    Lewis, my thoughts exactly! This guy started his 'career'at the ripe old age of 15. So I can only suppose this is first 'adult' job. So sad. I've always heard that practice makes perfect, but I'm not seeing the proof here, at least.

    I do have an idea for RPD, why don't they post a class being offered that will attract some of these guys, something like
