i got a last minute sleeper car from vienna to geneva once and it was the least comfortable sleep i've ever had. it was a six-bunk car and the bunk was so small i had to bend my knees and lay on my side. i literally did not fit in it laying on my back, and i'm a little taller than average but not unusual. also it was the top bunk and poorly ventilated so it was hot as hell. so, don't get the cheap sleeper car in austria i guess.

cities are great. they're where all the people and stuff are.

small towns and the country are great. nice pace of life, closer to nature.

suburbs are in between and i 100% seriously think that they are at the root of a lot of social rot

i was pretty intimidated about going to the gym when i first started but in practice everybody just ignores each other when they're there. if you can somehow force yourself to try it, i think it would be worth it.

Portland is fun, and not far from some good surf. never been to a strip club there but according to my friend who loves strip clubs, Portlandís are among the best

e: missed the new page. canít believe I missed 69

Truman Peyote

there used to be a strip club in the suburbs here called ďmugs and jugsĒ that was dry so that they could admit 18-year-olds. I always thought that was pretty deranged

e: drinking age here is 19, so it doesnít even seem like a good market to target

black bears are cool because you get all of the good parts of cool and big bears but they also scare so easily that you're nevr really in danger as far as i can tell

they are generally a bunch of cowards but mothers are very dangerous when their cubs are around. the two I saw were a good distance away, though
