Teh Metamorphosis

"As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. He was lying on his hard, as it were armor-plated, back and when he lifted his head a little he could see his domelike brown belly divided into stiff arched segments on top of which the bed quilt could hardly stay in place and was about to slide off completely. His numerous legs, which were pitifully thin compared to the rest of his bulk, waved helplessly before his eyes. What has happened to me? he thought. It was no dream." -- Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis

The only thing is, I actually found myself transformed to one stage lower than an insect.

People have been gaming the TTLB system (which is what people naturally do when presented with a system; no surprises there) and N.Z. is trying to compensate. Check out those posts; I by and large agree with the course he is taking.
