    Nah, I am busy up to my ears with the thesis. Wish the committee was more courageous though.

    What is success?

    Am I happier?

    Am I healthier?

    Am I more compassionate, less selfish?

    Would people who know me say I am a better person?

    Do I laugh more?

    On the whole I would say yes. But, there remains much to be done.

    I'm about the same - I'm probably a bit worse health wise but that's just age. My salary has been stagnant since 2008. I'm probably a more well rounded person. I've broadened my personal views instead of restricted them. I don't laugh more or less... same. To me success in the last 6 years is staying employed, keeping the wife happy, keeping my house and enjoy breathing (as opposed to the alternative).
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Lol....

    No, please don't.

    I don't think its as glamorous as the show makes it seem.

    Actually, the show makes it seem like a huge mistake.

    Lets see if I can sum it up. Cook Meth, and EVERYONE but Jesse dies. Yea, there.

    And although I dont have a degree in Organic Chemistry something tells me cooking Meth wouldn't be much of a challenge for someone like yourself anyway.

    Indubitably more.

    Lol I would never actually do it, but I gotta admit that the show sure does a good job of making it look cool , minus the whole dying part.
