Guaranteed to make you feel like a slacker... But well worth reading.

Do you know anyone with this kind of persistence?

Personally? No.

But I've been reading about Oscar Pistorius and I realize that I have no excuses.

I do, but I cannot talk about them. ;)

Is it better to have no excuses, or is it better to have excuses you cannot talk about?

Everyone has no excuse, right?

Sounds like an excuse. ;)

There's nothing like a good excuse.

And THAT is nothing like a good excuse. :)

This conversation is unsettling given what we now know about Oscar Pistorius killing his girlfriend.

Perhaps highly persistent people are often wrong.
