The td;lr I got from his "treatise" was "be cautious investing in mimicking

djhbrown's been doing pretty well recently staying related and relevant to
the subject area. This is the first time in awhile he's wandered this far

be useful and taking stabs at being so. Everyone desires to be respected
and admired. Some people want it a bit more aggressively than others, and
some even more especially as they enter the latter stages of life.
