Ha!  That's funny  cheesy

I work in fitness, I'm a Pilates instructor.  I interract with people I call 'gym rats', they're constantly exercising, usually in big gyms where there are mirrors everywhere.  So many of them just can't keep from looking at themselves in a mirror.  A friend of mine in particular, who has been a fitness instructor for many years (now she's become certified to teach classical Pilates like me), will have almost full conversations with me, all the while staring at herself in the mirror.  I don't think of it as vanity so much as the constant need to make sure she's sitting correctly, or pulling her abs in, whatever.  I don't look in the mirrors much, I don't want to worry about every little wrinkle I see nowadays  rolleyes cheesy

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

It comes from my thoughts on treadmills.  I can't stand them.  I'd rather be outdoors walking (I powerwalk, 4.5 to 5 mph, every day, for three miles or so), to me staying indoors on a treadmill is just like being a rat on a wheel.  evil
