I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • And I was hoping it would be Soulfinger.

    Although, I guess I don’t know his real name…

  • “Quick, profits are plunging, our industry rep is terrible, and we desperately need fresh blood, strong leadership and a new vision!”

    ” Or … we could just appoint the existing Chief Operating Officer as CEO.”

    “Righto then.”
