    1. I had/have Lymes Disease (depending on what you read about eradicating it) IV bag hooked up daily for a month hopefully did it.
    2. I'd like to try a "Doug Coil - Rife machine" and see if I get a herxheimer reaction.
    3. I learned to ride a unicycle around 8 years old and never forgot, every 10 years or so I get a chance to ride one. Maybe I'll buy one someday.
    4. I love mustard pizza with bacon.
    5. I want to go on a Star Clipper Cruise !!
    6. I wish Austrian Economics was taught in school and John Maynard Keynes went into ballroom dancing.
    7. I quit smoking for 7 years with the help of wellbutrin and went back wtf. Hoping to quit again soon. (EDIT: QUIT SMOKING JULY 7TH, 2013. Read Allen Carr's book which I learned about from another Thread on this site )
    8. I work pretty close to Dave Parsons from the Primal Blueprint book success stories.
    9. Ron Paul cured my apathy.
    10. The Law by Frederic Bastiat should be a mandatory read by everyone.

    3. Do it! Unicycles are badass
    7. I have heard that 5-HTP can help. It's an amino acid (pre-cursor to serotonin) that helps with depression & anxiety, but I've read that it can help with withdrawal symptoms. Give it a Google?

    I pay taxes in a school district where the superintendent is paid a higher salary than our governor totalling over $200k a year including benefits, and dozens of teachers (and custodians!) make upwards of $100k and more, plus benefits and pension plans with the average being in the $70k's. Most of them are overpaid for their performance, but the whole system is wasteful and inefficient. These salaries are unacceptable for the results they yield. Private institutions would be held accountable for their mediocrity and high prices; this district and many like it in NY state have next to no accountability. Instead we reward the underperformance with nearly half of the year off and cushy retirement packages. This isn't the nationwide norm by any means, but I do think many teaching positions are glorified babysitting positions and the children aren't able to customize their learning due to the low standards of curriculum and teacher qualifications. We don't have a spending problem in education, we have a management problem, which is why I believe it should be privatized and optional.

    Lol, yes! He was my gateway to voluntaryism.

    As a voluntaryist I can't agree with the mandatory part, but would recommend it! Haha
