In a totally irrelevant post to the previous one, I am adding a few more of my personal definitions to the Currie Dictionary. And yes, I do find myself a little jaded recently.
Wisdom: The art of unlearning innocence and understanding the frailties of man.
Common Sense: Finding a path through these frailties that allows one to survive.
Success: Walking a path fast enough that even though it may be crumbling beneath your feet you are able to stay ahead of the chasm opening below.
Fame: Fooling enough people that they actually believe you are worth paying attention to.
Superhero: Someone who raises kids that aren't too badly damaged by the real world and understand the concepts listed above.
Bobble Heads: What all statues will be in the future. A way to pay tribute to the titans of politics and industry. Big heads, little hearts and a moving target for the pigeons.
