What are some great "When I was your age" statements? by Abhishek Tr

Answer by Abhishek Tr:

Beautiful question. Takes me back in time. Zaaap.

  • Few months ago I caught my 14 year old cousin watching porn. When I was your age, I was caught watching fashion TV.
  • The other day I met someone who has been in a relationship since age 12. When I was your age, I dreaded the “I'll make you sit in between the girls” punishment at school.
  • My 10 year old cousin was fighting with his dad for a new mobile phone. When I was your age, I used to fight for extra cartoon time.
  • My 12 year old neighbour says that his inspiration is Elon Musk. When I was your age, my inspiration was Spiderman.
  • He has already planned to pursue engineering from an IIT and a PG from an Ivy league college. When I was your age, I was planning to pass the midterm exams.
  • One of my 13 year old online friend says that she can bake a cake, cook hundreds of delicacies and is planning to set up a bakery. When I was your age, I used to dream about that 5′o clock samosa after school.
  • My distant relative was complaining that her son never leaves his room and is obsessed with his laptop. When I was your age, my mom complained that I never came home because of that stupid street cricket.
  • Kids these days are busy collecting online coins, building forts and breaking records. When I was your age, I used to collect Pokemon cards, WWE figures and Dragon Booster models.
  • My friend’s friend was bragging that he had a physical relationship at the age of 16. When I was your age, I gently skipped the Human Physiology lesson because it was too much for me.
  • One of the youngest writers here on Quora, knows languages like python, Java and C++ at the age of 13. When I was your age, I was struggling to learn one language. English.
  • The other evening I was attending a 10 year old’s birthday party. They gifted him a PS4. When I was your age I was gifted a Lion King Jigsaw puzzle set.
  • My sister’s daughter was whining that her Facebook Dp didn't fetch enough likes. When I was your age, I used to whine about not buying enough candies for my birthday.
  • My brother’s daughter watches all her favourite shows on Netflix, YouTube and Hotstar. When I was your age I used to wait till 4.30 pm to watch Power Rangers and Scooby-Doo at 5 pm.
  • Kids these days are crazy about Domino's, McD and KFC. When I was your age I was crazy about the roadside Bhajji stall.
  • Kids these days are in love with Kardashians, Emma Watson and Jessica Alba. When I was your age I was in love with Powerpuff girls.

That's it for today.

Sayonara.

What are some things that mechanical engineers know and others don’t?

What are some things that mechanical engineers know and others don't? by Mohan Dev Sukumar

Answer by Mohan Dev Sukumar:

Aircraft travel at 40,000 feet above sea level, and the temperature of air at that height is -60 degree centigrade, pretty cold air. Aircraft's turbine blades which are near the combustion chamber become very hot. A coolant is a must to cool these blades.

What is your proposal for coolant? Cold air right? Sadly no.

Instead of going for the cold air readily available in the atmosphere, engineers prefer compressed hot air at a temperature of 900 Kelvin for cooling these blades. Very "hot" air is used as "coolant," weird right?

The problem with the cold air is that it can't provide necessary pressure for circulation and thus can't be used as coolant. I guess only mechanical and aerospace engineers know about that.

Edit: go through the comment section for further discussion.

Do Secret Service agents get bored?

Do Secret Service agents get bored? by @jasonwells00USA

Answer by Jason Wells:

There is a scene from the film “The Count of Monte Cristo” where two men are imprisoned in the notorious Chateau D’if and are talking about their captivity. The younger man, Edmund Dantes, tells his friend: “I have seventy-two thousand, five-hundred, nineteen stones in my walls. I’ve counted them many times.”

Dante’s friend, the much, much older Abbe Faria, responds “But have you named them yet?”

That’s sort of what being a Secret Service agent is like most of the time. Yes, agents get very, very bored.

I have stood in hallways counting the pinhole dots in ceiling tiles. I have had staring contests with pieces of artwork hanging in hotel lobbies… and won…. I have memorized the labels on every fire extinguisher, soda machine, and Exit sign (not much to memorize there). The symmetry of a hall doesn’t really have meaning until you stand in it and stare it down for ten straight hours.

Did you know that hotels turn off their air conditioning in their hallways in the middle of the night? Most people don’t notice because they’re asleep in their rooms. It becomes much more obvious when you’re wearing a suit and carrying about 40 pounds of equipment on your belt.

It’s expected that agents keep a vigilant watch and maintain a strict protective environment all the time, and most agents are able to do this. But even the most observant and dedicated person needs stimulation. And usually the protection life doesn’t offer much to satisfy the need. So yes, agents get bored.

And the follow up question: How do agents deal with boredom? They suck it up. They start counting stones, and then they start naming them.
