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.
