    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I've never been to Detroit, but they did give us the White Stripes. That's a point in its favor, for sure.

    Philadelphia gets a similar reputation as a shithole, which I also think is unfair. Yes, there's crime, but lots of cities have crime, and Philly isn't even worst where that is concerned.

    There's also a lot of good things. It's kind of become a mecca for young people, especially since New York so damn expensive. There are a lot of cool things going on, things that give me hope.

    They also gave us ADULT., who's regarded as a pioneering electronic band.

    True the fisher man is master of his own destiny more than many but there are two different business models with attendant life expectations, I think the fisher man's the wisest but I see it as within the being mode of existence rather than the having.

    He makes a life rather than just makes a living.
    In my opinion 9-5'ers invest time the wrong way. I did the same for 10 years because of my lack of knowledge so I don't blame anyone for that. It's not long ago that I've figured out that its actually possible to escape this.

    Many 9-5'ers are far from being as happy as the fisherman that works only in the morning (freelance/sole-trader), although they are in somewhat better position than a fisherman that works morning and night (entrepreneur who runs a VC backed company). Many, if not most 9-5'ers have a life plan (or maybe not) that I want to avoid. It's not a binary choice like in the fisherman tale. Fortunately, as usual there are other less famous ways to earn money and discovering some of them doesn't take a length of a decade and there are a lot of very useful things to learn on the way. I want to be a fisherman that works only in the morning or even better if I can pull it off.

    There are endless number of ways to make money. You don't have to run a company *owned by others* to have more time and/or money than a 9-5er. Even if you have shit loads of money, you are very-very poor if you don't have time. I don't want to be part of the classic corporate world and the rat race in any way. Many people (with many different methods) managed to earn more money than a 9-5er by investing much less time per day often with custom schedule. One doesn't have to be a dirty rich millionaire, the only necessary things are free time and fair amount of money. I have no problem with the fact that 9-5 is OK for so many. I wish good luck and happiness for those who are OK with it, I'm a completely different kind of animal. I've done 9-5 for 10 years and I was never happy with it despite working with something I loved so much as a hobby before starting 9-5. Not long after starting 9-5 I started hating it.

    You know how at a certain age (in America) you can give consent to allow your future corpse to be donated to science? Well I think another option should be to give your body to a Necrophiliac Center, where people can pleasure themselves with your corpse to their heart's content. I'd be much more satisfied knowing I have successfully stimulated the sexual organs of a person who rarely ever gets the opportunity to exercise his fetish, than to be dissected and used in someone elses' body! Blegh! >.<

    ^^^ Wowzers.

    I believe that every driver over the age of, say, sixty, should be required to pass a driving test every... three years or so, to prove that they're still capable of driving. There are way too many elderly drivers who are a danger to themselves and others.

    I realize the DMV employees would probably be terrified to administer these driving tests, but that's too bad. In the end, it would save lives.
