to do one push-up a day
1. House of leaves because it taught me that you don't need to make a book like a book for it to be a good book
2. Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy Which taught me that there can be Comedic Science Fiction
3. John Dies At the End It taught me that there can be unorthodox ways of telling a story and learning there are other takes on events
4. Snow Crash Which gave me a better way to look at the ability words have on a society as well as showing how two different worlds can be
5. Enders Game Taught me how to think like a kid who is able to understand adults but still have an imagination
No need, I have read the comic you are referring to. I probably worded it incorrectly in the first place to be honest. The point that I was trying to get across was that he might have had a desire in a particular person (Which is most likely because of the long time relationship with his boyfriend) and by doing that he became a part of a culture that he didn't believe in.
It's even evidenced in his outspoken-ness for the cause. The enthusiasm is directly related to the belief in the cause. Since he was trying to convince himself that he was a part of it, he tried harder than those who were actually a part of it.
This also is shown by his change in beliefs. His tenaciousness is unchanged, it's just the idea that he is trying to convince him self of is what's changed. He's still as outspoken as ever, but for a different idea.
Much like the writer of the article, I am not phased by his life style change, I am disturbed by his anger towards the group that he once defended.
This was a truly fantastic read. I appreciate the lengths the writer goes to figure out what happened to his friend.
I can see why he would change his life after the scare that happened with his heart, but I am unable to discern why he chose to take such a hard right turn and become the thing that he hated the most.
It's possible that, like how his old boss said, that he never really was gay in the first place. Just a young man who was entranced by an idea and once he was satisfied he was overcome with another idea and is right now perusing it.
I touched upon this in one of my earlier posts, tags should behave not only like a tag but also as a link to the relevant area of interest of a submission. and as rorifer pointed out, an actual menu of followed tags would be good.
If I had it my way, I would have hubski use tags like tumblr does.
I havn't been running competitively or anything but I learned while I was in the navy that moving your body and running can make you think more clearly and feel more in touch wit everything.
It's almost as though the quickness and fleeting contact with the ground makes you more in touch with it. Sort of like an absence makes the heart grow fonder type of thing.
