By the time Hitler was my age…

…he had ignited a world war that destroyed Europe, brought Germany to ruin, and killed millions. I just don’t feel like I’ve accomplished all that much.

On the bright side, another 10 days and I will have outlived him.

    Happy birthday, Mark.

    Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein when she was 18. S.E. Hinton wrote The Outsiders when she was 15. Man am I inadequate. On the other hand, Tolkien was still tinkering with The Silmarillion on the day he died. Maybe we’ll get the full, finished, authorized version in Heaven?

    Hitler is so cliché. Why not point out that you’ve already outlived Rasputin?

  • Happy Birthday, Mark.

    Nice of you to Begin with Godwin’s Law, rather than waiting around. 🙂

  • I’ve already outlived Hitler and Rasputin, so I should feel pretty good. Actually, I feel really weird.

    A belated Happy Birthday, Mark!
