I'm pretty sure that none of those are your hobbies.

When will I learn?

According to the Brits, people who drink between 5 and 14 glasses of wine or liquor ("units") per week were 10-17% less likely to get Covid compared to those who drank more or less.

However, beer and cider actually increase your chances of getting the Cov by as much as 28%.

Study shows relationship between drinking wine and contracting COVID-19 (msn.com)

Pretty excited about that news as I can definitely stay within the sweet spot.

Good thing I drink Bud light then, I'm safe!:roflmao:

That's exactly what I thought about that old saying of find something you love then you never regret going to work, nonsense. As soon as you put time and a price tag on it it starts to suck. Then add 30 0r 40 years..
I loved being a Carpenter most days until everything became so effing blood thirsty.

Hey! They don't like that term. They prefer "little people"

I loved carpentry too. I got out just as compressors were coming in. Timing.

Post #3651 was about his hobby/career. Sharpen your context skills.

Did a really hard ride today. I think it was probably the hardest I have ever gone on a bike. It felt good, but at times I thought I was going to be sick. The guy I was with is a beast. BTW I did this with only 1 hour of sleep.
Something I noticed, I felt like I was shifting my hips alot while pedaling, vs what he looked like. Not sure if thatís because of how much effort I was putting into it or the fatigue or a fit issue.

This is why I think, "Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life" is such unadulterated horses**t.

Shifting as in moving around the saddle trying to get in the right position? Or shifting as in rocking?

I could use one, too, but I've been too lazy to take the tyre off.

Yep. Full field pic. They do it this way (I'm certain you know this, but others may not) because it's inevitable that some honyocker tries to win a 24 hour race in the first minute. The chatter is: It's going to be cold and wet.

As I sat at my computer, analyzing sequencing data using a program somebody else wrote, using command line, trying to remember the commands, the defaults, and the arguments, and type them in correctly, it occurred to me that 40 years ago, I arrived in California and started working for Genentech - analyzing sequencing data using a program somebody else wrote, using command line, trying to remember the commands, the defaults, and the arguments.

Maybe if you'd done a better job they would have figured it out by now.

I kid, maybe.

Yeah, 24 year old me could not have dreamed of doing what 64 year old me can do.

Shifting around is a sign of uncomfortability, but that doesnt mean your fit is bad or anything is wrong. When we go all out or even beyond, its normal to shift forward. You are familiar with the term , "on the rivet"?
I know when I am riding out of my class I have felt that way, not like something is wrong but more like something isn't right. I think it's just how our physicality *****es about being asked to do something that hard for an extended length of time. As far as feeling sick, you are doing it correct. I get that quite often under hard efforts. I have actually thrown up twice that I can recall on the bike because of it. I had just eaten and the ride leader decided it was breakaway time. I felt better afterwards, but never caught back up.

Sleep is overrated. There will be plenty of time for that when you are dead.

When I was a runner, I trained at what I called the JAV threshold- just about vomiting. I would puke at the end of races all of the time.
