Title: Numbers about yourself
Post by: CTG on January 18, 2009, 11:55:46 PM
The BMI discussion in 'Useless messages...' inspired me to open this topic... Come on, tell the public numbers! ;)

Height: 176 cm
Weight: 88 kg (at the moment, summer plan is < 80 kg)
Fat ratio: ~31% (estimation from a fitness website, 10-20 is normal for a man)
Shoe size: 42 1/2 (US 8, EN 7 1/2)
Upper arm circuit: 37.5 cm
Head circuit: 59.5 cm
"Wing-spread": 181 cm

That's all I know in the current situation... Maybe other useless data is coming soon, not related to body but life activities, like travelling X kms or running Y meters in Z seconds. :D

This is at least as useless as useless messages.

height: 183cm
weight: 61kg
fat ratio (measured 2 years ago): 9%
shoe size: 45 1/2
don't know the others.

But our baby was measured 6,5cm today. :)

I forgot that we also know the approximate weight!

Our baby is 6.5cm tall
Weight is 0.080 kg

that equals a BMI of
0.080/(0.065*0.065)= 18.934

 ;D

Last year I spent about 90-100 days online on the Internet - probably more than sleeping (~80-90 days)...

Calculating with my average food intake, I've eaten about 120,000,000 kilojoule from my birth (energy of 30 tons TNT explosion); but drinking only ~30,000 liters of water.

Adding the growth of my every single piece hair from my birth, result is about 300 kms.

Breathing: well, my lungs "wasted" about 130,000 cubic meter air so far...

Height: 180 cm
Weight: 74 kg at the moment
Fat ratio: No idea (Maybe you can link me to that fitness website you talked about)
Shoe size: 42 No idea in other countries.
Upper arm circuit: Will measure it at home and edit this
Head circuit: Will measure it at home and edit this, too
"Wing-spread": I think it was about 190 but... Will measure it at home and edit this to make sure.

I bike around 10 Km/day (My girlfriend lives 6.5 Km away from my house + university is 4.5 Km away + friends - Stormy days  ;))

http://body.builder.hu/prg_zsir3.htm4 (http://body.builder.hu/prg_zsir3.htm4) but it's in Hungarian. You have to measure the thickness of the fat layer (just pick it from two side with your fingers) at the three signed place (mm) and write them in the calculator. Use the left one ("férfiak", means males): életkor = age, testsúly = weight, mellkas: add fat layer on your chest, has: add fat layer on your stomach, comb: add fat layer on your upper leg; then press "Számol" (calculate).

Results:

Testzsír = fat content
Zsírtömeg = weight of fat
Zsírmentes testtömeg = lean body mass (theoretical value, impossible to reach)
Leadható zsírtömeg = weight of fat that you can lose with diet and training (quite a strict value but this is a website for body builders... :D)

There's a more precise method with 7 point measurements, I'll try that too.

They are low, but not extremely low, and taking my principles into consideration, they are absolutely not shameful. And the quality is other factor: I think (to be really honest and sincere, without intending to hurt anybody), in Stunts community, my girls and "girls" were of quite high standards related to others'.

I wrote "to be really honest and sincere" because that wanted to mean that I had been trying to think with the world's brain, and not with mine. And still, I held on to my opinion, and I'm holding on. BÖFF! Btw I was a bit drunken when I wrote that sentences. :) And the drunken people say right. What's more, I don't have a girlfriend at the moment, and I'm not in love with anybody, so - opposite some others - I can think with a clearer mind.

Btw I'm also losing weight: 12 January 95.8 kgs, today 91.3 kgs. Quite good.

I has nothing to do with that. I have a girlfriend but I know she's not the prettiest girl in the world, even if she's ny girlfriend. What BJ probably meant is that different men like different kind of woman. For instance, CTG likes skinny girls and I don't, and that has no relation with us being in love whatsoever.

I think I'd like to work on the North and the South rather than on the West and the East. Once I'd like to see the Sun when it does not set during the night during an Arctic summer. On the South, I could see some never observed constellations (and a much brighter Milky Way) - the farther, the more. These would be much bigger memories for me than experiencing the atmosphere of different cultures. :) BÖFF!

Btw I crossed the Hungarian border on the East, too - but it wasn't farther from Greenwich line than Jánd, Hungary (where my grandfather was born).

I'd also love to see the Southern Hemisphere, but from 48 degrees North, it also seem to be impossible (unaffordable at the moment). Greenwich line is created by men, so it's not a big deal to cross it. The Equator would be more interesting. :)

At least I'd like to reach the Tropic of Cancer to see some more Southern constellations and to see the Sun in the top of the sky in June.

Thanks! I hope I can beat the East record this year, there might be a possibility to travel to Transylvania this year (conference/hiking group/sightseeing tourist group... any case would suit me).

One 'coordinate' is still missing: the highest elevation reached (by foot).

My personal record was broken on 8th this month, it's 2 024 m now (Chopok, Lower Tatras / Carpathian Mountains, Slovakia).

Of course it wasn't climbed from sea level.  ;D But a very-very steep and rocky mountain it was (+snow +fog).

Apropo, 'My city' topic. If I'm not mistaken, the time spent in Budapest overtakes Györ in these months...

1983-1997: living in Györ, 5-10 days/year in Budapest
1997-2005: studies in Budapest, weekends and summer holidays in Györ (although a bit less in the last two years, because of the summer practice, etc.)
2005-2009:  still the studies, but living together with my girlfriend, maybe every second weekend at my parents (and one or two weeks in the summer)
2009-2013: living in our own flat in Budapest, visiting my parents 5-6 times in a year...
Title: Re: Numbers about yourself

Places where I lived:

1983-1985 Kazincbarcika, at my grandma's
1985-1991 Kazincbarcika, first flat of my parents
1991-1997 Kazincbarcika, second (bigger) flat of my parents
1997-2001 Kazincbarcika, second (bigger) flat of my parents plus cca. half of the year in Budapest, in a dormitory
2001-2007 Kazincbarcika, second (bigger) flat of my parents (from 2006, only my mother is living there) plus cca. half of the year in Debrecen, in two lodgings, two dormitories and the minus five star 'hotel' of the railway station
2007-2008 Kazincbarcika, second (bigger) flat of my parents, only my mother is living there
2008-2011 Kazincbarcika, at my grandma's
2011-2012 Kazincbarcika, at my own flat

Is there any other reason to ignore Üllö?

If we had enough money to buy a house in Budapest, we would do that - probably in 16th district. But unfortunately prices are quite high in the capital, 1.5-2x compared to Üllö. However, I still give 10% for leaving the country in a year, so maybe we won't ever live there...

The nature was unbelievable. We hiked for five days in a remote, uninhabited area. It was tough, and it was cold (even though it was sunny and summer), but so beautiful. Every little corner was beautiful. The pictures you can see on Facebook are good, but of course they don't grasp the feeling of being there. Two other special things: the air is cleaner and fresher than anywhere else, and the place we went to was flooded with mountain springs full of drinkable water.

We only saw a small corner of Iceland. I think I could go there 20 times and still have areas left to see. You should go mainly for nature, though. Culturally, it's certainly got appeal, but it's quickly surveyed. Reykjavik is a nice and active hipster city with a good atmosphere in summer - a bit like Århus, but smaller and with better views.

That's just a blasé comment spoken about a culture you have no insight into. You wouldn't say that about something you had seen from the inside. The hipster culture is just as good as any other culture. Like most cultures, it offers more than self-identifcation. It offers activities, creativity, community etc.

What is 'a real goal in life' to you? And do you feel the same way about sports fans, nerds, hippies, goths, picsácipö girls and everyone else who isn't culturally neutral?

For me, a real goal in the life is something what makes the life of other people better, and/or contributes to the common heritage of mankind (scientific knowledge, works of art, etc.). Being a hipster or following any other, currently fashionable lifestyle is not like this. I'm sure that after 100 years (or even less) nobody will know that hipsters ever lived on Earth.

125000GBP from work in bars and hotels?  :o
In Hungary that would need working 30 years full-time as a bartender not spending on _anything else_. I am not sure about UK wages, but probably still several years needed.

Also, from this much money this is an easy feat. You can travel the world for a year for about 20000GBP.

I wonder about the coordinates of your hometown - it would be more interesting to check our relative records (degrees counted from hometown coordinates).

Of course it is not a big deal to own the South record if you are born on the Southern Hemisphere or to own the North if you are born in Scandinavia... But how far did you manage to go away from the place where you were born or where you are living?

I wonder about the coordinates of your hometown - it would be more interesting to check our relative records (degrees counted from hometown coordinates).

Actually, I was wondering where I was furthest from home. (I'm considering Szolnok as my hometown; that's where I spent the most time in my life, and the No.1 place where I feel myself at home.) Based on Google Earth, my furthest position from Szolnok was 2632 km away, on the west coast of Portugal (close to the SW tip).

Szolnok is at 47°10' N, 20°11' E, so my relative records in degrees are:

North: 21° 38' (68° 48' N, Harstad, NOR)
South: 10° 09' (37° 01' N, Faro, POR)
West: 29° 24' (9° 13' W, Cabo Espichel, POR)
East: 5° 56' (26° 07' E, Palanca, ROM)

It would be really good to improve the crappy East record. The second worst is South, but the most reachable places in this direction (Africa & Middle East) are not too interesting for me. If once I go south, I'd rather travel to S America, where I can see the southern skies as well as Stunts pipsqueaks / ghosts.

If Aarhus is my hometown, that would mean something like:

North: 10 (well, it's hard to go that much further North when your starting point is so northern...)
East: 129
South: 34
West: 32

But of course, my South extreme (Macau) was dramatically further away than my West extreme (Iceland), even though they look close above.

Transit:

Serbia (- Horgos - Újvidék/Novi Sad - Nándorfehérvár/Belgrád - Nis/Nissza - Pirot/Sarköi - Dimitrovgrad (the Serbian one) -)

Another interesting record:

70 stotinka for a 170 g freshly baked, delicious pizza slice in Burgas + 0.2 liter of a soft drink (that was not very good)... 1 leva = 1/1.95 Euro = 100 stotinka... 3 pizza slices=a very good dinner for only a lil more than 1 Euro, that is awesome... and they have to hire the building and still have income on it... now think about Western European prices...

Highest elevation reached on foot: the Bystrá (Hungarian: Sebes, Polish: Bystra) peak (the highest point of the Western Tatras), 2,248 meters above sea level.

We started from 930 meters above sea level (Podbanské/Podbanszkó, Slovakia), that means 1,318 meters of absolute elevation gain, which is also a record. We followed the path: Pysné sedlo (Köves-nyereg in Hungarian, Pysznianska Przelecz in Polish) - Blyst (Bliszt in Hungarian, Blyszcz in Polish) - Bystrá (Sebes).

What a shame, I lost my camera during the hiking...

Though the elevation gain would be less, this is a more difficult climb, at least technically.

Why don't you simply go by car? I guess many 2500+ mountains are available on road. ;D

Your West, East and South records will be still better than mines, and that probably won't change in the near future.

My chances of traveling further than your current records in the next 5 years: west - 0.5%, east - 10%, south - 40%.
The chances of breaking my personal records in the next 5 years: east - 25%, south - 45%, west - 55%, north - 85%, altitude - 99% (now) or 25% (after accomplishing the Etna hike).

It's not a cheat, but we haven't counted the destinations which were only reached by flying on plane.

If we change this, I've been to Greenland (moreover, the northernmost point of the island, which would be my new North record by far), Canada (including the northern territories of it), the Faroe Islands, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland and Iceland, spent some time among Eskimo people. And I've also been to the Czech Republic, France, the Netherlands and Switzerland. Moreover, my West record is also a bit better, because the plane to San Francisco in 2011 reached westerly places than the International Airport and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Not much before Szentlélek, there is Köpüs-nyereg (Köpüs Saddle), according to Google Earth, it is 754 m a.s.l., which is my new height record with BIKE. 619 m elevation gain, that's also a very good number (at least at the age of 31, at the weight of 97 kg, with a not-too-good mountain bike). More than 500 m out of this 619 m came in the last 10 km on my route to Szentlélek.

More than 500 m out of this 619 m came in the last 10 km on my route to Szentlélek.

Well, today I was not working. I went instead a bike trip. Good weather was promised: sunny, weak/moderate wind, mild temperatures.

I broke my height record by reaching 903 metres (according to Google Earth) between Farkas-nyaki-elágazás and Bánkút in the Bükk Mountains. Endomondo only said 894, but it is not very precise. Dom from metnet.hu, knowing the Bükk well, also said that the road to Bánkút reaches 900 m before finish, but then descends through the finish.

Route: before Szentlélek, the same as last week. Then: Csikorgó - Farkas-nyaki-elágazás (Wolfneck Cross) - Bánkút (880 m, 903 m before finish) - Nagy-mezö (Large Meadow, 780 m) - Zsidó-rét (Jewish Meadow) - Olasz-kapu (Italian Gate, 885 m) - Gerennavár (Gerenna Castle, ~700 m) - Millenniumi Kilátó (Millennium Viewpoint, ~600 m) - Szalajka-völgy (Szalajka Valley, ~400 m) - Szilvásvárad - Nagyvisnyó - Dédestapolcsány (~200 m) - Fúcking annoying and tiring ascent (310 m) - Tardona - Kazincbarcika.

This is 86.42 km, with lot of ascent and descent. 14.24 km/h average, counting everything (eating, drinking, shopping, red lights, photo, having a rest etc.), that is surprisingly good I think. I went alone by the way.

This is a top5 bike distance in my whole life (probably exactly 5th, record: 123 km with Usrin, Kazincbarcika - Eger - Kazincbarcika, 11th June 2004), but by far the most difficult trip. Also a chance for the biggest sport result ever completed by me.

Now I'm fúcking tired, but it was worthy.

I hope to be able explore the Bükk mountains next year in a bit more depth.

Of course it was tarmac, though it was of bad quality from Varbó to Szilvásvárad, especially on the Bükk Plateau.

Total elevation:
if I count only the bigger climbs, there were:
- from Kazincbarcika to Bánkút, from 135 m to 903 m, this is 768 m (most difficult part: from Lake Varbó to Bánkút, 16 km, elevation gain: 700 m, with very steep parts)
- from Nagy-mezö (780 m) to Olasz-kapu (885 m), this is 105 m
- from Dédestapolcsány (200 m) to the last steep but short climb (310 m), this is 110 m.
Sum total: 993 m. Though there were several minor ups and downs on the route, so in real, the total covered elevation is more.
Endomondo says 2187 m total ascent, but this sounds too much. Maybe it took every little ascent into account, and also some hundred meters were added by the inaccuracy of the GPS. https://www.endomondo.com/users/20780060/workouts/598352418
I would say 1200 m - 1400 m is realistic.

I think there is only one more difficult tarmac climb in the country, climbing Kékes from Gyöngyös. The Bükk Mountains are really worthy to be explored, nice routes and bike routes especially over 700 m (which covers a significant part of the mountain range).

http://www.mvte.hu/HOTT.html - I think this route was a bit more difficult than the Herman Ottó 65 route.
