    Commented in Can Science Cure Aging?

    I really appreciate phrasing aging in every article as a disease in search of a cure

    As soon as a person is conceived, they are inflicted with a hereditary strain of aging and spend the next few decades fighting the incurable affliction, eventually succumbing to it due to the fact that mortality rates for aging are 100%

    The simple fact that aging is an inevitable outcome of laws of physics which dictate entropy over time for every chemical compound, organic or otherwise, seems to be an afterthought in the elusive search for a cure for aging

    Commented in 9 common passive-aggressive work emails and how to neutralize each of them to still get what you want

    "The goal of the passive-aggressive person is to get someone else to visibly act out the anger that they have been concealing,"

    Okay

    'Per my last email', 'Any update on this?', 'Please advise', 'Re-attaching for convenience'

    How are those phrases in particular helping anyone achieve a goal of getting someone to “visibly act out anger they have been concealing”?

    Also angry and concealing emotional state is technically exhibiting traits of passive aggressive behavior

    passive-aggressive

    adjective

    of or denoting a type of behaviour or personality characterized by indirect resistance to the demands of others and an avoidance of direct confrontation

    I mean, come on. If you receive an email asking for a follow-up on a discussion you had IRL and you perceive that request to be an act of hostility because you are concealing anger - is it really fair to say that the email is passive-aggressive rather than the recipient?

    Commented in The YouTube stars heading for burnout: ‘The most fun job imaginable became deeply bleak’

    If it was fun and easy nobody would pay to do it

    People like to do things which are fun and easy

    I don't want to pay someone to do something that's fun and easy. I want to do it myself

    So if you're getting paid to do it, you can make difficulty be part of the fun but it won't be easy. As soon as it starts getting easy, you'll stop getting paid for it

    Commented in Forget BMI. Scientists Just Developed a More Accurate, Simpler Way to Measure Your Body Fat

    X – (20 * height/waist circumference) = RFM

    what is a healthy RFM range?

    For a 196cm tall male, of waste 39cm an RFM index is 64 - (20 * 196/39) = -36 approximately

    What does that mean? A negative 36 RFM index in relation to what?

    If the waste was the same as the height ie 196cm, the RFM index would be 44

    I may not be calculating something correctly...

    This is confusing to me

    Commented in What Happens When You See Regret in Someone’s Eyes

    So on a point-by-point basis:

    On how easy this guy's life is? Yes, I disagree. It's certainly easier than someone who lives in abject poverty or dying of famine but life is not easy. Not for anyone. Life is difficult. I disagree that this person's pain of loss or loneliness is easier than anyone else's because he has money to buy distractions. IMO that makes it different but not easier. Pain is pain and loss is loss and loneliness is loneliness whether you think you can buy your way out of it or not they remain an absolute

    On how dreams don’t put food on the table? I do disagree. I am living my dream and putting food on the table. I have met others who told me the same. I have heard other (like this guy) speak of it

    Or about the benefits of “living without regrets?” I have certainly discovered the benefits as a first-hand experience so yes I disagree

    Or perhaps the motive that these rich people tell us poor people to live under the guise of ‘money can’t buy happiness?’ What exactly is their motive? I don't follow what your point is supposed to be. That all rich people are banded together in one, homogeneous cabal conspiring to delude you into thinking positively and striving to succeed because that is how they continue to enslave you? Well... that's a little out there, wouldn't you agree? Especially since you clearly don't "buy it" yet you are still "enslaved", not so?

    I can post an update later. I need to collect my thoughts into a coherent, non-flaming structure. It's time and effort on my behalf. If you're really interested I will make the effort and create the time

    I personally disagree and could not disagree more

    Commented in Nike Says Its $250 Running Shoes Will Make You Run Much Faster.

    Well if the manufacturer claims their high price product gives you abilities you would not have without it - that’s good enough for me

    They obviously understand the product the best and are clearly unbiased when making their assessment

    Case closed. I’m off to buy me a pair of $250 shoes so I can run faster
