Hey Rob! You're one too. Likewise AC.

Beg pardon if I missed any.

Is ed being a patronizing asshole or a nice guy?

It's hard to tell. :p

Good news for troubling times.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Um. Mostly sober...
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Congrats bro, a celebration of not doing something.

Edit to add: That came off a bit harsh. Seriously, 15 years? Isn't there a firework smiley somewhere?

Strange game, the only winning move is not to play. War games movie. Such a classic line. Transcends time and space.

Congratulations. I haven't had a drink in 3 weeks, which is pretty long for me. Had a bit of a health issue come up which will require minor surgery. Not going to drink again at least until the surgery is in the rear-view mirror.
