That is how I interpret it. A step down is not always a step back.

I currently hold a position lower than my abilities because I love what I do. I don't want the stress as president, even for more money.



That is a very smart move. Very smart. You can to live formlessly and get to accomplish what you want without having the fancy title and the illusion of prestige to get in the way.

It's about power.

Some want it, others don't.

Some wield if effectively, others don't.

Life's a game, then you die.

Power is fleeting. You can have it but keeping it is another. Too many folks just don't realize that.

Not a bad idea. But that takes a lot of people to get that thing here.

It's neat when you can make your avocation your vocation.

Good luck with the next phase, and keep us posted as to developments in skill-based games.

Can you get the "brains" level?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Difficulty 10, 3 men to start, extra man at 25,000 my high score is over 2,260,000+



Record of my brag to Eugene for the score and Eugene's prophetic question about Red 5's priorities for beer and snazzy campuses.

I don't know many people who've scored even 1 million in this mode, and I put a $1,000 bounty on it and John Robinson accomplished it (of all who tried at the company over a year's time). It's difficult to get a million.



http://www.red5studios.com/2007/10/six-hundred-robots-enter-one-man-leaves

The full story of this mode and Eugene describing his quest for a million.



I have no idea what the high score is in this mode, but I don't know anyone who has claimed to get more. Stephen and Robert Birmingham at Atari both could get over a million before I could ever do it. I wasn't able to get over a million until I put up the bounty. I got over a million first (not eligible myself).

But yeah, this game is hard as nails!
