I have a confession... over the last year, #Impossible has become my weekday #lunchtime #guiltypleasure.... great show, Rick Edwards is a good host & the final round has (impossible) questions that catch me out every day...

Worth a watch if you've nothing on at lunchtime (which I accept if you're not #retired, may not be happening).

@lzvolk it seems to me that the goal here is to follow the “scientific process”. I would surmise that their initial goal would be to find a foundational measure that would basically be an average value for an average person.

It’s from that baseline that I would imagine that they would compare individual deviations from the norm, so that they might more specifically address a distinct problem

At least that’s how we would have done it in my former field

I also have my own projects - things that I've been wanting to do for a long time.

Expanding the tools in my garage, I has torque wrenches now, so after getting new tyres, I was able to check the nuts after a bit of driving around and just a couple were a bit under.

I kind of just want to make, fix, and maintain all the things now.

Car is good until I get new parts delivered and coated #SubieRumble, PC is going ok now after downgrading the GPU to exorcise the gremlins it had, 1 of my 3 3D printers needs some work on its frame, firmware, and an accelerometer tune, but it's the middle sized one, so that may take some time, not being essential and all.

I also need to give some love to my bikes and take them for a spin, but that needs motivation there's only been a few sporadic rides the last 10 years, and I'll be harshly reminded how unfit I am, and get sweaty and yicky and have to cleanup before having to take kids from A to B, so chances are slim.

I retired before I turned 50, so I returned to work in a Medical Facility (hospital) storing data/paying financial claims, & as a bonded carrier for secure deliveries on an Airforce base.
I also had my DJ business, in its heyday, I was looking to expand & hire, with 3 vans & 2 full sets of DJ gear to go on the road. The Taxman wanted all my money.

About then, my wife became disabled & our life plans had to be changed.

For 2023, the word that keeps coming to mind is 'Free'. As an older woman, who recently retired and moved cross-country, I'm building a new life.

Free to:
-Explore what I love doing. It's not always what I thought it would be!
-Make friends. My circle had become very small to nonexistent.
-Say no. Let go of 'shoulds.'
-Say yes. Embrace new experiences.
-Jump in the car and wander.
The list goes on but I'm out of space here.

What does 'Free' mean to you?
