Bay Area trip-planning site. Covers public transit, traffic, ridesharing, biking, and more. I'll be putting it to the test next week, when I head to the Bay Area for a few months. Hope it's iPhone friendly…
Steve Pavlina's take on gender roles. Interesting. I don't agree with it all, but food for thought.
Steve Pavlina on not being afraid of pain: "Donâ€™t try to grow a big callous around your heart to protect yourself from getting hurt. That will only make you cold and callous. If you disconnect from your heart, you disconnect from everything. Youâ€™ll rob your life of all its delicious flavor."
…And on marriage: "I very much like the notion of long-term, committed relationships. I think long-term relationships are wonderful. I just think marriage is a poor vehicle for expressing them. …The institution of marriage is simply too far out of sync with the realities of human relationships."
And on people's reactions to him trying polyamory: "Itâ€™s tough having someone question the way youâ€™re living your life, nudging you to consider alternatives, even if itâ€™s done indirectly. That can feel very uncomfortable. I know because Iâ€™ve been on the receiving end many, many times. The worst thing anyone can possibly do to you is to raise your awareness of something you donâ€™t feel ready to face."
