Always lurking never posting,

but after reading this just felt the need to share my admiration for this post.

Thanks crashwhips, some real food for thought.

Bump!

I just re-read that again for what is maybe the 10th time overall and all I can say is that you, sir, are a legend! This and your 500th post are easily the best posts on 2+2!

I am legitimately excited about your upcoming 3000th post

TheAshman or Doorbread running up high six figures over a year of hard work and then losing it all back in a matter of days or even hours is much like a guy who is doing amazingly well in life, then he gets in a bad fight with his girlfriend, and he gets way too drunk at a bar, and then drives way too fast going home, and wraps his car around a tree and ends up dead or paralyzed.
That (I mean errare humanum est) is unfortunately so true that it makes me whine and spew even more. It's very important to sometimes forget about this human shortcoming because otherwise life seems so unfair and dull that even the ultimate spew doesn't seem a big mistake.

Just finished reading this amazing wall of text on my train journey, and I have to say this has opened up my perspective towards life.

Great effort and thank you for your utmost devotion!

She's rapidly approaching 70 years of age, so good for her if she can pull a young buck like that.

Wonder if I would have to call crashwhips dad, though.
