comment How to deal with aggressive homeless when exploring urbex?
@Łukasz웃Lツ Your last comment fits perfectly on the boat programming meme. The basic idea behind this meme is that relating something to the topic of a stackexchange site does not automatically make the question on topic.

comment Urbex question: How to protect myself from asbestos?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about health issues in urban areas. This is quite far away from what is typically considered "outdoors".

comment Advantages of types of sleeping bags over another
@Ryley Indeed this might need clarification. In my understanding a blanket type sleeping bag is sleeping bag that has the form of a blanket that was folded once and then closed with an L-shaped zipper so that it forms a bag with one of the short edges open (cf. yeti.com.pl/en/yeti-wspiera-wydarzenia/…). But maybe I got WedaPashi wrong.

comment Advantages of types of sleeping bags over another
@WedaPashi Yes and no! As the bag covers your body like a tube, it will just follow the bending of your knees, so that could be fine. If you are more like taking a fetal curl position, this might not work so well in most mummy bags as you won't be able to fold yourself within the bag. However, there are bags that are a bit wider and to some extend expansible in their middle section to allow for some knee movement. I will edit this in as soon as I will have some more time the next days.

@AM_Hawk I'm not a native English speaker and every dictionary entry I found concerning the term "yolk(s)" was totally unrelated to sleeping bags. Could you explain what it means in this context?

comment Color vision deficiency a dead end for mountaineering career, as an athlete?
Obviously (see the answers given so far) it does not get quite clear what you mean with "career" in this context. Do you think about getting a mountaineering professional in terms of a sponsored athlete or a mountain guide or do you just want to attend commercially guided mountaineering tours? Also the type of color vision deficiency is of interest as it makes a huge difference. Could you please clarify?
