    Well, my only response really is that other than the principles we differ on with the gun control debate. Most times, I have utterly no idea what your talking about with regards to US politics.

    For example...

    I have no idea what the equivilent is here in Australia, Liberal, Labour

    I have no idea what your talking about, NONE, Zip :) I don't even know what your left is?

    Ummm, 42? Same again, MSM...right....?

    Again, don't know what MSM is, hadn't heard the biker story?

    Well as this one is not overtly political, I understand what your saying. However the presence of Guns, I think you could rightly argue stress many out too.

    See, and I am not being nasty here. But many of your posts, particularly in our recent debate were highly political. For me, politics was irrelevant. It was merely my opinion on the principles themselves.

    So as a non US citizen, almost nothing in your previous post made any sense to me other than the last line.
    I was simply saying that your response itself would give stress to some with different political views. I made no claim to understanding US politics :)

    I guess I sleep if I feel stressed.

    Hard to worry with your eyes closed.

    My usual vitamins and a glass of milk does the trick. Turning off your phone and shutting off your internet modem is a good idea. If they can't reach you when you are dead, they shouldn't be able to reach you when you are sleeping.

    To a foreigner it is hard to understand:
    1. 90+% of academic political contributions go to the Democrat party.
    2. 90+% of Mainstream Media (MSM or newspaper and TV News) contributions go to the Democrat party.
    3. Ditto on the legal profession.
    4. The bureaucrazy:
    Which Party Receives the Most in Political Contributions from Federal Employees? : FedSmith.com
    The Postal Service is the only agency remotely close to apolitical.

    5. Only 1 in 267-333 psychologists self identify as a conservative (40% of the country is conservative).

    There is only one way this can happen: a complete lack of ethics and morals by the left. The contributions should be 50/50 and the conservative representation in all those areas should be 40% instead of damn close to zero.

    I am not disagreeing with you. But your constant inclusion of politics into almost every thread, makes it hard for anyone who is, 1. not in the US, and 2. Even if they are, not as interested in politics as you.
    Not sure how you can land a political discussion in a thread about stress.
    Most of us I suspect don't even know how to respond. I know I don't. The thing with politics is, someone as equally passionate as you but of a differing political view, may or may not shut you down. That's the thing with politics. Its of ten not a matter of correct, or incorrect. It is a matter of who can argue the best.

    Stress can bring on Panic Attacks and goodness knows I do not want anymore of them. So the less stress the better for me.

    It has been proven that people actually do need stress in their daily lives, in much the same way salt is vital to our existence. The problem is that most people get way too much stress just as most people eat too much salt.

    Well I guess if you look at it when you say 'people do need stress in their daily lives" it would be virtually impossible to get away from it wouldn't it. Average existence in life on a daily basic means the chances of getting stressed from mild to extreme will come at you usually sometime during your day. From finding you do not have enough milk for your cornflakes in the morning to nearly getting wiped out on the highway by some dill not watching what they are doing. Coming home to find that your toilet trained cat has crapped on the carpet then checking the mailbox to find numerous bills marked "Pay or else". So yeah fun times trying to dodge panic attacks. I guess its best of luck to us all and may the less stressed win.

    What are these excess sources of stress in your view or for you personally?

    I'm not a good reference for stress. I don't suffer from stress but rather enjoy it, and I am a carrier.

    What are the big sources of stress for you or which are the most problematic?

    I'm am considering opening a Dundee - Casual fight thread. So we take these discussions offline.

    On relevant subjects to an Alien/Unknown forum we seem to agree.

    Tell me more.

    Life in general is composed of parts.

    Which parts are bothering you?

    As a general observation: life sucks when you aren't pro-active. Problems drive you instead of you driving the problems. Being pro-active heads off problems before they show up on your doorstep.

    The problem with stress is that it escalates when you care. My observations are people who get very stresses are more empathic. People who don't are very black and white, (confident in their views) I doubt and question every thought. I over think everything. Were as if you are super confident ad just say, NO, point of view A, or occurrence B is wrong. You can file it accordingly.
    I am an extreme em path. So stress nearly kills me daily. it sucks.
