schestowitzI am curious about the phrase "can't seem to find himself" and I often see it used to imply that those who can't make a big impact on society or hoard money "can't seem to find [themselves]," which is in practice quite different. A lot of hippies can be labelled as such even if they are a lot happier than an average USians on anti-depressants. It is possible that Fred "can't seem to find himself," but I am curious as to whether FredJul 19 04:51
schestowitzhimself would say so.Jul 19 04:51
