I don't know about you, but I don't have that kind of time. I gots me things ta do! I'm willing to trade a little faith and trust for the ablity to move forward at breakneck speed. That's why I form relationships and communicate with others. If I had to see/do/read/hear everything all my friends had I'd never have the time for anything else.
