    The outside isn't *so* bad...

    ...I like stretching out with a laptop in the garden on a warm, sunny day. (Generally in the shade, which really defeats the object...)

    Aside from that, whether I want to or not, living in the countryside demands my appearance in the outside world at all-too-frequent intervals.

    Well there's a difference between "city" outside and "country" outside, country outside can be really beautiful. City out city can be good, but sometimes it can be really ugly.

    country outside can be really beautiful
    Oh indeed it can... the view I have now sat here (were it not midnight) is really beautiful. However, I've lived here all my life, and there's only so much pleasure one can get from the flawless views and rolling countryside...

    The city is far more interesting, and there's a hell of a lot more to do to keep one's mind occupied. I mean, besides wrestling with code allday until a program pops out or surfing the web or go for walks there's not a hell of a lot to do here.

    If it's a nice day, I like to take full advantage of the great weather if I have any free time to do so at all. Unfortunately, it's spring, and the weather seesaws from warm and sunny to very cold, cloudy, and rainy or even snowy (for example, last Monday). Today, most of yesterday, and tomorrow are examples of the days I try to stay indoors: It's very cold for this time of year (31° F. in the morning with high temperatures in the mid forties). For a computer geek, I guess I'd be considered "outdoorsy."

    If you think the country is all nice and beautiful, you haven't seen the ugly side of it; just as there are bad "ghetto" areas of the city, there are, too, poor, rundown, and overall ugly parts of the country. Take a look at a small, rural industrial town sometime. Everything about them tends to be ugly: the streams, the lakes, the streets, the houses, etc. Also, the suburbs aren't so much ugly (for the most part) as they are dull and monotonous: The roads are surrounded by subdivisions of houses and strips of gasoline stations, supermarkets, banks, and fast-food restaurants clustered in commercial areas. There are, of course, the parks, which can be pleasant on a nice day.

    I don't know how I would survive without my sports + my comp. So, I guess i'm a half and half.

    I usually go outside on the weekends to either ride my bike or to hang out with my friends.

    I'm probably 60 (inside) - 40 (outside). Especially now that my son (7 years old) started skateboarding, I've started skating again (after 5 years of not). It's a lot easier to nollie heelflip when you're 17 than when you're 27! Ah! My aching back.

    During the week I'm outside about 1 to 2 hours a day (not counting going to and from work, etc.). Weekends I'm outside 6 - 8 hours a day.

    Yea, it causes cancer.

    Fresh air can prematurely age your lungs, and nature in general results in undefined behavior. If I want to see trees then I'll search google for a jpeg.

    I've got a view of a huge park out of the office window.

    We have great weather here. A average is 12-27C about 250 days a year. Gets hotter or wetter but not much colder.

    All that blue sky and endless golden beaches kinda makes you want to go outside and do something that may include exercise. (which is why I am inside looking at trains)

    Rather get out on the ocean in my boat. No mobiles, no laptops and especially no boss, just wind and waves.

    Oh, and the occasional fish, cephalopod or crustacean for my dinner.
