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?

There are two traveler schools of thought: grab the pack and go, and extensive preparatory research....You can guess which one I'm buried in, at the moment....

Welcome!!!!
So I had a bunch of free Metrolink tickets, so yesterday first I took Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, then used them to go all the way from Oceanside to Simi Valley (covering 150 miles in a day). I decided to stay with my SO again a couple of days as I came down pretty sick with cold and also need to buy some gear for the record breaking cold in CA. Soon enough I’ll head to Ventura and hitch from there!
Just over a month and a half until I plan to hit the road here in New Zealand. Figuring out what I need to store and what I need to sell. Anyone thats currently travelling got an Instagram? Looking to follow some fellow misfits in the mean time!
