Dirt Roads And City Lights

The dirt roads how they beckon... The city lights how they mesmerize... Each hold their own mysteries. Each have their own beauty. Each have their own dangerous unknown.

First trip with my new #adventuremobile. My old ford focus wagon just decided to die in a parking lot a few weeks back. After a crazy few weeks I found this guy. Took it out last weekend for our fly fishing trip and couldn’t be more pleased.

“Many people are born crying, live complaining, and die disappointed; they chew the bitter pill which they would not even know to be bitter if they had the sense to swallow it whole in a cup of patience and water.”

“The legal reason a kid who defends himself when attacked in school is suspended/expelled is to avoid litigation and to help everyone “cool off”. The real reason is to condition a human being to fear defending themselves when attacked, to be afraid of doing anything but running away, which, in the environment, marks the student as easy prey to be hunted later. The school’s interest in this is to condition the student body from defending itself against the increasing ridiculousness of the education system. High school students are as old as most initiated warriors in previous societies. So creating a complex in a young mind is a perfect way from keeping the students, en masse, from protesting methods of instruction and punishment. There is simply no logical reason to punish someone who defends themself. There is, however, an authoritative one.”
