Success is a Relative Thing - Scott Adams' Blog

Success is a Relative Thing

There is no such thing as absolute success. Success only has meaning in relation to other things. For example, my book, God’s Debris, is ranked #8 on a recent Amazon.com best seller list in the Religious Studies – Psychology category. That doesn’t seem like much of a success until you notice who placed 9th. It’s all relative.

Suck it, number nine! 

(And by that I mean not literally a “sucking” force but more of an illusion caused by your dead lips bending space-time.)

I’m a terrible winner.

[Update: God’s Debris climbed to #3 after I posted this, but I was happier at #8 because it was funnier.]

I am considering buying this bike that can’t be stolen just to leave it locked up in Oakland for a weekend so its Chilean designers can see they still have work to do.
