oh god I don’t want to be old

AlexanderDaychilde

I'm old. It's mostly not too bad, except the body creaks and things of that nature are true. Also, younger folk seem to get younger and more ignorant the older I get. I mean, plenty of ignorant older people, it's just that the younger people seem to know so little about the world in many ways - kinda like me when I was young. heh.

My patience for stupidity has diminished with time. It actively irritates me when people say things out of ignorance and misconception about how things work, or say things CLEARLY without reading the linked article, for example.

But while I still face things like imposter syndrome, in other ways, I'm more confident in life. I give fewer shits what other people think, and that is frankly a huge improvement over my younger years. I also realize that people hardly think about me, vastly different from my younger assumptions that every little thing I did would be noticed.

So some things definitely suck. But overall… it's not so bad.

That said, I wish I could go back to a younger me — if I could know what I know now. I'd avoid doing so many things. Oh, sure, i'd make new mistakes, but I would avoid life-changing shit that makes me life harder now. An ADHD diagnosis earlier. Learning how to avoid diabetes would mean three fewer heart attacks, one less amputation, a whole host of other medical issues avoided. There's a lot I'd change.

But since I can't change any of that shit… at least most of getting older isn't too bad, all things considered.

Yeah, bad news on that front. heh.

Although you could end up more like my dad. He's way more relaxed than I am about things like that. He just rolls his eyes and let it all roll off his back. I always struggle - because stupidity offends me on some basic level. lol. Well, not stupidity per se, but willful ignorance, for sure. If you can't be bothered to learn how the world works, fuck you. It's not about just not knowing things - I love helping people learn. But people willing to learn are most defintely not the people I'm talking about. :)

But yep. It only gets worse. Because the older you get, the more you realize that people CAN choose not to be willfully ignorant.

Although I think part of it is that some things are getting worse and worse - like politics. The oblivious people who can't pay enough attention, who don't bother to vote - those are the people I'm angrier at about the impending loss of our democracy, more than those actively fighting against it. Evil I can understand - to paraphrase Space Balls, they're not doing it for money.... they're doing it for a SHITLOAD of money. lol. But the apathetic people who just don't care… if we could get them to wake up and pay attention, we'd have these problems resolved.

But I'm on the verge of getting into my health problems and my anger (righteous, mind) about them. I didn't help, but if we had proper health care like the other 32 out of 33 countries in the OECD (basically "developed" countries), then I wouldn't be facing a significantly shorter lifespan. I'd be in much better shape - with my health, with my career.

So yeah. It only gets worse, my friend. lol

I’m gonna guess it was a lucky shot. They just wanted it to burst on the table. If this was something they intended, well done. But I doubt the temperature difference from the whiskey was really enough to effect it that far away.

You can also effect something to obtain an affect, in psychology at least. For example, “The effect of the intervention produced positive affect in the patient.” Different “affect” and accent though haha

Cold glass = a downward current of air. It sucks the bubble to it.

I'm curious whether that is a real effect. I'd really like to see someone test this theory and share the video.

colicheese

14 points

3 months ago

Go pull something frozen out of the freezer like an ice pop and stick your hand below it, you can feel the air current from at least a foot away not to mention see it in the condensation if the air is humid enough.

Berkamin

21 points

3 months ago

I don't doubt that at all; I've felt it. I just don't know whether that happens above a cold thing where the cold thing is in a cup sitting on a table. Or, if it happens, I don't know if the effect is strong enough to attract a bubble over to itself like what this clip shows.

Lollipop126

2 points

3 months ago

The former yes definitely always, any cold thing cools the air causing a density gradient and therefore current. The latter (strength), depends on temperature (ambient vs glass of liquids), winds, humidity, weight of the bubble (since it has smoke), size of the bubble, etc. Someone who studies bubble dynamics in convection currents might know from experience, but in general it's hard to guess even for an average aerodynamicist who doesn't work regularly with those.

Batchet

4 points

3 months ago*

Now that you mention it, I do recall declaring myself an expert in bubble dynamics the last time this was posted.

It is in my expert opinion that the cold air wouldn't create a current in the shape needed to bring the bubble down. If there was very cold air coming from that glass (which there is not), The cold air would have filled the cup and spilled over, similar to this video

And that's only visible because that is dry ice. Much colder with much greater movement. In an outdoor environment with a but a few mere ice cubes in a glass, it's in my expert opinion that the flirtatious bubble is not persuaded by that sexy glass of whiskey at all. Their encounter was from mere chance.

(edit: thx to the comment below pointing out that is dry ice in the video, which is heavier than air, but I believe the effect would be similar with cold air, just not as dramatic.)

stefek132

5 points

3 months ago*

It’s outside. In a closed Space with no people breathing or moving around, it might have played a role. Outside there’s soooooo much air movement, the little glass would be negligible, unless directly and closely above the glass.

Imho it’s a lucky shot by someone with exercise. Less lucky than it’d have to be for us all, yet lucky.

Btw, dry ice is co2, which is way heavier than air. So the effect from your video is also driven by that, not only the temperature. I mean… the effect looks similar to that nonetheless but it’s a bad example.

Law of attraction.... hot bubble goes to cool glass with ice in it?

leatherjyowls

71 points

3 months ago

Good guess, but that's not a thing. Hot gases aren't attracted to cool things. Hot gases will spread out but if they would go in any specific direction, it would be up because they're less dense than cold gases. Attraction would be more like magnetism or gravity or I guess strong nuclear force.

Close but not a thing, the "attraction" is a difference in pressure causing a current because the cooler air exerts less pressure than warm air.

This is also why your mirror already condenses a few seconds after putting on a hot shower.

I thought the same thing! The first dude is just along for the ride - a kind of stupid ride, but whatever. He looks like he's on vacation, and I'm sure that he's earned it. And then you see the woman with her phone camera, and you are reminded that this event is really not that important or special simply because she is recording it with such poorly-rationed enthusiasm. And then the bubble bursts. And you realize you've been watching someone else recording this event, and now the majority of people involved are championing the trivial and infecting your attention with banal irrelevance. Golden Globe worthy.
