Hi Fazc,

I should've stated that I live in a small town with a population of around 3000 people. Everybody really does know everybody. The people (I can't say too much as they're real people) in the cafe have been reading this book for the last four years. People who live in remote areas do one of two things, they get on with it, (being themselves/individual) or they try so hard to be part of a "city" lifestyle (being something they aren't/complex). People who live in a remote region will understand what I'm saying. I never judge a book by it's cover & I certainly do not view anyone/anything through a lense! Do you see where I'm coming from?

Back onto the topic in hand, it's great that people exercise for personal reasons. Enjoyment, self improvement & to be the best we can are basically the top three answers. Trying to fight the aging process by taking care of ourselves means that we're independent to ourselves. By being in control of ourselves, by being independent to ourselves, we really can keep doing "one more". Truly lovely stuff to hear...

& by being in the weight room we're certainly keeping ourselves out of trouble.

Maybe the oceans will turn to beer & the oxygen into marijuana smoke. Or maybe the banking sector will get destroyed & money will therefore be useless, meaning that humans can live as creative individuals with the opportunity to express themselves freely. I truly hope so, as long as I can still play music & lift weights!
