    I think Victor is into juicing green drinks and other heathy stuff. Could be mistaken though.

    That makes sense. I worked in Australia for about a month. The juice bars were awesome. I don't know why we don't have more of them in the US. We have Jamba Juice

    MBTI discussion, obviously. It's a place to navel-gaze and get some feedback on it. Hypothetical musings is my version of small talk. The exchange of ideas here is fun, and not something I see in the real world very much.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I think it is more interesting to ask "What do you/I mean to the forum?"

    But besides that, the forum is a place where I know some people and I like the conversations. It is a place to spend some time using English too as I speak Japanese most of the time. ?

    It also gives me a chance to talk about the nonsense that runs through my head

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Default The Quotidian and the Ecstatic

    The normal style here is the conversational style. Most use it unconsciously because that is the style we speak every day.

    However this is not the spoken word but electronic text.

    This provides us with an opportunity to see in a new way.

    And seeing in a new way is often accompanied by a new style.

    So rather than being a continuation of ordinary life, we are reaching from the quotidian to the ecstatic.

    Uh.. OK. Maybe you should be a philosopher. Wait, maybe you are one.

    (note: I took a Philosophy class in college and didn't know what the heck the professor was talking about most of the time, so maybe there is a pattern here).

    Edit: No disrespect at all - just different a communication style that I don't appear to understand well, as if that isn't completely obvious already.
