    People love to complain about how people's heads are constantly in their phones despite doing it themselves. It mostly doesn't bother me unless it negatively impacts me and there is one place that it really drives me nuts: the grocery store. They are always crowded and some jerk blocking an isle, or worse, the cucumbers with their nose in the phone. Makes me real mad.

    I'm bored. Generally, not just right this moment.

    Feels like the big life choices (career, wife, kids etc.) have all been fully baked for years and are yielding diminishing marginal returns with each new one. Spending money is fun of course, but playing the bon vivant just left me fat and anhedonic -- with too many shoes.

    I also think spirituality is bollocks and drinking any more than I already do would be inadvisable. Not sure what the other options are?

    Your username fits you, OM.

    When I came to a similar conclusion I doubled down on the booze and things changed rapidly in new, exciting, and horrific ways. Your mileage may vary.

    Sounds like a midlife crisis. You just need to choose a cliche response.

    Pretty sure more consumption isn’t going to end your malaise. Maybe take a sabbatical or leave finance and operate a business for a few years?

    Or get a place in Tahoe and take the kids skiing more. And invite number9 to show you how to push through midlife.

    I never drink too much.
    There are three basic kinds of drunk man: the happy (also known as 'laughing'), the sad (also known as 'weepy') and the angry, which has a bad attitude towards the whole world and is very aggressive. I am of the third kind but I'm tall and thin, so being aggressive might result in severe harm.
    I don't restrain from drink for virtue but for prudence.

    In cases like these I always advise breaking bad. Try cooking some meth, getting in a turf war with a rival gang or joining an MC. The prospect of prison or certainty of violence is just the kick you need. Your family will thank you, trust me.

    Find a good garage in town. go in there with a box of doughnuts. meet the guys, and the customers. stand around,look at things. and ask them. what should i get?

    buy an honest basketcase of whatever is settled on. the cheaper the better.
    find your passion in the resurrection of something beautiful. the joy in progress and results. get as involved as possible.be a part of it. bond with it.

    become a "Car guy". because we are good folk. and all in the same boat.
    instant gratification, guaranteed.

    for a long time to come.

    A really good hooker. They stroke your ego, make you feel young again, and get the fuck out before morning
