How long could you survive in the vacuum of space?


That's long enough to think over some things

Eff ing? Isn't it a bless ing?

In the first 30 seconds any fluid on the surface of your body would begin to boil due to lack of ambient pressure, this includes the saliva on your tongue and the moisture in your eyes. Your eardrums would most likely burst due to the pressure in your body trying to equalize with the vacuum outside. Unlike what some science fiction films have suggested, your body would not explode.

After the first 15 seconds you would lose consciousness. If you held your breath you could potentially stay alive longer but you risk pulmonary trauma. If you didn't hold your breath you'd pass out sooner, but your lungs might have a better chance of avoiding permanent damage.

The pressure in your veins would rise until your heart no longer had the capacity to pump blood, at which point you'd die.
These are not exactly the kind of moments I long to savour...

Asthma a blessing? Umm...sure, if you find breathing a troublesome bore. :o

..which leads nicely to the supplemental ¿question of the day?(optional):

currently outsurviving everyone else in the vacuum of space with his 1min 53 seconds eternity is none other than la marquise de bales


what could be the secret of his success?

^^^ here's another asthma-er-- i'd say it's a blessing to suffocate before my blood starts to boil, oh yes indeed :)

He might - mistakenly - believe: the longer, the better. ;)

I heard that you need to hyperventilate beforehand to oxygenate your blood, and close your eyes - that "helps."
I'm assuming that these are the horrific moments you are taking in order to keep the rest of the crew from perishing under fire from an alien attack as you struggle to get the jammed shield up. The reason you don't have a space suit to begin with might have something to do with Marcus Bales and a deal he struck with the Vorg, who betray him ultimately.
What this does not address, however, is the excruciating pain of burning where the sun's rays hit your body on one side, and instantly freezing on the other.

Just as a reminder, that's actually long enough to go:

"AUUGH!!!!"

"AAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!"


"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG GHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ****ING AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGG GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGMOMMYHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

Then you'd still have about a minute. Consciousness optional.

¿question of the day? for Saturday June 14th, 2008

What, if any, is your compulsion, and how do you control it, if at all?



==================================================

Mine is bargain hunting, i have to hunt for bargains...can't control that part, but fortunately I can control whether I buy stuff or not, or I'd be broke from all the money I saved.

T.I.P. 06-14-2008 05:29 PM

i like to tidy things up
put them in order
line them up
stack them

I never try to repress this compulsion. Luckily it only happens to me once in a while. I just go with the urge until I get it out of my system, and then I can be normal again. Sort of.

YsaPur EsChomuw 06-14-2008 11:33 PM

If I see nice/strange/interesting/unusual/etc pictures in a magazine I cut them out and file them according to topic for unknown purposes.

Well, I do use them sometimes as teaching aids, about 2% of them.

Also, sometimes I don't file them, so I have several piles of pictures hidden at various places in my room.

I don't resist the urge to cut out pics, but I feel a bit guilty of having piles of them at unknown places I've forgotten about.

Bman 06-14-2008 11:57 PM

To rehearse my arguments for leaving you at the train station.

Oh, and being unnecessarily cryptic. Especially on this board. Sorry.

I usually control it by asking an old question and answering a new one.

brightpearl 06-15-2008 01:22 AM

I compulsively put a lot of effort into avoiding contact with other people's compulsions.

trisherina 06-15-2008 02:51 AM

This is not one I have the insight to answer just now.

lukkucairi 06-15-2008 04:59 AM

nuh-uh :p

I keep my obsessions out of other people's faces, as far as I'm able - mostly to be polite - though I recently had a hard lesson in being honest with myself :o

I just recently found the owner's manual to my brain, and I've been reinstalling the OS. this may take a few years. check back later.

ps
I'm not proud of this.
But I'm told I've earned it honestly.

Father's Day Question of the Day: So, how's your father?

trisherina 06-15-2008 12:08 PM

He's got metastatic prostate cancer, but believe it or not, the prognosis is so good (and the treatment so effective) that none of us are particularly worried about it anymore.

He didn't really much like parenting when we were little and teens; I'm not sure having three children was his choice at all -- having children other than by choice being a pretty foreign concept these days, it's useful to speculate regarding what that might be like. He relates much better to adults.

lukkucairi 06-15-2008 01:20 PM

Dead as of May 2004 :(

It's OK - he had Lewy Body Dementia and multiple organ failure - it was time. I still have a tupperware container of his ashes in my office closet. So in specific answer to the question? Dry and dusty :p I keep thinking of that Monty Python sketch where they have Marilyn Monroe's ashes starring in a film as the contents of a burst vacuum cleaner bag :p

Trish, glad to hear your dad has a good prognosis :)

Died 15 years ago, I still miss him.

brightpearl 06-15-2008 04:17 PM

The only thing wrong with my dad is that he doesn't know how lucky I am to have him.

Coffee 06-15-2008 05:46 PM

Dad's ok, enjoying retirement. Netflix's best customer. Also shopping channel's best customer...:rolleyes: he got the "buy everything" compulsion that skipped me...:p

T.I.P. 06-15-2008 10:26 PM

My Dad has adapted to the french way of life, embraced it even, and he is no longer spiteful about living far away from his homeland. Sometimes I can see a sadness about him, but when I look hard enough I see that same sadness in everyone. He is actually doing really well, and I am thankful for that.
