I got your point, Chuck, one hundred percent. It's a depressing
perspective, but I acknowledge the truth of it in my own life. Almost
every day I'm reminded that nothing is as exciting as it used to be.
That's just something I suppose I have to accept as I get older - I
won't attempt to speak for anybody else's experience in that regard.

However I couldn't keep myself from going for the cheap laugh inspired
by your analogy to the, uhm, thrill of breakthroughs in syphilis
treatment. Look, there was a smiley and everything...
