Sometimes I think I'm a terrible writer, with all of my digressions and lapses of focus. Then I read something like this, and it makes me feel much better about my own writing skills. Seriously, go read it, for a laugh if nothing else. It takes superfluous self-promotion to new heights. You have to get to the 6th paragraph (out of 8!) just to realize that there is a point to all of the self-aggrandizing bullshit, even though it's quite clear by then that the point could have been made without any of it. If you don't involuntarily utter"wow" when you're done reading this, there may be something wrong with you.
