Ummmmm...they didn't "lose them", per se.

Rather, they dropped them in each other's ears. Along with a pony keg or two.

Success is too often defined in professional or materialistic ways. I have people working for me that I'd love to move to other locations to greatly improve their professional position and compensation. Yet, they choose the stability of community for their family over such gain. I can't argue with those priorities and consider them to be imminently successful.

That's a fair assessment, but how much time do you think must yet pass before you consider them successful?

C'mon, Nao, you know that for some of the folks on OT it IS beneficial to society at large that they be here posting...not to mention that it may be the most productive thing they can do.

Why not be unsuccessful on many fronts and be happy about it?
