Ed-vise Episode 121

A post barn burner of a workout last night GOOD MORNING!!! to you all. Apparently there was a bit of a something that broke up across the night sky last night. Wife saw something! More to follow

Today’s bit o trivia: The Bends. No, not a yoga pose. Nor is this related to any type of gymnastics unless it is done in a pressurized environment. See, we humans are the cause of our own problems. And this is one of them. The Bends comes from expansion of oxygen in the blood. Normally, at a standard atmosphere, oxygen goes into and out of the blood stream. No problem because the molecule is relatively small. When you put pressure on the molecule it gets smaller. When that smaller molecule goes into the blood stream, you have a small molecule in your blood stream. The pressure comes from moving closer to the earth’s core like in diving or digging deep. When you come up from those pressures (depths) the oxygen expands in your blood stream and, VOILA! You’re bent. Good times.


Free For All Friday Ed-vise today. Man am I a bit smoked still carrying last nights workout so forgive the randomness of thought and/or typos!

Did you ever challenge the ideas of a person with more credibility or experience than you? I’m wrestling with that now. And you know what? It’s OK.

The idea I am challenging has to do with a popular social worker/ professor and famous podcaster with a Ted Talk (one day I will do a Ted Talk). She has put forward an idea that I agree with in part and disagree with in part.

Her credentials and research are numerous and extensive in her field of study. She is highly respected based on her science and quality of research she has done. And, I disagree with her.

Understand that there is absolutely no law that says you cannot disagree with someone of higher education, social status, political affiliation, or anything else. Shoot, here in ‘Merica, you have the “right” to vocally disagree with the president. Even if you don’t have all the facts, you can still disagree.

So, in today’s ramblings, don’t have any fear about disagreeing. It’s OK to do and it’s something you used to do when you were 4! I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember if you name your bathroom “Jim” instead of “John” you can tell people you go to the Gym first thing in the morning. Think about it; you know I’m right.
