Why the "lamest"? I cannot think of a more challenging job in Silicon Valley right now ...

Mission impossible. Ist nur die Eintrittskarte in den CEO-Club. Und eine Menge Geld.

Hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
