[tor-talk] Tor -> VPN Clarification


Relative newbie here, and I was wondering if someone could help me with
something please. I keep seeing people describing connections to the Tor
and is VPN connections in the following two ways:

Tor -> VPN
VPN -> Tor

So if I fire up Tunnelblick, connect to my VPN provider and then open
TBB which of the above does this describe?  And also, is there a
recommended way of connecting these two technologies?

Another thing I've noticed is in the Tunnelblick client that there is an
option to connect to a Socks5 proxy, this suggests to me that I can send
the VPN connection through the Tor network.  But I am confused as to why
one would want to do this, and what the benefits/disadvantages might be?

Really appreciate any help you guys could give me!
