Teach, Learn, Share
First, let's share some quotes:
"Anti-social behavior is a trait of intelligence in a world full of conformists." Unknown
"He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither." - Benjamin Franklin
"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." Mark Twain
"What the public expects and what is healthy for an individual are two very different things." -Esther Williams
"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things" Henry Miller
"If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal." - Paulo Coelho
"Anti-Americanism is reflection of Europe's inability to become more creative and more free" - Nikola Samadzic, historian
"Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology. He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar's gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart through the world. There in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with a real knowledge of the human soul." Carl Gustav Jung
"There shall be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars." - Jesus Christ, Luke 21:25
I can teach you about psychology, various social science subjects, astrology, general travel logistics, etc.
It would be nice to learn some bushcraft skills.
