Anyway, I hope the frog didn't place higher than the drunken bear.
Wait, I thought he wasn't trying to pick a fight.
A few hours later, digg funneled me to a blog about why someone ditched his Mac for Linux. Notice that his main complaint is the incivility and ungratefulness of the Mac community.
We just can't win, can we?

Steve Pavlina gave us 10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job, and every single one sounds great. He says he loves to write, and he's a pretty good writer. So I think it's cool that his blog generates $9,000 a month for him. The problem is that not everyone is a good writer. Not everyone knows how to build a million-dollar web page, which looks horrible. Who really clicks on those links anyway?
It's not that I don't want to control my own life, but it's so much easier to bury my head in the sand and enjoy the comfort of a regular paycheck. It's also much easier to maintain a relationship when we're not stressed out about getting rich. Greed makes people evil, and I don't want to be evil. If I'm meant to have more than I do now, I will. I'm pretty sure my millions will fall on my head in a beautiful bag without knocking me out.

Then they started talking about reality. One friend tried to pack shampoo and soap and towels and, you know, toiletries. Guess what? This is camping. No shower for you. Now look, I admit that I don't always shower every day, but that's only when I spend my weekend and holidays locked inside the house. If I even had one drop of sunscreen on my finger tips, I'm not even touching my bed until I've showered and lathered myself in moisturizing lotion. There is no way I'm floating down a river in direct sun light while covered in sunscreen and Off! for three days in a row, relieving myself in the bushes, sleeping in the wild, without a single hot shower.

"Me, too, for another ten days. I decided I was following my sister's footsteps too closely, so I'm going to do something else."
"I chose a different strategy. My sister is a cancer surgeon. My goal is to put her out of business. Make her obsolete."
