    I actually already have a Roomba though it's a couple of years old and not been used for quite some time because I just have to many carpets and obstacles in general for it to be efficient. I'm looking for an easy quick swipe in certain areas often that can also be used for more thorough cleaning when needed.

    Informative, thanks! I don't know if it's a problem yet but I'm keeping an eye on it and we'll see after the next dentist appointment I guess.

    I feel like poor people are going against their own well-being by voting or supporting right wing politicians but they are so sure about their beliefs that sometimes I question myself.

    This is the greatest achievement of them all. If you can convince people that they're better off worse than now then you've won. The paralyzing pure disbelief from the unconvinced and other side of the spectrum will be enough to fuel the irrational thoughts even more. It's a perfect plan until we learn to look past it and focus on the glass floor they're standing on isn't as thick as they say. Every shout, every provoking headline, every thing these people are trying to do or say is a ploy to make you loose yourself in your emotions and fear. Next time you feel that emotion coming take a deep breath on look past the source and through the smokescreen. Laugh.

    Damn, since 3rd grade...that's tough. You know what I actually have an ab wheel so I think I'll just start there for now. My core is not strong and I only play football once a week so it's almost from scratch I'm afraid. I'm generally OK healthy but I need to work out.

    Well, color me intrigued. Thanks! This sound really interesting because after I made the other comment I thought to my self that my real problem is actually I don't know what my goal is or what my ideal settings would be. I don't just need a program I need advice before and as I go along so I optimize the chance of continuing the training.

    One question though. How's the transparency when it comes to handling my data because it seems like it can collect quite a lot on many levels?

    What sets this apart from other apps? Just curious because I'm almost giving up beforehand because the market it so saturated with fitness apps.

    I've started some form of fasting and I only drink black coffee until I eat around 12-13ish. I eat again in the evening and have tried to cut out all snacks after that. This is in the weekdays and in the weekends I just eat and drink what I want. This works for me and I have lost a couple of kilos in the process. I'm not overweight so the most important for me now is getting some exercise beside the football once a week. I REALLY need to strengthen my core for my back problems but it has to be done at home because I've realized that going to the gym just isn't for me right now. I've done it but it's just so fucking boring and I just can't wait till it's over every time. Small exercises at home often is where I wanna start. I've been thinking about kettle bells might be a good place to start. Any experiences with kettle bells and back problems?

    It's funny you should say that because IMO it's only in the last three albums Insomnium have been able to do this. Their older albums while great are almost unlistenable to me and hurts my ears...

    Good quality metal is something that's hard to find(production/mix quality, not "go completely over the top with a full orchestra); so far the best ones l've found that l like are Insomnium and Moonsorrow, which both have stellar production quality.

    It's funny you should say that because IMO it's only in the last three albums Insomnium have been able to do this. Their older albums while great are almost unlistenable to me and hurts my ears after a few minutes. I gotta give Moonsorrow a listen again now that I've seen quite a few people recommending them.

    For me it come down to this. If I have to spend $250 on a pair of headphones not matter what type AirPods would be the last I would choose. Considering sound, comfort and Apples arrogance in pricing. I have an iPhone and a Macbook but I doubt I will ever pay for anything sound related from Apple.
