    I don't think you can make a blanket statement like that for something that turns out to be rather subjective.

    Listen to death metal... That always relaxes you...

    Its all in the explosive up-beat snare hits...




    But I would suggest taking a drive, go on a picknic with the wife...

    Who know's? You might come back with a really bad sunburn. :ninja:

    No, no, see, that's a given. That's not a relaxer, that's background noise/routine. I always assume these threads have an unwritten byline "Besides porn."
     
  7. I stand corrected :D Duh!!!! You know it should be stickied in the rules: All responses to posts should assume that the answer is "besides internet porn" :D :D :D

    A solitary walk on the pier, accompanied only by a tobacco pipe and a notebook, always does me well. Lake Michigan is excellent.
     
  12. Punching bag, hitting things helps alot.
    meditation, what's more relaxing then being calm?
    drinking, don't be a wuss, if it is less then 40% alcohol it isn't drinking :smug:
    oh or non internet porn :eyebrow:
     
  13. all I can say is I was arrested for having the relaxation equipment. :crying: Won't say much more. Except in the end I got off because of an illegal search. :D :D

    Folks, can we keep the drug references to a minimum?

    I do yoga, walk at the beach and go on long drives.

    Long, long walks -- super-early AM, preferably rurally. Go out when it's still pitch black outside, and don't back come in until your calf muscles are screaming and you're half-blind from the sunlight.

    Play video games. Things like Def Jam: Fight For New York (worst concept, but the surprisingly amazing story mode and general game play make it the best fighting game I've ever played) and Battlefield 1942 work at getting out frustration. Don't try RPGs -- inevitably, you'll miss a key or cast the wrong spell at the wrong time because you're so frustrated, and then you'll kick in the TV, because you just messed up your whole save file. And then you won't have a TV.
     
  16. +1 A good workout can do wonders...once you're done, you're too tired to stress out!

    1- workout
    2- a full hot bathtub with odored foam, something to read, to drink, and if you prefer, something to smoke. Note: doing this doesn't mean you are gay. no.
    3- playing samurai shodown against some guy in the world over kaillera server.
    4- praying
    5- music. ozric tentacles, tortoise, carlo domeniconi, sade (this doesn't mean you are gay either) .. etc. any kind of unisonic music, smooth jazz and chillout are better choices

    preferrably all of the above in order.

    OK, just making a joke, I thought that picture with the dog looked somewhat horrifying and I have no idea what he has in his mouth.

    I usually just sleep or watch TV. I go 3 times a week to the gym, which helps, too.
