This device jams cell phone signals, imagine what it would be like to have a real conversation with another human being.

166 US Dollars and I could walk around enjoying humans again.

In a world where everyone thinks reality TV is real, this type of device would be real.

Illegal, maybe illegal, this is on the good manners high ground, nothing compared to the bad manners of people using cell phones.

Maybe I go Into Hiding

Maybe I go Into Hiding
There is a large expatriate internet site called,
http://www.escapeartist.com/

A few years ago, they were about the Art of Escaping the madness of the USA or something along them lines. Now, I would say it is a site to help expats who wish-they-never-purchased real estate to sell to un-suspecting people.

The site is a good site, has many informative links, however semi has stopped telling me how to escape and more about how to,
- Buy the USA in another country. -

I have felt myself taking a long slippery ride down a meandering road, and I now can see at the end of the road is what I have been trying to escape all my life. More or less the idea, I need to buy a car, get a job, work nine to five and go to the Mall.

I still believe marriage between man and women is great.

I have been considering or planning my escape again, how to distance myself from this world I despise. How to avoid the people in the word who are too busy, now I have learned, I also have to avoid tourist. They are exporting a nasty culture to every what used to be paradise on the planet. Travel has changed completely in the last 10 years, it is not the same.

Truly the only solution is to put my ear on the railway track, listen hard so the wayfinding signs. Try to listen to the quiet whispers of what is left of true backpackers, mixed in with what is now tourist walking around with backpacks. Find the gossip, the noise, the small truths where to find the places yet not conquered by the cell-phone culture.

In a way a new traveler of the planet has to become an explorer, a seeker of where to go, and tell each other how to escape. The true paradises on the planet are cheap, and hidden behind the noise made by drones called tourist.

I am not joking, I am in one of them epiphany days of life, where I can feeling myself getting up walking out the door. I Hobo works to travel, and how to not become the slave to the work is the escape.

There is so much in life to miss out on in life, and there is so little of life that needs tasted, there is a growing number of snake oil salesmen on the planet.

What is of good report in life is free, however sometimes it is fun to be a voyeur to see just how silly people can be.

I have been working for about three months on the internet in Bangkok and Manila, I will be extremely happy to say goodbye.

I have never spent this much time in cities, and I truly do not like peple who live in cities.

Social Marketing

Social Marketing
I would propose marketing of New Media like CNN, and the marketing of Products work opposite.

There is some quote about how a happy client will tell one person, while and unhappy client will tell 15 people.

This stops sales.

In the news media or social marketing world, I would propose that happy and informative comment is told to one, and essentially negative one is told to 15.

Therefore, this post, which has inherent value, has no comments.

While this one, which is really me just thinking, and practically not going to help anyone but me to make money has comments.
http://www.hobotraveler.com/2008/02/my-worry-about-being-jaded.html

The world really does want to feed the Jews to the Lions and watch from the stands. This mentality is tiresome, while I still enjoy the first post about helping a family.

Google.com Company Address

Google.com
Yahoo.com has Microsoft after them, this is good news, I will probably say Yahoo if MSN gets the job done and buys Yahoo.com.

I told Boy Genius from India that I would somehow take him to the USA if HoboHideOut.com reaches an average of 5000 per day.

Air Conditioner Key Switch

Air Conditioner Key Switch
I do not like Hotels that force me to put a key tag into the socket that turns on the room electricity. I feel this is the sign of a cheap and low quality hotel. I do see value in conserving energy especially when the hotel is inexpensive, but for an expensive hotel...?

I found this great system in a Hotel in Manila for shutting off only the Air Conditioner only, and not the whole room.

Innovative ideas, simple, cheap and easy to do ideas are always the best. When I see intelligence by design I am happy, nice to know somebody is thinking. Makes me feel good to know the Hotel is creative and innovative.



This is just an ordinary male plug, and the management of the hotel has looped a piece of wire to make a circuit.



When you plug this into the female electrical recepticle it creates a circuit and give power to the AC.



Also found another use for my bucket as the air conditioner was dripping water down onto the desk. Before I was under the impression that it was best to keep the room continually air conditioned. I have now learned that most Hotel Air Conditioners are so badly maintained, a person must shut off when the leave the room, this allow the AC to de-ice and dry off. I also am debating about where the water should drain outside the room or if it is ok to drain inside, does the AC need to be on an exterior wall to work the best.

The more I learn about these systems the better I become at choosing the best room in the hotel.

My Worry about Being Jaded

My Worry about Being Jaded
I see many bad things on the planet.

I sometimes worry about becoming jaded and insensitive, I worry one day I will stop feeling.

A few comments from readers has shown me who I am and who they are.

I reject an increasing number of comments from truly jade people. (Humurous to think an anonymous person can think they are important.)

There are times to listen, there are times to look, there are times to hear, and there are times to feel. There is a time when a person should not feel too much.

There is humor in life, and there is sadness, however at the end of the day I want to know if I can look at both evil and good things and not make unfair judgments and enforce judgment when needed.

The readers of my blog are not as important to me as the people who are really in my life. There are people I meet everyday, real people, good and bad, and these people are what is important in my life.

There is internet world, this blogging world, and I continually learn this world is not real.

What is real are the people I meet everyday of the week as I wander around the planet.

I have made some good friends by email, and appreciate these friends.

I see an ever-increasing jaded world of readers, they do not trust anything, they do not believe in anything, they mistrust and think everyone is trying to snooker them. Maybe there are so many people in these people lives who lie and cheat to them, they are now incapable of believing in anyone or anything.

I still have the capacity to see the good in people; I can talk without having an agenda. I can think and feel the world. I also know I am not so macho that I have to pretend all is great, all is wonderful, or write about the world as a fantasy.

A few readers need to get a life; it is amazing to me how many find pleasure in this unreal world of the internet, and have no true life experiences.

The world is not out to get anyone, the world is good.
Life is good.

Portable Travel High Chair for Restaurant

Portable Travel High Chair for Restaurant
Parents are 24-hour per day protectors of their children’s safety and comfort. I got to believe taking children to restaurants on the other side of the planet is a hassle. I saw this way of making a booster chair in a restaurant and thought to myself.

Truly a solution that will work about anywhere on the planet.
