I do like to ingest (legal) sense-shocking substances. Hot, spicy foods. Very strong coffee. Strong, highly alcoholic beer and high-proof spirits. Very rarely do I imbibe to excess. I like my senses to be jolted, not obliterated. There are some illegal substances I have not tried yet that I would like to experience before I die.
I also like shocking, extreme ideas from all over the spectrum. I very much enjoy both Michael Moore and Ann Coulter. I don't know how many people can say that. It doesn't mean I necessarily agree with Moore and Coulter. It's just that, where many people feel outrage about these folks, I find myself being extremely engaged and entertained.
I enjoy the moderate pain that is an inevitable part of contact in pick-up basketball.
I think I need all of these strong sensations to verify that I am not dead yet.
