I have this problem that is making me feel depressed, long story short, when I was born for a moment I was asphyxiated with the umbilical cord during childbirth, most likely due to being a large baby (and also thanks to Latin American doctors) and because of that I have brain damage and ADHD, I never had adequate treatment because the psychologists and neurologists of my country are only Jews who simply wanted money and never did any kind of exam and I did not know about this until I was 17. (And I got into a shitty treatment with ADHD pills like concerta and ritalin, that didn’t work)

I don’t know if I’m going to be like this forever or that is even a chance to recover, honestly I don’t even have the will to live and I can’t even concentrate.

I'm a HS science teacher and this module we are talking about diet and metabolism, including eating disorders. Last year some smartass kid tried correcting one of my exam questions. My example was an anorexic girl who weighed 85 pounds - calculate her todal daily energy expenditure. Well the kid said that the anorexic girl would have a lower TDEE because of a slowed metablism and that whatever equation I was teaching them was wrong. The whole class laughed at me and all the girls who used to flirt with me shunned me thereafter.
So I'm trying to avoid the same mistake this year.
Can anyone help scientifically and mathematically model the TDEE of an anorexic woman?

>> No.12633674

He is right. There are special formulas for things such as malnutrition, fever, cancer and other pathologies. However most people don't give a shit about them and use the general TDEE formula which was designed for normal people, and it tends to work in the end because in medicine nobody can be assed to know every single detailed shit. The special cases would be the work of a nutriologist, so if you really want them go look a book on Nutriology.

How do acidity changes cause damage in the body, on a molecular level? If I separate NaCl ions through electrophoresis and injected chloride in a patient, would the pH decrease by the presence of the new ions alone? Do the protons and hydroxiles themselves interact with molecules and cause damage? How does getting rid of CO2 or bicarbonate prevent damage?

I am very aware of kidney and lung physiology, i'm aware that the goal is to keep the pH steady, I know proteins denature and shit, but how does this happen and what exactly causes it?

>> No.12633620

>>12633608
Essentially, which is the thing that damages here? I know that CO2 represents exiting carbonic acid, I know that carbonic acid represents the presence of a proton and I know the proton represents the presence of an acid. But which one is the one that interacts with the molecules here, the protons or the mysterious acid? Likewise, the bicarbonate represents the presence of a base that causes lack of protons, but when the bicarbonate exits through the kidney, the base is still inside the body isn't it? How does it help, where does the proton come from, or the acid it represents?

You don’t know how productive it is, because there is only one timeline so comparison is impossible. But any time something is ridiculed and does not happen, suppose it might have happened otherwise. Also consider things you might do but don’t out of fear of ridicule.
PC culture has banned mocking certain people and now 17 year old boys wearing skirts can use the same bathrooms as 12 year old girls.
Also mocking nasal swabs for covid didn’t happen and now there are anal swabs for covid.

No one uses Dyson spheres as an argument for searching life, though

Buuuuuut we can use the fact that we haven't found any radio cloud as a supporting argument that there are no advanced enough intelligent life in our horizon.

Earth has 200 light years of radiosignals
If aliens exists, and advanced enough, they should have something similar and in bigger range that would stick out like a sore thumb as it react with cosmic radiation

Since you can't perceive your own death, then you can't perceive the end of your own subjective experience. Doesn't that mean that from your subjective point of view you'll never die and continue to exist somehow, while being dead to others?

The theory is as follows:

- If time is infinite, doesn't that technically mean that odds are also infinite?
For example, if something happens once, and time is infinitely long,
wouldn't that suggest that whatever happened is bound to happen again? Because the odds are infinite.

- Moving on-to the second part of the theory, if the odds of something are infinite,
doesn't that mean that whatever has already happened,
has a 100% chance of happening again at some point in the infinite future?

- Now, the third part of the theory. The fact that we're all alive, conscious, breathing,
thinking, means we now know for a fact that the odds of being alive are ATLEAST 1.
Each one of us are living proof of this fact. So, back to the theory of infinite time.
If time is infinite, and the odds of something that has already happened
happening again in the infinity plane of time are 100:0, doesn't that technically mean that
we are bound to live again? Be it a different body, consciousness, soul, whatever you'd like to call it.
But you'd still feel alive, no? You most likely wouldn't recognise your previous life of course, because it isn't technically "you" anymore,
but perhaps it was once?

This ties in with death. So, as you all are aware before you were born, billions of years passed.
The same will happen after we all die, too. I ask myself the question, why now? Why was I born now?
I get that there most definitely isn't a specific reason as to why I was born now,
but I can't fathom how time has passed before, and will pass after I'm gone.

I understand this may sound literally insane to many people, which is fair enough,
because it does; but I'm eager to learn about it and would love some thoughts on it.
