    Dec 6 2012: Knowledge.

    Knowledge to me is what a fundamentalist theist believes is God.

    Dec 6 2012: Spliffs! I think it's the oral fixation more than anything.. and the feeling of smoke in my lungs. It just can't be beat! :)

    Dec 4 2012: Long walks on hills and mountains. Can't live without it.

    It's my 'decompression chamber', my fix of spiritual refreshment, my gym, and thinking space.
  • Dec 4 2012: I'm addicted to the company of my friends, or just any other friendly souls out there willing to spend their time to just enjoy life and my energy can cope with. so really, just positive people.
  • Dec 4 2012: I'm still "sometimes" play online RPG games like "Star Wars Old Republic".
    I love this universe, but i have family and i can't spend much time on it.
  • Dec 3 2012: Coffee. I gave it up twice, and keep coming back to it for the aroma and flavor.

    TED. I crave new viewpoints and ideas I would never think of by myself.

      Dec 4 2012: I would agree with the second portion of your comment. Because normally expanding ones mind is something that not all people would do on the regular. TED provides to the world the ability for all of us to expand our minds and viewpoints so that we do not have our blinders on to the expanding mind that our world is capable of in 2013 and beyond. I am addicted to TED!!
