This ASSumes that you are capable of acting like an "adult" and I am not sure that is possible.

I know that your purpose here is to goad me into saying something retaliatory so that you can delete my account, but I won't feed into it. Believe me, though, the thoughts are in my head.

If there is anyone that read your post and is chuckling to themselves, I'd like to point out that I was never abusive towards anyone. This was out of line. Go screw.
According to Google, Abusive = "extremely offensive and insulting" or "engaging in or characterized by habitual violence and cruelty" and neither of these have been directed you.

When you state "the thought are in my head", my Internet based medical opinion is that this is a sign of "schizophrenia" and I would suggest you see real doctor in person.

According to Google, "Schizophrenia" is a mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.

Telling people that responded to this thread to "go screw" could mean go screw yourself (that is not very nice) or that we should engage in some private bedroom activities (and I appreciate that thought). I will give you a pass on this one and take your advice.....gotta go, I need to convince my significant other that it is time to get busy.

FYI

This is exactly the reason for our vacations. If we want to experience and explore, Disney would not be the destination.

He says it is good for some people and a waste for others. That headline is click-bait. "Two week vacations are a waste!" It is also worth noting that Daniel Kahneman did not write that article. It was someone else using snippets of Kahneman's research and providing scientific data in click-bait format outlining that depending on the goals of your vacation, some people would find shorter stays more rewarding.
Be careful when responding without reading what I actually said.

If you're cruising around to different experiences over the course of a month your memories of that will be "better" than if you're doing mostly the same things over that month. In time that month will blend together and you won't have demonstrably better memories than if you'd done it for a week (and the week is less expensive, of course). That's not to say you wouldn't have a far better experience during the month-long cruise than a week-long cruise, though. A longer vacation is almost definitely better than a shorter one while it's happening. Even as a non-cruiser, a month-long trip sounds pretty nice.

I just find this stuff interesting.
I'm well aware that Kahneman didn't write the article in the link, hence the Chris Weller byline. I figured folks would rather read a quick article than listen to a 20 minute TED Talk, but here's Kahneman if you'd prefer to hear it in his own words.

One week or two weeks; doesn't matter to me. Like I said, I just find it interesting.

10-15 2-5 day vacations is optimal. At least for us

Cheers.
