it's my birthday today.
i'm done counting.
i'm imposing the end of years mercy rule.
it's an idea derived from high school sports in some states.
for example, in jersey if a baseball team obtains a ten run lead, the mercy rule is applied and the game ends.
in the game of life, there is a similar number after which it no longer matters what your score is.
the game is over for all intents and purposes.
and so it is with great relief that i am able to finally apply the end of years mercy rule.
