  1. Hi, I can't find much information about concentrated hydrochloric acid and the uses for it. I find much information about regular hydrochloric acid, for exemaple that it is used to regulare pH in stuff and are additives in food. Can you plz give me some examples of what concentrated hydrochloric acid is used for and how it differs from regular hydrochloric acid.
  2. Hi, I have read (on multiple places, including watching YouTube) that your body can't consume more than about 30-35 grams of protein per meal (or protein shake). I wonder how long it takes for it to restart and the body can absorb that amount again (how many minutes or hours?). I also wonder what determines when you consume more than the body can handle per meal (or protein shake) if the protein gets converted to fat or just go in the toilet. I have heard that both of this happens.
  3. Hi, I wonder if it's true that it's better to have your heart rate at about 70% of your max heart rate to burn fat?(https://www.healthline.com/health/fitness-exercise/fat-burning-heart-rate; ) I have heard that if you workout at your maximum heart rate the body will use stored glucose in your muscles (collagen) which can be bad if you want to build muscle. I don't care specifically about burning fat, just burn calories so less calories will be stored as fat, but I don't want stored glucose in my muscles to be used as the energy.
  4. Hi, I have a question about opioids. When you are running for a long period of time the body produces endorphines. Here is a quote from a webiste (https://guenergy.com/blogs/nutrition-lab/runner-s-high-is-it-really-all-endorphins: "Scientists found that running for prolonged periods increased levels of β-endorphins in the body’s circulation. This increase was correlated with increased reports of positive mood changes. The correlation led researchers to conclude that β-endorphins produce the runner’s high." The website says that beta-endorphines is increased in the body. This webiste (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8780) says that beta-endorphines are 18-33 more potent than morphine. That would mean that it is also much more potent than heroin? Could that really be right? You couldn't get more high on running than if you took heroin, right? So what do they mean when they say that beta-endophines can be 18-33 times more potent than morphine?
  5. Hi I know how magneto ignition works, like how it can create the electricity and the high voltage, but what I don't know is how it can control so that it happens fast in pulses. Can someone plz explain to me how this works? https://science.howstuffworks.com/question375.htm
  6. I understand, but I've heard that you can turn sleep paralysis to lucid dreams because you tend to hallucinate during them.
  7. How do you get those sleep paralysis? Do you just go to sleep normaly and that happens sometimes by itself? How did you get sleep paralysis last time? Did you try or did it happen by itself?
  8. Well then the music will stop, cause I don't have YouTube Premium and I haven't rooted my phone.
  9. That's good, but where do you find these. If there are on YouTube I need to have my screen on while listening.
  10. That's a good idea. I have never tried that before. Thx for the answer. That's a good idea. I have a watch that can track my sleep. I might try that. Thx for the answer.
  11. You mean to try one day to not do anything related to lucid dreaming and see if that will give results?
  12. That's funny, but let's keep it to the subject plz. I really want useful tips.
  13. I had just watched a movie about lucid dreaming and told my self the day before "I'm going to be lucid in my next dream". I still tell myself that (MILD technique), but it haven't worked since that. I have to do reality checks now instead and I tell my self now "I'm going to to a reality check in my next dream" everyday instead.
  14. The first time that I had lucid dreams, I also just recognized that I was dreaming. So you don't do any reality checks? How often are you lucid and what technique do you use, or does it just happen to you without you trying?
  15. Thx for the answer , but I don't understand. You are right, I didn't discuss anything about neuroscience. I shouldn't have said that, I just wanted to make clear that this is a complicated topic that require knowledge about how dreams works, which have to do with neuroscience and the unconscious mind. Well, to do those things you have to know that you are dreaming, hence doing the reality checks. Just watch some lucid dreamers on YouTube and EVERYONE will recommend doing reality checks. Some of them even say you should do it as often as 25-30 (or even more) times a day. I do it about 15 times a day. I have tried flying in one of my lucid dreams, it was really fun Yeah you have a large amount of control when you are lucid, because you know that it is a dream and you can do almost what ever you want to do. What do you mean I don't want my tests to work? Why would I otherwise start this topic in the first place? Do you mean that I unconsciously don't want them to work? If so, in what way could that be? That's a good idea, thank you. I will try that. So I could use the flashlight on my phone for instance?
  16. I know what a lucid dream is. What I wonder is how and why my reality checks won't work which would otherwise acknowledge me that I'm dreaming so that it would be a lucid dream.
  17. Yes, it is to know if you're dreaming or not. No, lucid dreaming feels just like, or very much like reality. The part in the brain responsible for logical thinking doesn't work so good often while dreaming. It's not that simple. It's not about mistaken reality for a dream, it's the reverse. Plz learn more about the subject before answering. This topic is about neuroscience as well.
  18. Hi, I started lucid dreaming a few months ago. I got my first 3 lucid dreams on 1 night without using reality checks, but then I started to do it. The first time I tried it I tried to push my finger through my palm in my dream, which DIDN'T work, right after that I pinched my nose and tried to breathe, which DID work so I became lucid. This month I have done 5 reality checks in total in my dreams and it didn't work anytime :(. When I'm awake and do my reality checks I do it in this order: Looking around and see if I can see anything unusual. Looking at the time 3 times and see if it changes. Try to do telekinesis. Pinch my nose and try to breathe 3 times. I always expect that I'm going to be able to breathe. Then I think about what I have done today, what I'm doing right now and what I will do later. In my dreams, the only thing I will do is pinch my nose and try to breathe which don't work now for some reason. I don't do the other things and I don't know why. What could I do to make my reality checks work? Should I do my reality checks in another way, or do something additional? Am I doing anything wrong?
  19. These articles are to complex for me to understand, could you plz explain a bit on a more basic level how one can have higher resting metabolic rate than someone else that have the same mass, etc. How does one inherit metabolic rate? What common genes are involved that affect this?
  20. Hi, I know that some people have higher metabolic rate than others aside from exercising and diet. Genes play an important role and I would like to know what genes and how those genes affect the metabolic rate. I haven't find so much when I searched for it.
  21. Hi, In the winter the air is dryer so there is less water in the air. I wonder how water can keep the skin on hands from getting dry and crack.
  22. Hi, I know that it is dangerous to inhale mercury, but I wonder why? What happens on atomic level when the mercury vapor gets in the different organs?
