    some people set out, leave home, wander the country aimlessly, hitchhiking, going to Phish concerts, working as carnies, smoking drugs. Are you one of these folks? [​IMG]

    I'm 26 and I work a 9-5 office job that I hate. It's mundane, boring, tedious and soul-sucking. I hate living in the city and I hate living in a shitty/rainy climate. I'm highly in need of something adventurous.

    I wanna save up first and get rid of the college debt. After that, I'm seriously considering it, if only for a while. I want to spend at least a year on the road in the States while writing and go to Burning Man with a bunch of friends and do crazy shit. I don't know where I'll go from there.

    All I know is that what I'm doing now is temporary. Living like this feels like a huge waste of time to me. If I'm still doing this by the age of 30, I'll kill myself.

    you live in a faggot country on a faggot continent and that's why your soul is sucked dry, because it never formed in the first place

    I feel very very sorry for you

    come to America, learn how to dodge bullets and grow a pair

    Had a teacher in 8th grade that had one.I thought he was bald.I saw him one day with it down and his hair was down to his ass.I figure he kept it all on top so he didnt have to cut it

    I've had some of the best times in my life there. I never got laid more than during my time there, also.

    Still, don't shit on us too much. We FOUNDED your ass.

    i thought you meant drifting, as in a car, which is a lot of fun to do.

    that was my first thought

    then I thought of the Saudi Arabian drifting wreck

    then I thought about posting that

    then I changed my mind

    sometimes I get it right

    That's not that strange, Lots of Dutch roots in the US, and all over the world, really. A couple of hundred years ago we dominated a lot of shit. Everyone thinks we are this friendly hippie country but we kicked some major ass back in the day. We fucked up a lot of shit and for a while we had a trade monopoly with Japan. We had colonies and slavery all over the place. It was awesome. The only reason why New York isn't called New Amsterdam is because we traded it with the British for some islands in the Caribbean.

    We were also one of the last countries to ban slavery, by the way.
