Вопрос дня: Почувствуй себя королем

If you could rule any country, which country would you choose, and why?

Свою - Латвию. Посадила бы многих чиновников в тюрьмы, разобралась бы с экономикой, медициной и прочими делами. А то, честно говоря, смех смехом (а без смеха на то, что творят наши политики, смотреть нельзя, иначе помрёшь от грусти), но периодически вскипает благородный гнев и хочется брутально всех к стенке поставить. Особенно, когда закрывают больницы в городах, оставляя только травмпункты с фельдшерами, когда с мира по копейкам собирают на операции детям, которые почему-то только в Германии и других странах делают, когда толстощёкие политики учат жить и говорят про то, что "всем не поможешь", ага, потому не помогают никому. Конечно, до состояния героя Дугласа из "С меня хватит!" ещё далеко, но порой очень надоедает такое наплевательство на людей.

What's the longest book you've ever read? What's the shortest?

Тут без вариантов - "Война и мир" - Лев Толстой, а самая маленькая - скорее всего "Маленький принц" - но по значительности своей она, наверно, больше чем "Война и мир".

Вопрос дня: Почувствуй себя королем

К чему мечтать напрасно:
Смогу быть - не смогу,
Ведь я и так прекрасно
Устроился, живу.

Пожалуй, все ж признаю:
Власть - афродизиак.
Хоть им я обладаю,
Но ... меньше. Это факт.

Да, управлять страною
Не собираюсь я,
Пока люд сам собою
Не выберет меня.

Как женщину, власть силой
Уж точно, не возьму -
Чтоб быть и жить мужчиной,
Насилье ни к чему.

Прикинуть если здраво -
Есть планы у меня.
И Президентом, право,  
Готов стать позже я.

Writer's Block: Time to move on

If you had to relocate to another city, what would you miss most about the place you're leaving behind.

I have actually had to do this several times. The first time in my adult life was when I had to leave Jacksonville, FL, where I had grown up. I was 4 when my mom moved me there and left around 23 when my husband was restationed. I don't miss it much to be honest. It is mostly the people I miss . I have friends I have known since I was 5 that I still keep in contact with and I miss them all. I especially miss one friend in particular, who was the man of honour at my wedding. I miss hanging out with him on  a lazy afternoon, or having him over to dinner. Honestly, he is more like family to me than my 1/2 brothers were. He was always there for me when I needed him, ready to kick my ass if it needed it. But honestly other than people and a few restaurants I don't miss it.
The second time I had to relocate was from San Diego to Hawaii. Yes, technically I moved to paradise, but living here is different than vactioning. The best way to cope with it I have discovered is to pretend that this is not my real life. I will resume real life in a few years. Not that I don't like the friends I have made or enjoy the experiences my husband and I have had and will have here...I just kind of hate it. Not because it is a terrible place, but San Diego was the first PLACE I ever really felt connected to. I miss the diversity of San Deigo, the architectural beauty that was the skyline of downtown. I miss Balboa park with it's plethora of museums. I miss being able to walk downtown, and catch a trolley if I wanted out of the heart of the hussle and bussle of the gaslamp, which I rarely really did. I miss the sights, and sounds, and smells. I miss the complex diversity of cultures that didn't blend so much as live side by side. I miss everything. I miss the way the scenry changed depending on where you were. How we could drive up to Jullian in the winter and see snow, but come home and go to the beach. I miss the slight chill in the air during winter, and watching as things renewed themselves in spring. I miss it so much sometimes I cry, and just can't even think about it sometimes. When I think of home as a physical place, San Diego, not Jacksonville, is where is where I think of.
Though I have the most important person with me most of the time, he is in the Navy, and forced to leave me behind from time to time, and so here is never truly home because I know he will go. I do not resent him or the Navy for this fact, it is not their fault that my wander's soul lost part of its self to San Diego. I make it sound as if San Diego were a lover, and in some ways I guess she was. I felt often as if San Diego embraced me as I did her. My feelings of guilt for loving a city are overwhelming, and that I have the capacity in my heart to care so much about a place is baffling. I fear for her; the changes she will under go in my abscence, worry I will not find her as I left her when my husband and I find our way home. When we first arrived she was frightening and yet thrilling. My fear abated quickly as I learned my way around, but she never lost the thrill; there were always new adventures to be had. I will be forever grateful that I had my steadfast and loving husband by my side to share her with me. I wonder though sometimes if it was not his happiness there that I miss most of all. I wax overly poetic, I know, but I words are a useless tool to explain the love my husband and I have for San Diego.
When we leave here I speculate I will miss again the food, but also North Shore. North Shore is the closest I seem to get to the same peace in my soul I had in San Diego, and there is no denying how beautiful Hawaii can be when you get away from places like Waikiki and Honolulu, where man has mucked up the artistry of nature. When driving to North Shore you leave behind the unsightly uninventive skyscrapper hotels, and gain a closeness with nature you can only understand if you have been here. The majesty of nature, and knowing how violently Hawaii came to be, absolutely awe inspiring.

If you could rule any country, which country would you choose, and why?

Если бы мог, эх, мечтать не вредно. Видимо из всех стран, я большее предпочтение бы отдал стране, где вся территория которой окружена океаном, небольшая по площади, однако независима от любых государств. И не только своим государственным суверенитетом, но и в плане экономики, развития сельского хозяйства, информационной инфраструктуры. В стране старался бы развивать туристический бизнес, особенно в связи с нахождением в океане, и жарким климатом. Полная независимость от всех государств с их проблемами, катаклизмами, войнами, террактами - обычная жизнь граждан со своей идеологией, религией, нравственными соображениями. Не жизнь, а сказка - ведь в этой стране, не было бы проблем с наркотиками, алкоголем, и прочими болезнями, которые то и дело охватывают весь мир.

Truthfully, I know I will make a good life wherever I go. SoCal is nice, and I've lived here all my life...but really, the only thing I could see myself deeply missing would be the ocean. As long as I'm within a couple hours of an ocean (not a lake...an ocean), I think I could live just about anywhere. Live on the edges or not at all.

If you could rule any country, which country would you choose, and why?

I woud prefer Iceland --
(1) it is now a republic , and I'll turn it to monarchy, perhaps restituting the sovereign rights of the Danish Crown, which I do respect. I also have a sympathy to this tribe and land.
(2) The country is relatively compact and my probable mistakes may be evident enough -- I may be not an ideal manager.
(3) I do not want to be an usurpator of any monarchy, incl. the Russian one. There is a legitimate Posessor  of It -- HIH Maria Vladimirovna, for instance a kinsperson of the Danish Dynasty.
(4)Moreover, I might had revive the religiousity there -- of course with the priviledges to the Orthodox Church of Russia.
(5) The next reason is the following:  I do not trust to most of my Russian compatriots -- that's why I'll prefer to be at some distance to them.

Я предпочелъ-бы Исландiю --
(1) сейчасъ это республика , а я повѣрнулъ-бы ея къ монархiи, м.б. реставрировавъ суверенные права Датской Короны , которую я уважаю. Я также имѣю симпатiю и къ данной народности и  странѣ.
(2) эта страна сравнительно компактна и мои возможныя ошибки будутъ достаточно очевидны -- м.б. я не идеальный менеджеръ.
(3) Я не желаю быть узурпаторомъ никоторой монархiи въ т.ч. Россiйской , у Нея есть законная Обладательница, ЕИВ Марiя Владимiровна, кстати родственница Датской Династiи.
(4) Более того, я смогъ-бы возрождать тамъ религiозность -- естественно съ привиллегiей для Русской Православной Церкви.
(5) Слѣдующее соображенiе таково: я не довѣряю большинству моихъ соотечественниковъ и оттого предпочту быть отъ нихъ на некоторомъ разстоянiи.

я бы выбрала Россию потому что это моя Родина.И мой стишок на эту тему:
как хорошо из стран далеких

увидеть вновь глаза знакомых
и разговором снять усталость от дорог
я расскажу тебе как мир прекрасен
чего здесь нет да и не может быть
что не хватало мне там русских сосен
и что-то все мешало мне спокойно жить
пусть хороши края земли ненашей
народ его красив ,да труд его велик
но нет роднее ивушки поникшей
да на речной воде вечерний лунный блик
как не хотелось бы жить жизнью иностранной
и как бы ни манил тот импортный пирог
но русская душа не терпит расставаний
жить буду на земле что даровал мне бог.

Writer's Block: Does this job come with a crown?

If you could rule any country, which country would you choose, and why?

LiveJournal, I think you're trying to start a war, xD!

But if I could rule a country, I don't want it to be one already established. Nah. Let's start fresh. I live in America and while it does have its faults, I do happen to like living here. But a lot of other countries are much more peaceful than our own. What can I take from them to help my own country become successful?

Hm. Truth? Diversity seems to be a major downfall for us. We have unrest amongst ourselves the people because of that. While other countries are fighting the government, we're fighting each other. But would it be wrong to shut the doors to others? Quite. So, what do you do? Create a very unique language that's hard to learn; that helps ensure that we're about the only ones that live there! Japan is my greatest example. Learning Japanese, you not only have to learn a new spoken language but several new written languages as well. It makes it very difficult for an outsider to pick up the customs and languages and join the country because Japanese is not the world's language, as English is. It's specific to only one part of the world.

So, to help my people, I think that's what I'd do. I'd create a language that's still teachable but isn't so easy to grasp. Sounds hateful, but I think it's the easiest way I can help solve civil unrest. Anyone and everyone can join the country but we all know that you blend in much easier when you know the laws of the land. You're respected much more.

Of course, it's possible that if my country is successful, the language would spread to more parts of the world so other people could come there. I keep using Japan as my example because that's how I'd want it to be. They're very successful now due to everything they offer in the entertainment industry (which thus got people interested in the culture itself) and yet still, they have this major language barrier that makes it hard for just anyone to actually live there.

I wonder what product my country would try to establish to make itself known. Something everyone could use...I dunno. We could go hybrid. And instead of paying to much for hybrid cars, my philosophy has always been that more people will buy something if you make it cheaper, thus earning your money back for the expensive price it cost to make it. In fact, there won't even be an option for gas cars. Fuck that. Everyone will drive with water and vegetable oil! Nuclear energy is dangerous but still a safer alternative than coal or other fossil fuels so that'd be another energy source besides wind, water and solar. With these sources coming from nature herself, it should be a little more affordable for everyone. Again, more people will jump on the bandwagon if you don't tax the shit out of their pockets.

As for a leader of government. America was supposedly founded on the belief that "we the people" held all the power. Well, I think we all see that that's gotten a bit...off track now. A central ruler might still be necessary but I'd actually like to cut that out and let each division (I'll call them divisions instead of states or counties) choose their own leaders. If that division decides it wants to have a president, then that's that division and their laws of the land does not cross over into the next division (for the record, there will be no counties or states either. there are only division names...and there's only going to be about five for the entire nation. You're only part of a division, that's it). Everyone in the division that's old enough and able to will play a part in voting for the laws in their location.

For my own division, I'd take this a step further and I'd also encourage people to challenge or create new laws as well. There might be a set code though of laws that must be abided by at all times (do not kill, rob, or otherwise harm another person, yadda yadda...) but I don't want everything so stiff as to where there is never any room for change.

Also with that said, I know for absolute certain, I'd have legal homosexuality in my division. I wish I could eradicate religion too but I know that's not really possible. A lot of people need to believe in something or else they sort of lose it, lol! But with religion comes differing opinions and mini laws that might not gel well with the larger common laws. I think...I actually would cut out religion. If there was ever a way to just take people and scrub their minds clean of all knowledge of religion, I would. You'd do things because they were simply right (because they helped to benefit others and even yourself) and you wouldn't do things simply because they were wrong (they hurt other people, yourself included and you should always treat people the way you want to be treated. Plus, love yourself so don't harm yourself...either physically or with drugs/alcohol).

Ahh, that brings up another good point. Could I have a country with no smoking? Like, seriously. There's just not a more obvious killer than cigarettes. They don't help anything and clearly, clearly kill! Why the hell is it legal?! I'm not an for weed but it is indeed true that it's never killed anyone and yet cigarettes easily kill thousands of people every year. And yet so much money is going to try to stop the production of weed and not the production of tobacco. I don't get it.

That too brings a good point. How do you protect the boarders of your country from smuggled drugs? Well, that's a bit impossible, nearly every country has its drug problems, some less or more than others. I say that's when you establish extremely harsh laws toward those caught with drugs in the country. The classic question of 'Is it better for a king to be feared or loved" comes into play here. I say a ruler can be both. Show the people that you're kind-hearted but that you're not one to be fucked with. Drugs might be acceptable in other divisions but not in mine. Lose the tip of your pinky every time I catch you with a narcotic. I'm not certain about drinking yet although it's seriously up there with the cigs.

Okay, I could go on forever about this (whoo, it takes a lot just to plan how to rule a country, XDD!). I'll stop here for now but I do like where this was going ^_^

Writer's Block: Tobacco road

Would you want your city to outlaw smoking on public streets? Why or why not?

This is a pretty emotionally charged issue for me. The question in my mind is less would I want to and more would it actually be practical to do it. I am a non-smoker. When I see people smoking on the street my gut reaction is like "Eww . . . gross. I wish they would stop or go somewhere else." In a perfect world, I would say that smoking wouldn't even exist, much less be a problem. But this is not a perfect world, and in some things there must be some compromise.

That being said, it's really impractical to outlaw it. There are people who allow others to smoke so long as it's not in the house. If we get rid of smoking on the streets what place will there be for them to smoke at all? Many businesses are beginning to outlaw it in their establishments. If it was outlawed, where would they be able to go to smoke?

I would also rather that my tax dollars are paying policemen for solving actual crimes instead of arresting people for what really is a minor annoyance. There are all kinds of people that I would rather stop from roaming the streets than the person whose only crime is taking a smoke break on the streeet. There are definitely enough murderers, poisoners, blackmailers, thugs, drug dealers, and stolen car refurbishers to go around.

Hahaha! Oh, Livejournal, you're kidding me, right?

Green. Green stuff. Having trees around, and parks, and benches, and grass next to the curbs. Having flowers planted, instead of just in pots standing around signs.

Also, not being stared at. That's a one right there. Being able to go out my door and not have to translate. Being able to go around and not be solicited to buy one of everything, O Rich Foreigner Who Has Money, and also not be talked about while I'm walking by. Being able to go out and just be chill, another person, and not The Most Interesting Thing On The Street.

But really, green stuff. Not it being city city around me, bring able to go outside on a gorgeous fucking day like this, find a grass patch under a tree and lie down with my Kindle. Go walking and smell wet dirt and leaves, swamp smell and flowers and cut grass, not iron and rust and the penecillin factory.

If you had to relocate to another city, what would you miss most about the place you're leaving behind.

This question is proof that God reads LJ.

Just saying.

 

That said, to answer the question.

 

I will relocate. And again after that. And then I'll travel a lot and probably move a time or two still. But eventually it will become less out of desire from necessity and more a relaxed interest in moving, upgrading, or retiring. Settling. All that security stuff adults talk about. 

In the past, I have missed memories. Not people. People never leave (unless we cut them out) in which case there was either a reason we did so permanently or a reason we did so temporarily, and one must either rejuvenate the contact or grow apart from it. Been there, done that, people aren't the problem.

Places are. Places with memories where the energies of the place linger in my heart and soul, and either weaken or empower me. For better or worse, those images follow me into dreams and occasionally are capable of retaining such power as to regress me to a person I used to be for a period upon waking, or even empower me with the lost emotion of an old place in my history.

I'll miss the places I have walked. I will miss my garden. I will miss the forest. I will miss the path past the gazebo. I will miss it because I rooted myself here for power, and until i find another place to root my heart, soul, and powers, I will feel a hole for some time. But so long as what is to be gained overrides the loss, the move is always worth it.

There are always new places to be discovered, each more meaningful than the last.

I left the town I literally grew up in for fifteen years straight. I went to five different schools throughout the course of my academic life, college included (even if I never did finish). My first job was there, so was the second. The friends in the bible study group from the church I used to go to, the marine base the bus would drop us off in the afternoon, the old neighborhood we all used to goof off in, the old WWII neighbor dad was friends with years ago and the desert sunsets I would sometimes come across at the end of the day had I stepped outside at that moment. I did and lived *everything* in that damned forsaken desert foxhole and miss it to bits. I simply took the opportunity to move to another place and explore a different part of the country.

In short, I miss everything about Arizona. I'll go back there one day, but I'm already dug in with a decent paying job and situated with new friends (not that it's a bad thing, of course!). One day, though.

Pff. 'Move on,' whatever. Sometimes, it pays to not casually discard your own roots.

I actually did relocate to a different city and state. I lived in Massachusetts for 28 years then in 2008 I moved to Kansas..I miss everything about my old home. I live in the middle of nowhere nothing is ever open past 9pm and there is nothing to do here.

If you had to relocate to another city, what would you miss most about the place you're leaving behind.
The small town atmosphere. The local county fair, free tuesday municipal band concerts in june, a cheap movie theater, walking into the local stores and being treated like I'm their friend even if they don't know my name. Just the quiet, happy, sleepiness of this town.

If you had to relocate to another city, what would you miss most about the place you're leaving behind.

I would miss almost everything. I'd miss the not having to drive everywhere. I'd miss all of my friends, and nabes and even the aquaintances. I'd miss the river. I'd miss all of the things that happen, the events, the festivals...I'd miss the surrounding area. I'd miss the church where I go. I moved house so very often before here that I hope that I never have to leave here. 

Ecks Oh!

Probably my roommates.

I mean, we don't hang out all the time, but we have good talks, and they've been unbelievably kind and understanding while the economy and my inability to integrate into life here has been kicking my ass, probably the most understanding coupl'a guys one could hope to live with. (Even though I feel worse about it every day...)

I don't really like anything about San Francisco, so there's nothing specific to this city that I'd miss. Maybe the weather. The weather's pretty good.

If you had to relocate to another city, what would you miss most about the place you're leaving behind.

I live in the country.  It's fifteen minutes by car to anything resembling "civilization".  In the summer, it's too hot to walk anywhere (except when it's raining); in the winter, snow and ice frequently make it hard to get anywhere.

I love cities.  I love being around people I'd never meet in the countryside, I love being able to walk or ride the train anywhere, I love the sounds of civilization, I truly love the lights at night.

But at night, if you go out back behind my house, you can see the stars.

I've never seen the stars in a city.

Вопрос дня: Переезд

If you had to relocate to another city, what would you miss most about the place you're leaving behind.

За свежим ветром с океана, за шумом большого города, за "все рядом", за обилием русскоязычных и за "русскими" магазинами, за космополитическим и космическим духом этого города.   И за видом из своего окна.

Еслиб мне пришлось переехать в другой город, это была бы и другая страна, перемена места в России большого результата не изменит.
А в нормальной демократии, я бы скучал только об одном. О возможности свободно ходить по просторам куда угодно .

There are many pluses to this area, but many more minuses. I think the thing I'd miss most isn't anything in particular, but rather the abstract concept of my son's childhood home. Leaving the place where he grew up - the house, the neighborhood, the school, the people - would be the hardest.

If you could rule any country, which country would you choose, and why?

Hawaii-I know it's not a country all on its own but if the US could give it to me, I would be very happy. All the sun and beaches I could ever want and people who are laid back and relaxed = the perfect place to rule! Never been there but it is the No. 1 destination holiday-wise for me!
