When I was in 4th grade I inherited my cousin Larry's collection. Larry mostly read until he was 11 or 12. That meant the comics stopped about '72. You recall how that worked out. You found me that cool poster that I then lost again.

My last bonus at the architectural consultancy firm was $2000. My first and only bonus at the next horrific firm was a $100 gift card for the local mall. Then they gave me a $500 reward for employee of the quarter and laid me off two weeks later.

I just built a Gantt chart that extends out to October 2022. It's got 51 items on it, covering 298 credits in three programs at two schools across 4 years. THAT is how far I'm willing to go to continue opting out of this rat race and I'm already sitting fat'n'happy at the circus.
