    What do/would you like to do, in spite of things

    Ride my bike, see Australia, keep teaching, read about things that are stupid to others, write stupid rants that stay in my computer, sing out loud in public, and sleep on the couch when I feel like it.
    When I ride, the troubles just roll off my back.

    Build frames for a living, despite the fact that even Arby's is too esoteric and expensive of a business to survive around here.

    I'd like to have a nice 35-40 ft sailboat and sail the carribean. Just hopping from island to island, fishing on occasion, going ashore for a day or two sometimes, and just all around being a beach bumb.

    Sell my overpriced hovel in CA and buy that castle in Kansas and turn it into a Bed and Breakfast Castle for cyclist riding across America. Full bike shop with handsome mechanic , Taxi's wife Kathy could be the cook, barbeque bonfires in the courtyard, and guarded by retired greyhounds.

    If only Kansas weren't....Kansas!

    When we were little tikes in grade school chorus, we would sing this song stressing the dirty word:

    I'd like to buy the world a home and furni-"SH-IT!!" with love!


    It's pretty funny to hear 50 little kids all say SH1T at the same time.

    I do triathlons. Nobody thought i'd ever start doing them when i first started telling people about it.

    (granted, they've all been sprint distance ones but it's more than what over 99% of the world population has done)

    Be more socialable (Im a Hi and bye kindoff a guy)
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    That's what I'd do. I'd buy Kansas, kick everyone out, and then remodel the state. I'd turn it into something that someone passing through might want to actually stop in, or even better, a place where people would go out of their way to visit.

    Or I'd do the George Carlin thing and fence off one of the square states into a giant prison.

    I bike instead of drive and I don't watch television, in spite of what everyone may think about that. Around here that makes me one of the weirdest people in town.

    What I'd like to do in spite of things? Build bike frames in some old workshop somewhere in New England. My bikes would be versatile and useful, yet beautiful to look at.

    The exercise of two passions would do it for me:

    I'd like to direct biomedical/psychosocial research on the human mind/brain to the extent that I'd prove my theories and be periodically honored over the span of two or three decades with the highest recognitional awards -- Nobel(s) of course -- it wouldn't take much from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to reach my goals. I'd also appear annually at the World Series Of Poker, beginning in 2010, wrists loaded with bracelets in the years to follow. I'd wear my WSOP bracelets at the Nobel ceremonies.

    To respond to the thread instead of a post (oops. ), I look forward to one of our exceptionally rare rain events, so that I can go for a bike ride in the rain. To see the reactions of others, you'd think the whole "acid rain" hysteria is not only true, but a hundred times worse than we could have ever imagined.

    *shrug* I find being out in the rain to be very... pleasant.
