How To Calculate How Long An Oxygen Tank Will Last

 Your question.  how long will a b oxygen tank last with a pressure of 2000 and a liter flow of 3lpm

My humble answer. 

To estimate the duration a portable oxygen tank will last, you can use the following formula:

Duration (in hours)=Tank Pressure (in psi)×Tank Factor Flow Rate (in LPM) Duration (in hours) = Flow Rate (in LPM) Tank Pressure (in psi)×Tank Factor​

The "Tank Factor" is a constant value based on the size of the oxygen tank. For medical oxygen tanks, the typical tank factor is around 0.16. So, for a tank pressure of 2000 psi and a liter flow of 3 LPM:

Duration=2000 psi×0.163 LPMDuration=3LPM2000psi×0.16​

Duration=3203≈106.67 hoursDuration=3320​≈106.67hours

So, the oxygen tank with a pressure of 2000 psi and a liter flow of 3 LPM would last approximately 106.67 hours. Keep in mind that this is a rough estimate, and actual duration may vary based on factors such as the tank's condition, environmental conditions, and the accuracy of the flow meter. Always consult with a healthcare professional or the oxygen supplier for precise information regarding specific oxygen equipment.

I am cool, and that's not being egotystical

EVS jokingly quipped, "Is that all you do—walk around and look cool?"

I retorted with a grin, "Yep." Pausing for effect, I continued, "Actually, I've been exceptionally busy today. It's just that I'm so fast and efficient at what I do compared to my coworkers that I get to enjoy more leisurely strolls, looking cool and all."

It's not being egotystical. It's just that we all have different personalities. And we all go about the same job in different ways. 

Individuality in the workplace is indeed a beautiful thing. We each bring our unique styles and approaches to the job, fostering a diverse and dynamic environment. It's not about ego; it's about embracing the richness that arises from our distinct personalities and methods in tackling the same tasks. Personally, my individuality creates an ambiance of coolness and calmness. I get the job done with a grace of cool. It's just that my individuality contributes to an ambiance of coolness and calmness, allowing me to get the job done with a sense of grace and ease.

Here Is Why Israel Is Not The Oppressor Of Palestinians

This cartoon is a lie.
Why are people in the United States saying that Israel is the aggressor after it was Israel that was the victim of aggression by Hamas, a terrorist group? Why are people in the U.S. and around the world saying that Israel is not removed from the blame for what Hamas did? Why are their anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian protests here in the U.S.? 

To put it in perspective, you can compare the Palestinians with Black Lives Matter (BLM) here in the U.S. 


Here in the U.S., many blacks live in poor neighborhoods. Many of them are in the underclass: they have low paying jobs and live in poverty. Many prisons are filled with blacks. And the reason for this is oppression by white people. I'm not making this up. This is what BLM says. 

If black people commit crimes, it is not their fault. It is the fault of their white oppressors. So, this is why you have BLM calling for defunding the police. This is why you have a surge in shoplifting and the police doing nothing about it. It's because blacks are just doing this to make a living because they are being oppressed by white people. 


They are lead by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO). And they have a stated mission of creating one Palestinian state with now Jews. They call for the elimination of all Jews and the elimination of Israel. 

Now let's get a little back story. The State of Israel was created in 1948, following the Hollocaust. This was just a little sliver of land in the Middle East. At the time, both Jews and Muslims lived on this lant. And the State of Israel welcomed all to stay. All of the Jewish stayed in Israel. And about 80% of the Muslims left and became the Palestinians. 

At first, when there were only a few Palistinians, Israel said you are welcome back in our land anytime. But, the Palestinians did not want to go back. And, since then, they have voted for some sort of terrorist organization to rule them ever since. At first it was the PLO. Now it is Hamas. And all of these organizations have had as their charter the destruction of Israel and the creation of one state of Palestine with no Jews. 

It's not like they are secretive of this either. They are very open about it. Even today members of Hamas say openly, "Our goal is to destroy the Jews." They said this sort of stuff before, during, and after the most recent attacks on Israel. And, yet, there are still Hamas and Palestinian sympathizers. Why? 

And, of course, the reason is because there is this myth that Israel is the oppressor. How could this be? Well, they say that Israel should let the Palestinians back in to Israel. The problem is, the number of Palestinians since 1948 has grown exponentially. So, if Israel welcomed them back in now, Israel would be overcome by the Palestinians. And, remember, the Palestinians do not want to live with the Jews; they want to live in the land of the Jews with no Jews. They want a Palestinian state from coast to coast with no Jews. 

Okay? So, Israel cannot let the Palestinians in for that reason. 

And think of it this way. If the Palestinians truly wanted a home, why then do they not get absorbed by the neighboring nations of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Turkey? All of these nations are nations with 100% Muslim populations. While Israel welcomed the Palestinians to stay in Israel in 1948. And Israel also allowed any homeless Jew to come to the State of Israel. Not one of these Muslim nations welcomed any Jews into their nations. And they have stated why many times. 

But, the people like those who are currently protesting on behalf of Hamas and Palestine are obviously not aware of this history and these facts. Lacking this wisdom, it is easy for them to fall victim to the lies of the PLO and Hamas, who make it look like THEY are the victims here because THEY are oppressed by the Jews. 

In Israel, there is a 20% Palestinian Population. And they live in peace with the Jews. In all of the seven Muslim nations I listed above that surround Israel, there are zero Jews in any of them. And they easily could take in the Palestinians. But they don't want to. Because leaving the Palestinians where they are gains them sympathy from the media and protesters in the U.S. and around the west who fail to understand this history and these facts. 

So, then, who are the actual oppressors? Is it Israel? I say not.

My Smart Strategy For Resolving So Called " Climate Crisis"

Let's put aside the debate over man-made global warming or climate change's evolving concept, and for now, assume its reality. This shift in focus lets us delve into productive discussions without debating its existence.

Starting from the premise that human actions contribute to global warming and air pollution, what steps can we take to address this problem?

Halting car production isn't practical; it might damage the economy. Stopping oil drilling and coal mining could also backfire economically. Stricter industry regulations could make things harder for manufacturers and raise consumer prices. Thus, this approach might not yield positive economic outcomes.

While we aspire to a future free from fossil fuels, we're not there yet.

Promoting electric cars is challenging but a step forward. Raising taxes for Green New Deal initiatives is another option. However, none of these solutions can remove existing CO2 from the air. And they might further slow the economy, which wouldn't benefit our nation.

The mentioned measures, whether implemented or discussed to counteract global warming's impact, could undermine our national interests. Such actions might even favor China, which seems less concerned about global warming's urgency.

This situation requires carefully designed strategies that balance environmental needs with economic stability.

I envision a continued reliance on fossil fuels, given their current effectiveness and economic impact. However, we must simultaneously encourage automotive manufacturers and other stakeholders to transition to exclusive electric vehicle production. This shift requires patience and perseverance, recognizing that progress toward this goal is inevitable, though not immediate.

This approach would be prudent for addressing potential anthropogenic global warming, assuming human activities play a role. Even if it's unrelated, transitioning to electric vehicles offers advantages. Just as innovations like iPhones and computers have seamlessly integrated into our lives, the embrace of electric cars will likely follow suit once they're affordable and as functional as our current vehicles.

Thinking back on COVID

COVID was one of the more interesting times in our history. It was something that we have never experienced before. And hopefully never will again. We were so busy. There was one day I came to work and we had seven high flows and three ventilators. And I was the only therapist available to take care of them. It was unsafe, but that's all we had.

I did have a coworker, but she had her half of the hospital to care for. And she was equally as busy. And I remember one time when ER called and said they needed me STAT in the ER. And I said, "Sorry, I can't go. I have two patients up here that we are about ready to intubate." 

And there was another time I was so busy that, when ER texted that they needed me STAT, I never even had time to respond. It was just so busy. 

I was so busy, one of the nurses asked if I would help prone a patient. "Nope! I'm sorry, I am just too busy." 

I was asked to help take a ventilated patient down to cat scan. "Sorry, I am unavailable right now." 

And there was no way to get more staffing, because it was this busy at every other hospital too. And at one point we needed more ventilators. And I talked to my boss about this. And he said, "Sorry, every other hospital needs more ventilators too." 

Gosh, it was so busy. And it was fun. It was monotonous, but it was fun. It was fun because we really got to use our skills. We got the utmost respect from doctors and nurses AND the community. There was one day I got home, feet hurting like crazy, mind spent with burnout, and there was a sign in my front yard that said, "A Healthcare Hero Lives Here!" 

That was neat. And that same day, as I was walking up to my house, the neighbor lady came over with a pasta dish. It was hot and ready to serve. And she said, "I just appreciate what you are doing so much. I didn't know what else to do for you. So I made you this." That was neat.

IndividualJustice Versus Social Justice

Liberals in our society conflate justice with social justice. And this does not bode well for justice and a free society.
Individual Justice. That's a reduntant term as justice is always thought to be on an individual basis. If something happens to you on an individual level, YOU should have justice. This is because YOU were the one damaged. If you do harm to someone else, Justice should be after YOU. Justice, therefore, is always individual in nature. 

Gorup Justice. Social Justice. There is no such thing. It undermines the notion of individual justice. 

We have a tendency in our society to turn everyting into a referendum on groups. 

Example. Matt Araiza. He was charged of gang rape. He was a member of the Buffalo Bills. And, rather than waiting for him to be found guilty or not guilty in a court of law, the Bills released him. They told him to deal with his problems. 

As it turned out, he was not charged. It turned out he wasn't even present and a gang rape never even occurred. But, he is still unable to get a job in the NFL. And this sucks. It is so unfair. Why is he not able to get an NFL job? He would dominate as a punt returner. He shined in his brief stint with the Bills. 

Another example is Trevor Bauer. He was accused of rape. And he was released from the Dodgers before he even had a triel. Justice was not served here. And the charges were dropped due to lack of evidence. Yet he still cannot get a job. 

Why? He is innocent until proven guilty. 

In a court of group justice, he is guilty. He is guilty by association. Because these two athletes were not treated on an individual basis. They were treated as thought they are part of a group. And he is judged as part of a group. 

The reason Araiza was kicked out of the NFL was not because he committed a crime. It was a stand in for every ME TOO incident. This is what we not do with every incident that turns into a media narative. This is indicative of a broader issue and therefore we must make an example of this individual. We have made a decisoin as a society that the minute an accusation is made against a man that he is guilty and we are going to destroy his life. 

If he is convicted of this crime, his life should be destroyed. But, if you are not, then you should be set free. And you should be able to rejoin society. But, that is not the case with social justice. And this is why social justice is so wrong. 

The idea that our society is based on white supremacy patriarchy. And the only way to break down the patriarchy is to break some things. So, if allegations are alone to convict someone, that is the important thing. It sets an example that we do not tolerate such behaviors. Such was the case with Matt Aeraiza. It was also true for Bauer. It was also true for Brett Kavenaugh. They also tried to do this with Trump, but in that case they failed. 

The opposite is true too. You have people getting arrestede and doing horrible crimes. And if a white person did such crime he'd get a long prison sentence or jail sentence. But, if a black person is arrested, he gets off or gets a short jail or prison term. This is because they are victims of white supremacy. So it's not their fault they committed crime. So they are let off. 

The victims here are those crimes are committed against. That person does not get justice. Plus, with all these criminals being put back on the streets, then you have a greater risk for more crimes being committed. 

So, group justice is bad. It is horrible. In fact, social justice may be the result of the perversion of our Bible. Or the fact that so many people have gotten away from the Bible. For, in the Bible, we have Levaticus 19:15 which states: "Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the gret, but judge your neighbor fairly." 

Today, with social justice, we treat one group one way and another group another way. And this has messed up our society. And, hopefully, it will wrech the democratic party which is partial to social justice and impartial to justice. 

‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.

What Happens When You Forget The Purpose Of Sex/ Life?

Andrew Tate argued that he would rather have sex with a really good looking woman who is really a man than an ugly woman who is a natural woman. 


Like, what is he talking about? This makes no sense. 

Allow me to make sense of this. 

Here is his initial question: 

"Would you rather have sex with a transexual, which is a legitimate 10, or woman, which is a legitimate one?"And everyone is sittin' there clicking woman, woman, woman 'cuz they think they're gonna be gay if they do anything else, but they're not actually thinking about the question. I am so smart, I operate on so many levels higher than the average man. When I say a one and a ten, I mean Megan Fox with a d*ck – that's the tranny. Or Hulk Hogan with a p*ssy – that's the girl. This is the question I'm asking. Megan Fox or Hulk Hogan?"

This is similar to people who say we should allow transgender women with male body parts to use female bathrooms, the same bathrooms our daughters use. And this is similar to people who say that transgender women who have penises should compete against our daughters in female sports. 

So, how did we get here as a society? 

It's because we are seeing the death of masculinity and femininity. We, as a society, have lost sight that things were created with a purpose. God created us with a purpose. Or, if you don't believe in God, Evolution created us with a purpose. 

The purpose is reproduction. 

Life is created with the purpose of creating life. If reproduction does not happen, then life stops. If bears stop having sex with the purpose of reproducing, then the bear species will be discontinued. The same with humans. The same with any beings: The purpose of all life is to reproduce. 

You date with the purpose of some day having sex and reproducing. Sure, sex can be done for fun. But, the idea is to make a baby, which is the purpose of life. Males and females are built around this purpose

The same with the roles of men and women. The role of women is to get pregnant, give birth, nurse, and comfort children. The role of men is to make babies and then to protect and defend them. 

We as a society have blown this all up.  Our society now claims that there is no purpose to sex other than to have fun. When you disconnect sex with the purpose of life things get crazy really quickly. And this is what leads to men who think they are women who use women's restrooms and crazy stuff like that. 

When you separate male and female sexual bonding. When you sever that connection, all the rules go away. Now you can do whatever you want. And the only thing that actually matters is sexual pleasure. 

But, there is a problem with that. The problem is the animal instincts remain. Evolutionary and biological male and female instincts remain. Men have a natural instinct to have sex. And now you hear stories of men raping women in women's restrooms. Women have a natural instinct to attach to men they trust and who provide protection and offer sexual comfort. When you promote rules of monogomy and chastity all this works out fine. But when you throw these out in favor of having sex with whomever you want so long as you have fun, then chaos ensues and you end up with questions like the one Andrew Tate asked. 

You end up with people like Dr. Jill Biden giving the woman of the year award on International Women's day to a biological man. 

The people this really hurts is women. Women feel less safe in bathrooms. They feel like sports for them no longer matter, despite all the progress that has been made over the years. 

By the way, the normal answer to Tate's question is you have sex with the woman because you can only make a baby with a woman. When you get rid of that you end up in weird Andrew Tate world. You end up in Chaos. 

Look, I am fine with whatever people decide they want for themselves. As a Christian and a Catholic, I love all people. Yet that doesn't prevent me from putting flaws in our society in perspective.
