Train travel is interesting, partly because there is no attempt at landscaping. The tracks reduce property values nearby, except for industry. I've had a few good train trips. One time, I spent 3 days finishing off chores like mending that I could do on the train. As we got close to a major destinat...

There's sort of a hierarchy of travel authenticity: Still pictures Small video clips Theatre Package Tour Car travel, HoJo or KOA Subway train or intercity bus Off-Road motoring Imax theatre Boating Bicycling Walking As my friend Steve notes, "The bigger the vehicle, the smaller the adventure."

Aww, it's not that bad. There's a underground classic video of two Korean guys hitchiking and freight-hopping across the US. That's pretty hairy, yet they didn't need to know much. I did stuff when traveling that I would't recommend now, but I always muddled through. When Blanche DuBois put her trus...

You might want to consider participating on an archeological dig or other volunteer work. The conversation tends to be more interesting.

Can you just leave off some of your qualifications? Borrow a NASCAR jacket or a ball cap for the right team? Sometimes an interviewer will ask if you know some quotes from Shakespeare or some such probe, and if you do, you are not going to fit with the team. When Peter Drucker was first writing abou...

How about anything to do with team sports? Except in the spirit of anthropology. I won't usually enter any contest if I don't expect to get a prize. No filling out the field for me.

I've made the choice last fall, not to be an angry person, anymore. :) I used to have more choice in the matter, it seems. Having first gotten a temporary overload by accident, I went into a positive feedback loop of negativity. Thanks for all responses - still curious about the pattern. Do people ...

to the OP - it may also be the way you are expressing what you are angry about. in therapy i learned to express my emotions without causing an uproar (and without getting ignored). it's more complicated than what i could post in one response on a thread, but you might want to look into that. group ...

I have found that the more time someone spends angry the less reaction anyone around them is going to have to their anger as it has become their "baseline" emotional state and not an indication of anything in particular being wrong. I don't know your specific circumstances, but is it possible this ...

What do you want the other person/people to say or do when you get angry? If they do what you want, will it make you feel suddenly not angry? Yes, a couple of weeks ago, one guy made a 'phone call to get me some useful information in a dispute, and I had the happiest day of my year. It isn't even j...

When I was young, I was just quarantined when I had any strong feelings, so I learned to be mostly numb and unexpressive. However, now I have a problem that no matter how angry I get, nobody takes me seriously. Partly, it must be that I see the true situations through logical connections that escape...

Perhaps such thoughts are partly a result of seeing violence on the screen. I avoid that. The randomness is dream-like, part of a process of inner resolution of feelings.

A lot of therapists have recommended hitting things that can take it. At an office, you won't do any damage by throwing a paper ball no matter how hard you try. At home, hitting a pillow with a tennis racket or stick is a popular recommendation. I once set up a big truck inner tube full of water to ...

So, while you wait, do stints of a few hours as a tourist in your own town, and find out what you like, and if there is any need to travel far for more variety. Niagara Falls and NYC have tons of tourist attractions if you like that sort of thing. Bike touring can also be started on any scale. My fr...
