Lemme see.
I have achieved 2 3 4 7 12 13 16 20 21 29 32 35 36. Could throw in a few more but DW would kill me. So I'm a good ways along to nirvana.
If the gummint could stimulate me a little more toward sloth, life could become real good.

There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.

but not for the same reasons as a bum would.

Ah, dotcoms. I finally ended up working for one. I thought web 2.0 meant that the people have learned their lessons from 2000 and are now running viable businesses. Ah, no, I had no idea that 2.0 mean $2.00 in revenue.
