Where do society's rejects/dropouts go? All I can think of is the French Foreign Legion. But I'm 53 years old. I'm in shape like a motherfucker. I can run forever, I can do the pullups. But I won't get the chance because I'm too old. What else can I do? HOw can I erase everything and start over like I'm a teenager again? It is just too hard to admit I'm a failure and just coast until I die of old age.

I feel the same way from time to time.

However, I employ a rather Buddhist response to it: recognizing that I'm clinging to something, and that it's causing me "suffering," and thus relinquishing it, as it does no good -- the cessation of clinging ensues, and all is fine.

We have a stable means of supplying our blood stream with alcohol, and this alone makes me pretty content. Stay alive.

Drink, drink, drink. As usual, you motherfuckers are right.

There used to be some British mercenary company that would allow gays into their ranks. They waged war in various places on the African continent, with queers like me aiding their efforts. I only wish I was younger so I could prove to the world I can carry my own weight, that the world can depend on me. There's no more important endeavor in the world than war. Nothing else has a chance to thrive - not technology, not art, not motocross, not football, unless war first succeeds. The fighting boys in Russia and the fighting boys in the West have made sure that all of us can pursue our talents and passions in our respective locations. The parades and monuments are not enough. Before any iPhone can roll off the assembly line, there needs to be a parade for the soldiers who fought to make it possible. Before any Russian vodka comes out of a state-owned distillery, a parade needs to be had right down the middle of red square. I'm exaggerating to make my point. But I think everyone understands that the fighting has to be taken care of first. then we can all get drunk.

oetinger, so when the wall came down, what did everybody say? I'm sure that not everybody in East Germany wanted to be with West Germany. What if they wanted to stay with the USSR? But since everyone in West Germany was richer than everyone in East Germany, did the western Germans want the eastern Germans to stay over there so that they wouldn't bum any money? Did the east Germans come over there and try to get handouts from the West Germans?

I would have liked to party in East Berlin, just to see what it was like, just to hear what everyone was talking about. There must have been some people who wanted to stay in the USSR. I wonder what their reasoning was.

See, here's the thing. If I was in East Berlin and I was a good communist, I could just show up to work in the state-owned factory, did my job, and then I would be supplied with all the booze I could drink in my affordable state-owned apartment. Is that right? That would be all I want. then I could just get drunk and write crappy poetry all fucking night. I wouldn't bother anybody, and nobody would bother me. Is my thinking right?

Well they weren`t asked if they wanted to reunite to start with. Some probably didn`t want to, more regret it today. It was a scam from western politicians and big companies/banks.

Drunkeness wasn`t accepted in the east. Well they did it anyhow, but I`m not sure about the supply. It was probably shit.

I don`t know wich pic you`re talking about, I posted plenty pics of myself drunk. You can flick through my posting history, I surely won`t. Sorry

AD is infact learning german.

Here`s some google images for german dives I`m not sure in which one`s a fight could break out

I am learning to speak German, albeit, rather slowly. I really enjoy it here but mainly thanks to Oett. I haven't traveled around the country much so can't do many comparisons to other places in Germany. We live in a more rural-ish area and the only downside I've experienced is not much English speaking compared to the larger cities so Oett has to do all the talking. I get easily frustrated-like a stranger in a strange land feeling at times. And I miss American food and my friends and what not. But the weather is decent-fairly mild - like Pacific Northwest. Very green and environmentally friendly. Close proximity to other countries that I am looking forward to visiting. We are close to the Netherlands and a plane ticket to London or Dublin is around $40. Once I learn the language I think it will be a perfect paradise for me. And I just moved from Hawaii so I know paradise!

I have experienced this feeling and in turn, had some drastic literal moves moving thousands of miles away in life (like Germany recently lol) and I truly believe it gives you that "fresh start" you are hoping to achieve. It's liberating! All the people, culture, food, things to do is so different and a refreshing change. I love how nobody knows me here. All relationships, jobs, ridiculous past drama and stupid shit I have done is all left behind and no reminders of it. I know there is that saying "Wherever you go, there you are" and that your problems still follow you no matter where you are. It is true...but it is also a mindset. But guess what, my first morning I woke up in Hawaii and started anew, I certainly didn't dignify a single thought to my "previous life" except for maybe being thankful I was no longer a part of it. It was a new day at the start of a new life. And now here I am in a new adventure in another country not even missing Hawaii. Here I go again, much like the Whitesnake song.
Something's got to be done. We can't go on like this.
