It's time to drop out and become a goatherd. Or an adventurer. Where should I go for adventure? How do you get a gig as a freelance hero? I was just in a four hour meeting and the market lost like 4% while I was out. That means it's time to cash out and join the battle against cosmic evil.


Who's with me?

I know it's just nervousness about the Lehman auction tomorrow, which will either cause mass carnage or modest gains, but I've had enough of this crap. So what's a reasonably young fellow to do if he doesn't want to fiddle with Black-Scholes and wants adventure instead?

In other news, after long planning meetings, their vision for my role in the next year in my group is as the brains of our operation. Well, frabjous day. I don't and won't get paid like it, though I should be glad to continue getting paid at all in this economy.

ADVENTURE!

got room in your party for more people? by clover kicker (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Oct 09, 2008 at 01:24:30 PM EST
I've got several levels in computers, and 1 or 2 in gardening/hunting/fishing/camping which might become more important very soon.

Disclosure - charisma was my dump stat.

i'm thinking of either hawaii or georgia (iberia) for my adventures. do you have contacts in either? do you speak georgian or russian? not required, but helpful.

How many levels is Eagle Scout? by wumpus (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Oct 09, 2008 at 02:16:32 PM EST
I don't think I've put all that much xp into it since then. My carrying capacity is probably bigger, though.

When I'm imprisoned as an enemy combatant, will you blog about it?

if the success of the mission depended on it, could you eat four doughnuts?

I'll be on the road for a year, so yeah, I can probably pull that off. I could even take photos.

is closer to the truth than I'd like.

better conditions to take up the reigns. His father got shafted by amazingly good economics. Just watch, although he's a mediocre musician, he's gonna be the new Truth for Duh Poor Fokes.
