Currently you’re a slave to your occupation, you’re worried about your financial situation. You have the desire to travel the world but you have a fear of the unknown. Forget about your savings, travel is the only thing that makes you richer.
All you can do is just stop thinking about it; just do it. When you land flat on your ass on the other side of the world you’ll begin questioning if you’ve made a mistake. When you’re riding a motorcycle from the north to south of Vietnam you’ll be wondering why you’ve never been travelling extensively before. When you’re climbing Everest Base Camp you’ll be questioning why you live in a city. When you’re getting a five dollar massage you’ll be wondering what you’ve been paying thirty times the price for. When you’re eating cuisine that invigorates the soul you’ll be stupefied. When you’re watching a lion crawl through the tall grass of the Okavango Delta you’ll get the perfect photo. When you’re drinking Belgian beer you’ll wonder why anyone drinks Budweiser. When you’re hanging out with Polar bears in Churchill you’ll wonder why we’re not looking closer at alternative energy sources worldwide. When you’re diving with sharks in the South Pacific you’ll realize Jaws was a terrible portrayal of such beautiful creatures. When you’re at Carnival in Salvador, Brazil you’ll wonder why you pay entrance to the clubs where you live. When you’re flying down the side of a volcano in Nicaragua on a sled so fast you can’t slow down you’ll know you did the right thing leaving home.
The list can go on and on and on. The world is far too big to be stuck in an office chair working for some bureaucratic bastards who care more about their bank statements than their employees. I’m going to have to quote Mark Twain here..
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
In the end, who knows.. Maybe you’ll end up marrying a Philippina and living on a white sand beach in the Visayas where your student loans will be a distant memory. Just let go and see what the world has in store for you. – solitaryman69
Two Korean men stand on the roof of a grocery store with rifles to prevent looters from entering the store. LA riots, April 30th, 1992
The Rodney King trial results were announced April 29th at 3:15 pm. A jury had found some police officers not guilty of beating Rodney King. (The beating was videotaped and widely broadcasted.) That afternoon and evening rioters had started looting and burning local stores. It got out of control and the LAPD pulled out of the area.
This photo was taken the next morning. The only way the business owners could defend their property was to do it by themselves. If they call 911, police would not respond to the area.
Here’s a video (skip to about 1:30) of a gun battle on the street
Nazi scientists testing the aerodynamics of a Messerschmitt Bf 109 E3, 1940
Powered by a Rolls-Royce Kestrel V engine, it had a maximum speed of 342 mph (550 km) and had a range of 410 miles (660 km). It was 28 ft 4 in (8.65 m) long with a wingspan of 32 ft 4 in (9.87 m). The aircraft was armed with 2 machine-guns and 2 20 mm cannons. Germany’s new Messerschmidt aeroplanes have been tested in the Spanish civil war. The pilots are pledged before they leave Germany never to let their planes fall into the hands of the enemy. Each pilot has orders to set fire to his plane if it is brought down or has to make a forced landing on enemy soil. Each plane has a special tank of inflammable matter that can be ignited at once for this purpose.
Boston Celtics – 8 Consecutive NBA Titles
Winning one NBA Title is impressive, but winning eight consecutive NBA Titles is astonishing. The Celtics dominated the NBA during the 1960s and won a championship every year from 1959-1966. When the Chicago Bulls (1996-1998) and Los Angeles Lakers (2000-2002) each won 3 championships in a row, it was a big deal. Yet neither of them came close to doing what the Celtics accomplished. With the NBA now in a salary cap system, there is too much parity across the league for a single team to go on an 8-year title run. Also, there is a lot of pressure on teams trying to repeat as champions. The Miami Heat are already feeling the heat and they have only won two in a row. Unless the NBA abolishes the salary cap and allows superstars to team up, the Celtics record will never be broken.
