I like getting tired
Yep !!! That is a tangible benefit for me...otherwise I may be awake half the night doing stooopid things. Nothing better than a good deep, exercise-induced sleep to se up a good day.

That too, but I was thinking more along the lines of the end of a hike, when your body starts needing a rest, and you still have 4 more miles to the trail head, or the last ski run of the day when you feel like you finally had enough, and you start to think about what restaurant you want to eat at because you're too tired to want to cook.

One thing about working out that I really enjoy: for the entire rest of the day, I feel more energetic and slightly less hungry.  Is that normal?

Sometimes, I'll push myself too hard and hurt myself exercising (mildly spraining something or getting super sore) but I heal fairly up quickly so it's no biggie.

I like to go on 2-3 hour hikes of basically just fast-walking, which my brother refers to as "death marches".  He prefers to walk for only about 30 minutes, which I find irritatingly short.  30 min drive, 30 min walk, 30 min drive.  The math just doesn't add up imo.

Uggh.  WTF.

Is it too late for us to adopt a less socially permissive approach?  I heard that in Japan, if you litter or otherwise become a nuisance, you run the risk of getting beaten up or similar.  Maybe not that far, but make being a jerk something you get flak for and get ashamed about, not something that you're proud of and something that gets you elected.

Japan is interesting.  Toured for 2 weeks in 1981.  But you will never be Japanese.  Nor will Americans become Vulcans.
