I like dressing in dark clothes donning a black ski mask, going out into the night tapping lone walkers on the back and saying BOO!!!very relaxing it is.

Well? its a improvement on what I used to do to lone walkers.

20 years ago, the air force had a full-time Shrink on staff at the flying school. His duties were to help the lads through the stress of the pilot course, officer training, and just being away from home, family and friends for the first time.

One cadet went to see the Shrink because he couldn't sleep, with the worry about tests and bad grades and such. Shrink said to him:
"After you finish your studies tonight, go for a run around the oval and get good and sweaty. Then come back to the blocks, have a hot soapy shower, jump into bed and pull yourself."

Well, all the cadets could justify It after that - "The shrink told me to do it!":E

Cooking a meal is a great stress reliever.

Agreed only partially, it depends very much on what, when and for whom you are cooking. ;)

Some cooking has been known to be quite stressfull :
- fugu preparation (http://www.kazsushi.com/newsletter4.htm) in Japan (sepuku if your client dies :rolleyes: )
- heard about Monsieur Vatel (http://www.encyclopedia.com/html/v/vatel-f1r.asp) ?

Ne t'inquiets pas Bre901!

I do not intend to go near any deadly fish nor prepare fodder for Royalty so I think I'm safe!

Well sometimes even the family (or part of it, MIL anyone ?) can be stressing too :uhoh:

Blow things up, make up a sh!t list, drink yerself stupid, have a good shag, pick a fight with a small guy, shout at the cat, leave one morning and don't come back for two days, destroy something with a hammer, smash lightbulbs off the wall (big long ones are the best, they make a satisfying pop), start a fire or go shoot bunny rabbits. All great for stress relief

There you go. You had to go and use the MIL card.

I have found Ozzy's therapy sessions very beneficial.

I was coping well with stress, not having visited this place for a while.

Then I see he is up to his inane nonsense again on this Forum and others.

I think I need a packet of Capstan Full Strength to help me relieve my stress now .......... or maybe a holiday with my beloved family in Canada. Anyone know of any airlines flying to there which have smoking sections ??

Pick up my sticks and bash the hell out of the drum kit. Jerricho, you want to borrow them to bash the hell out of you know who....?:E

My Stress Relievers in no particular order:

1. Strip & rebuild an engine/car (tools, engines, oil, grease, no birds.....heaven?)
2. Beat out a few tunes on my guitar or piano
3. Smoke a joint & have a glass of Penfolds Bin 28
4. Lance the GF with the old pork sword
5. Take my classic car for a burn
6. Sketching/painting

Don't try them all at the same time... It's very nearly impossble :cool: :ouch: :E

Ever try floating on your back in deep water in a swimming pool (presuming you can swim?) staring at the ceiling, preferably when it ain't busy. Used to do it alot, found it deeply relaxing. :ok:
