Public opinion?






Henceforth is personal opinion, expressed by this user:

Voting is just a way to marginalize discussion. In forums like stp nobody pays attention to the poll score, they read the posts and analyze the answers based on what they know of the posters.

If cursory people that aren't directly involved see the conversation, they gravitate to the poll as a short hand to understanding the weight of the discussion.

In a situation in which you can see the eyes of everyone involved there's no need to vote.

Is this a primal skill? Where is the balance? Being human means wrestling for that balance. How big is too big? Is diversity stronger than a mono cropping?

Happy seed day, sucka!
Heading back out again today. Gonna millaround the Rockies for another five days and then I’m headed east towards Chicago!
Hitching out of Coos Bay today. Goal is to get up to Newport, switch over to the I-5, then up to Portland by the day’s end.
Wow its been two years since i posted I've lived in a few cities since, but I'm living in santa fe now.
I am sorry for not updating! I ended up getting back on the road for REAL, leaving downtown LA via a bus to Barstow Friday night. Since then I have hitchhiked 5 rides, explored Flagstaff AZ, and am now near Albuquerque, NM. I’ve already learned so fucking much, made countless memories, met other tramps, ridden in a truck bed on the highway, and just been fucking blessed by the Universe.
Spending the night in Coos Bay. Hoping to be in Portland.
Just had 3 wisdom teeth pulled, my mouth should stop bitching all the damn time now... Pain meds? What're those
