Hey guys! People call me Ero. I'm from Turkey and I'm an astronautical engineer for 6 months. I like watching series. I like to listen vaporwave synthwave musics. Nowadays I'm trying to learn how to produce music on FL Studio.
Hi everybody! (hi dr nick) here to try something new. For a living I help run a university campus network, with a focus on WiFi. For fun it's walking, photography, drums and live sound. Based in the north of England / Northern Ireland, I'm interested in politics and utterly fed up with politicians. I'm a faltering follower of Christ but can't call myself Christian. Always happy to engage/argue/discuss with those I don't agree with in a respectful manner.
Cheers all #introductions #introduction
Long Thing about Fridays.
Oh boy, my weekend is about to start....
But, I didn't tell you guys, yet, about the oddity of Friday Morning in Tel Aviv.
On Thursday night things start to get calmer. By the time Friday morning has come, the whole city feels quieter and lazier as it prepares for Saturday.
As some of you may be aware, Saturday is the Jewish Sabbath. In traditional Jewish time keeping a day is sunset to sunset. At sunset the new day begins (Which is why Jewish Holidays all seem to start the 'day before' the official holiday).
I live near a fairly busy intersection- certainly not the busiest in Tel Aviv, but it's right down the street from the Central Bus Station. Friday morning sees fewer buses. They relax the schedule, since traditionally people have Friday off in the Israeli work week. Your standard '9-5' would work from Sunday to Thursday.
Friday, though. It's like the whole city relaxes. Breathes out, prepares for Saturday. The whole city feels different. You have to experience it, at least once. Imagine if New York or London had like 1/3rd the traffic heading down one of their busy streets, just because it was Friday.
No buses run on Saturday. The garbage man goes by, but that's the heaviest vehicle that zips by my apartment window that faces the street. There are a lot fewer vehicles.
And my entire body is used to it. I sleep deeper on Fridays.
It really is a magical experience. I hope you all get to check it out sometime.
Good night everyone. If anyone on #QOTO needs anything please reach out to another moderator. Until tomorrow).
(PS: I'm uber excited cause I was told my new bike would arrive tomorrow, picture included)

The guide contains the more approachable composers, modern classical music in film OSTs, and other stuff.
Randomly came across this video abt Japanese archery "Kyudo". It's pretty engrossing and touches on both the science and art of the sport. For example: Japanese bows are much longer and held about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom. There's also an 8-step form for firing the arrow.
@n i’ve discovered the wonders of weight lifting shoes. but other than that, core training helps a lot too at least for me.
