    Unhappy Why so much sadness?

    Is there more sadness than happiness in the world? If so, why? Why the natural sadness? Who would create such a thing?

    It's entirely due to a lack of smilies and lack of physical exercise. I do my part by riding my bike everywhere and tossing in a smile or two to the disgruntled drivers that sit while I sail by..

    When I lived in TO I used to ride my bike to work everyday....all year round..subway if it was REALLY bad

    I didnt get a car til I was 33

    I would ride to work again...but I cant figure out how to get the kids and all thier sh$t to school and home everyday


    I think you have something there though Ms M...lack of excerise.

    I workout to releive the stress of dealing with Lusers and Idi0ts everyday...keeps me from smacking them upside the head

    I was out on my bike last night for the first time in ages. Only two wheeled fun I get now after selling my motorbike to pay for a new kitchen, not that I'm bitter...

    Going out again tonight to try to get the beer gut down a bit.

    I'd love to cycle or walk to work but it a 75 mile round trip. I used to drive 110 miles a day until I changed job.

    Regular excercise is as effective as prozac for mild depression apparently.

    When I encounter someone who seems inexplicably sad,
    I smack 'em around a little bit and give 'em something to
    really be sad about.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    And, right there, you are missing the finest stress reliever known to man, or woman...

    I also find that, (being able to drive home at lunchtime), a nice game of CounterStrike at midday can work wonders for one's post prandial tantrums....

    Unfortunately for my users that "little avenue of pleasure" will soon be cut off... I'm pretty sure we have a new house that is much too far away to be driving home at lunch... *SIGH*... But it has it's advantages....
