Don't be obtuse.
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

Are you missing Vaucluse? That's him, Obtuse Vaucluse. :wink:
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Actually, the answer is easy if you will be just honest with yourselves.

Ask yourself, will I be "complete" when I have obtained my ambition? If the answer is no, then it is a curse. Is your ambition for yourself or for your peers and parents? If you can honestly say it's for yourself great. Most, however, are subconsciously doing it for other peoples value systems as a way of gaining acceptance or accolades.

ksl comes closest to understanding where I am coming from and frankly I believe we both share a number of traits in that respect. Don't know if that's good or bad! :mrgreen:
