I just got this really simple ass question for you today although it is not about asses, nor is it about butts.
Well anyway I'm living in an attic right now. Yes it's my mothers. The only way to get power to it is to run a wire down and plug it into the mains socket on the landing which then powers the couple of sockets and lights that are actually in the loft. The main problem with this is that if you want to turn the lights off you have to climb down the ladder and flip a switch, which is lame cause you know you gotta put pants on and shit, who wants to deal with that? It also unpowers the sockets too so you can't charge your appendages, but you're a smart person who already worked that out.
SOOOO my question is can I just unscrew the bulbs without burning down my moms house? I think so, right? Cause if there's no bulb there's no complete circuit but I don't know whether or not since the wire is still powered it might overheat? I just don't know, man. Kettles work on the principle that I'm afraid of. My mom works really quite hard at the hospital to pay her mortgage I would really feel like a dickhead if I set this thing on fire and it's all like wooden beams up here so yeah.
Sorry for the long winded post, I guess I should address a few things before the thread proceeds. 1 yes I know I'm a pleb, in every way, thanks. 2 I already went to google, for real, and 3 there were only really two main things that needed to be addressed so, happy slappy posting.

is it worth going to uni if you are 24?
i have made a modest living from doing audio engineering work (studio work, some live stuff, occasionally a bit of film post-production), but it's sporadic at best and i have begun to hate it (the people, the projects, basically everything). i don't feel like i am achieving anything and in all honesty unless you're the 1% type deal who end up breaking through and working with the cream of the crop, you're a piece of shit. there is no way i will ever be able to buy assets the way i am currently working and i am being forced to take a sobering look at myself and my skill set, only to discover i am actually pretty useless.
when i was younger my father paid for me to go to a school and get a BA focusing on that kind of work, but it was retarded easy and extremely unsatisfying. i learnt basically nothing and i am surprised i did not call it quits earlier, which i would have were it not for me getting everything paid for.
thinking of going into another field. how did you guys choose what you went on to do? did you just know what you wanted to be from your childhood or did you find your way as you picked up papers? was it the money?
i want to know what makes you tick and what drives you to study hard and go for the careers i always thought were not for me.

The Hydrogen Clouds of M33
Image Credit & Copyright: Adam Block, Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter, U. Arizona
Gorgeous spiral galaxy M33 seems to have more than its fair share of glowing hydrogen gas. A prominent member of the local group of galaxies, M33 is also known as the Triangulum Galaxy and lies about 3 million light-years distant. Its inner 30,000 light-years are shown in this telescopic galaxy portrait that enhances the reddish ionized hydrogen clouds or HII regions. Sprawling along loose spiral arms that wind toward the core, M33's giant HII regions are some of the largest known stellar nurseries, sites of the formation of short-lived but very massive stars. Intense ultraviolet radiation from the luminous, massive stars ionizes the surrounding hydrogen gas and ultimately produces the characteristic red glow. To enhance this image, broadband data was used to produce a color view of the galaxy and combined with narrowband data recorded through a hydrogen-alpha filter, transmitting the light of the strongest hydrogen emission line. To see the monochromatic narrowband data alone, move your cursor over the image, or take this video tour of the hydrogen clouds of M33.
