Random question: what do you do when a homeless, young, healthy guy begs you for money or food in the supermarket parking lot? Do you ever give them something, say no, lie that you'll buy them food only to hope you'll sneak out without them seeing you (lol), ask the supermarket employees to call the police?
Have you done this?
top 3 things to do today, do you guys count your workout in it also?
from the last few days, I became lazy, now considering adding workout in the must-do list.
On the homeless posts above...
Last week I was out in the snow here and saw a really cool tree covered in snow I wanted to take a photo of me with. The only thing to leave my phone on was a timber unit that also had a trash can built into it. There was snow everywhere else so I was trying to set my phone up on the side of the timber unit thing to get a pic using a timer.
Anyway a minute goes by as I was finding it hard to do and a look up and this posh looking lady was walking towards me - only a few meters away. She looks at me and I look at her, she then looks at the trashcan and then back at me - and she presumes I am homeless haha.
She instantly does this kinda "uh oh" look cause it is just the two of us on this walking path and she turns 180 and starts walking off as fast as possible. Haha!
One other quite homeless story...
When I was living in Alberta Canada and working in the oil industry I came back to town after a long work rotation and saw a homeless guy searching in the dumpster near my house. I wanted to give him something so I looked around the truck and I had a $30 top quality ribeye steak that was in my freezer box that I hadn't eaten yet.
So I get out of the truck and walk over feeling all good about myself and I tell him "Hey man I got something for".
He climbs out of the trash dumpster and I try to hand him the steak and he takes one look and goes "what the f**k I am going to do with that" - and he jumps right back in to the dumpster without saying anything else and looking annoyed that I took up his time from doing whatever he is doing.
I laughed about it for quite a while afterwards cause it did make a lot of sense - he had zero ways to cook it and it was pretty much meaningless.
I do the workout, I do light to medium level workout atleast 6 days a week.If it isn't already a habit and if you aren't already in the shape you want to be then I think it should be there.
Health is always more important than wealth - in the short term term it is easy to forget but then long term it leads to massive regrets. You only need 30-60 mins a day to be in amazing shape and set yourself up for all the benefits.
What do y'all think of this article by Mr. Slowlane himself? Seems totally out of character for him: using margin to buy real estate.
Oh I worded my post poorly. It's not that they are forced by law. It's that this country is so far behind in everything that managers want to SEE YOU at your pc, otherwise they think you are not working.Add this to my never-ending list of "laws that shouldn't exist."
I mean he is the chosen one. I'm waiting for @thechosen1 to use Neo as his avatar so I can confuse him with @Jon LWhat's with the Luke Skywalker avatars? Did I miss something? (I don't watch any type of MSM news.)
Teaching the Slowlane is Fastlane, the duplicity never ceases to amaze me.
Well, it was Anakin, because that's why I picked the name. It was always my username for everything as a kid; I'm not being cocky, I just like Star Wars.
But I grew up a little and realized that Anakin is a completely horrible character and that Luke was the real chosen one, even though I don't find Mark Hamil very cool at all.
