    Watching the Thomas Crown affair and it got me thinking. You and 20 of your mates walk into the British museum with the long butler coats & the bowler hats carrying the same briefcases.

    How long do you have before the security guards get twitchy?
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    At your age? I doubt you'd have enough charge.
