Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

It could hurt my career to say no. Hahaha. This isn't blowing the boss under his desk- these serfs aren't being served up as cannon fodder to satisfy their lord's bloodlust. One doesn't arrive at the absolute pinnacle of a field based on the argument that "it might hurt the career not too"

The drive to be at the absolute top of ones chosen game - be it doctoring, lawyering, teaching, sailing, dog grooming, acting, bar tending, waitin tables, being a bell boy, cop, gardener, auto mechanic, or roller derby girl has almost nothing to do with the weakass desire to "be successful" and everything to do with being in a constant state of competition- with oneself if there's no one else around.
