster. You can save money and in no time, you'll be back where you want to be. 

 

The other decorative option is not to be dismissed. You might find a quiet couple that have a spare room that want to rent it out and the property is relatively quiet. If you value solitude, silence etc, maybe search based mainly on that criteria. You might even try couples or house-shares of people older than you. People that are past the party phase in their lives. Or find some professionals that work night shifts so sleep during the day and work at night. It's doable. I know one person living in a flat built at the back of family home. He has it all to himself. Or you could find equally someone that shares your same values and hunt for an apartment together? Going in to a houseshare (if more central) will give you more opportunities to gain employment. Living outside the city and communitying will be a pain and if you get a job in the city, it will eat up your time and travel costs. So much so, that you may as well live in the city. 

 

My personal opinion is to live at home. The best two options are living with others. And at least living with family, is familiar and you have a good idea what it will be like. The other is potentially unknown. You'll save so much more in your family's home too.

What is more effective for a beginner to exercise or even in general, a 10-15 minute intense workout with barely any breaks or a 30-40 min workout with few breaks in between? My primary aim is to lose weight

 

Also is it advisable to go for jogs with a mask on? I'm not really a jogger in any case but just curious to know

The answer is, as always, "it depends". What sort of workout are you looking at doing?

It's not advisable to exercise in anything that reduces the ease with which you can breathe, no.

I don't have a proper idea as such, I was thinking of doing some stair climbing, skipping and basic burpees for weight loss with some pushups and squats thrown in for some muscle build maybe. Not sure how to mix and match these so could someone could suggest a way to do so? Primarily keeping weight loss in mind, don't have a target as such but maybe losing 5 kg would be good(don't have a time limit for this) 

 

I read that high intensity workouts are better for burning more calories but I don't know if I can do it, and I don't want to get burnt out easily

 

I also read that dieting is more important for weight loss than exercise, while I don't know if I will go on a diet, cutting down on rice based food somewhat will help too right? Seen some answers on this say that it's a myth while others agree

Lol I am a professional at exercising and yoga because I am very thin (50 kgs at 5'10'')

 

Try out by doing it for 5 minutes, then increase them parabolically until you reach an hour or 2 (ignore the math lol)

You should combine diet with exercise. As for what to eat, you should probably count calories. Burn more than you eat. The body burns carbohydrates first and when it can't burn anymore it starts burning fat or it goes something like that. Based on this you should actually avoid carbohydrates (such as rice) although I know of someone who just ate rice for like a year (he also exercised) and lost weight.

 

Also two things that contribute to weight gain: eating too fast (because you are full before your brain realizes it) and not drinking enough water. So slow down while eating and drink enough water if you haven't yet.

Short bursts of anaerobic exercise (IE 30s full pelt sprints, 30s sets of burpees etc) with short rest periods in between are a very good way of burning calories.

Can you swim? Swimming is probably the best whole-body workout you can do. I've just started getting back into it after about 6 months away from the pool (our daughter being born then Covid). I tend to do about ~2K, alternating 5 length sprint speed then 5 length slow and swapping stroke every cycle.

 

Whilst I've been at home I've been doing this circuit- https://www.esquireme.com/content/44665-try-arnold-schwarzeneggers-free-9-move-home-bodyweight-workout which is a really good at-home bodyweight workout. Something like that combined with a run every couple of days would probably do you brilliantly.

Oh, and kettlebell swings. They work pretty much everything.

You should combine diet with exercise.

This, 1000%. I cut just shy of 12kg over about four months and I reckon 80% of that was diet changes. I've put on about three since, but that's kinda what happens when you get locked in with a small baby and several crates of beer during a pandemic.

^That article has some nice exercises to try. And about swimming, most pools here are closed I believe and even if not I probably won't go anytime soon

 

Thanks for the tips, all of you

Swimming is probably my favourite exercise because it doesn't feel like exercise. The old (and frankly false) addage "do what you love and you won't work a day in your life" certainly rings true for me when it comes to swimming. The only thing that disappoints me is the lack of truly waterproof earbuds so I could listen to music or a podcast as I go, because I find I can only last about an hour before I get bored and/or distracted. If I could listen to something, I'd probably swim every other day and emerge from the pool with a chest like a barrel.

 

I suppose I could frame this into a question - is there any hope in that regard for me? How far along is technology where I might be able to listen to music as I swim? I'd likely need waterproof head/earphones and a waterproof MP3 player but is that viable?

Swimming is great but sometimes you either get really hungry after it or you just feel exhausted. As for waterproof earbuds, seemingly even the professionals use it. This one's called H2O Audio Surge and it has a 4 star rating out 236 ratings. The question is how long is their lifespan if you expose them to water frequently. As for MP3 players, I dunno how common the waterproof feature on those. But I have a feeling that even waterproof products have their limits.

Why isn't Gta IV available to buy on the PS store for the PS4, but you can buy it for the Xbox1. You can buy San Andreas or Vice City but why not IV, i'm itching to play it again.

Compatibility issues maybe? I don't think Rockstar made a port.

Not to gloat, but I'm loving my current playthrough of IV.   No lie...started a fresh game just the other day and I'm committed till the end.

 

But if VC is available to play on PS then you got me beat.  I can play VC on everything else... I want to sit back on my couch and play via xbox.
