    Roommate Issues

    Absolutely. If I don't like what he's doing then he shouldn't do it. The same goes for me. If the correct philosophy was... You can do whatever you want whenever you want regardless of what your roommate wants ...then I could throw a party in the room at 3 in the morning while he's...

    Roommate Issues

    I know this may sound kind of weird but I strongly believe that I should be able to do whatever I want whenever I want in my room. It's my room. People tell me that nobody gets what they want all the time. While that is true, when I'm in my room it's not. For example in high school when I...

    Laws About Living With Someone Else In America

    So back in my parents house if I had a friend over that my parents did not want over they could ask the person to leave. If the person didn't leave it would trespassing (despite me wanting my friend over). Yes? So how does the whole situation work out when you share a space with someone...

    If money won't make you happy

    I Can't Study in My Room

    Well apparently I was wrong lol. The highest NRR recognized by OSHA is 33. Wearing ear muffs on top of ear plugs only adds between 4 and 8 db in noise reduction which is actually a significant increase. I bought some NRR 33 ear plugs and some NRR 33 ear muffs off Amazon. They'll be coming in...

    I Can't Study in My Room

    Ya but I don't know if it would reduce more noise than just wearing 33 NRR ear muffs over 33 NRR earplugs. Do you think they would? I'm not so sure. I can't find any noise reduction ratings on those things.

    I Can't Study in My Room

    Wait so you can get a NRR of better than 33 by using quite headphones. Hm... what is quite headphones? Do you think those would block more noise? I'm not so sure if they are better in passive headphones. I don't care to listen to music as I want the chepest possible but if I can get better...

    I Can't Study in My Room

    Ok so I did some research and apparently noise reduction is measured on a NRR (noise reduction scale) that all noise reduction devices are measured on. The highest NRR rating recognized by OSHA is 33 which reduces noise by about 118 db. Wearing ear plugs on top of ear muffs reduces noise by...

    Why do you do what you do?

    Actions completed by people are done for reasons, weather or not we are aware of the reason at the particular point of time an action is completed is debatable. If you are watching T.V., studying, spending time with your family, whatever it is there is a reason behind it. Perhaps you watch...

    What's the point?

    Hi, My university requires undergraduates to take completely major unrelated courses to develop well roundness, whatever. I decided to take a couple of Anthropology courses, in the hopes that I would have a better understanding of why people do what they do. I have now developed some vague...

    Roommate Issue Who's To Blame

    hm I'm not exactly sure... but ya i guess your right it's better that we switched because I don't think either of us were going to change our ways. And ya I think you may be right I may have just been a escape goat. He reported me because he said he couldn't sleep at night, although he told me...
