Thread: Question for Big

    Default Question for Big

    Big,
    I hope you don't find this post intrusive...but I found myself thinking about this when I was sitting in traffic today. (I have no idea why)

    Have you ever considered moving out of NYC to a kinder and gentler region in the US?

    Your description of how you were treated when you came to this country tells me you probably didn't grow up in a very nice neighborhood.

    Maybe some of your negative attitudes toward American culture wouldn't be so harsh if you lived in a city with a slower pace.

    I personally can't stand most New Yorkers.

    I could see you settling into a small liberal college town in say Ohio or PA and help with the wrestling team or be a strength coach or something.

    What did you think of PSU? (minus the hazing and wrestling team)

    Cround&Pound,

    I am not against busy life or financial institutions. I am against the system, meaning how it teaches people to think, what they value, and their perception of the world. If I run away to a small town, those after money and power will still do their thing and the system will still praise those same people.

    Therefore, I have to learn the system, ridicule it but adapt to it and live my life making people see there is a better way, my way. I enjoy telling people they are wrong much more than I would enjoy living in a quiet town and licking my wounds. Hope this helps.

    Oh yeah, PSU was great. Nice campus and a great school.

    I get this a lot. That is why it is so great. We will just have to wait and see who is right and who is wrong 20 years from now.

    That's another possibility. Another thing is that 80 years from now most of us will be taking the same dirtnap.
