    10 days? Ouch man, I need a day off, no amount of money or overtime is worth that. Ever thought about quitting? I always do. I'm thinking about just putting my stock in bitcoins and moving to the woods or becoming my ancestors and embracing my viking heritage.

      Well, ten days on still gave me four days off and I got a surprisingly large volume of tasks done on those meager days. I have returned refreshed, sun-kissed and...caffeinated. And yes to the rest. I just did move to the woods, obtained a gun, started studying survivalism, etc. Survivalists have no idea what food is.

        I never like going back after long stretches of days off though ;_; It always feels so bad man, cause not doing anything feels so good.

        Man, sounds ideal to me. I wouldn't mind foraging for carbs...

          It's kind of fun. So far I've been digging up dandelions. But, gah, the gun people I read up on are into MRE's, these pseudo-food sludge buckets of anti-food.

          I also love all the doing nothing. Seems it's a lost art for many. People always want to know what I "did".

          I'd rather eat a ton of bananas and be bloated and constipated than eat that fake stuff any day! (Stay on bananas! Stay on bananas!)

            I had one of those for a hiking trip just as an experiment, so fucking nasty, I had to stop hiking and take a long 2 hours to digest that inedible brick. It took that long just to get that shit out of my system, and it probably still lingered for days afterwards.

            Yeah, and when you say you did nothing they look at you like you're crazy. "Oh, no girlfriend!? Don't go clubbing?" etc;

            Where bananas roam free. Gotta say, there is probably a lot of edible plant matter out there. Dandelions actually taste pretty good too.

              Doing nothing is a lost art. Embracing the banana however seems to be still going strong.

                Bananas are perfect as they are. Yellow, without or with few freckles. Encased in the peel, relatively clean food. Why would anyone want to mess with them?

                  I only eat ripe bananas. Green ones give me heartburn if uncooked.

                    Pray tell. I have all of this available in my kitchen, and I have never even thought to dare make yogurt myself. I am intrigued. Do share.

                      Me too. Green ones for some reason make my lips/throat/tongue swell up a little bit, too.

                      No problem with the yellowish brown ones.

                        Yeast will ferment a mash of ripe bananas into alcohol. It'll take a fair number of steps to turn that into something drinkable, though.
