  Interesting.  Let me see.  I want world dominance.  I tried with GNU
  stuff, but right before Linux hit the proverbial fan, I decided against
  spending more energy on it.  Now Linux is taking over the world.  Then I
  tried with SGML, but I quit that a few years before the tags hit the
  proverbial fan.  Now everybody are talking abot XML.  Then I tried Lisp.
  So, if I quit now, Lisp should gain world dominance shortly.  What better
  Evil Overlord than he who controls the world without knowing?  This also
  implies that a few years from now, when I tire of target shooting, it
  should become the next _major_ world-wide sports interest, and football
  and baseball are all gone.  Yeah, I kind of like this, especially if we
  get shoot-outs on grass fields as a spectator sport.  It will do wonders
  for world overpopulation, too, and I can dominate the world.  Alone.
  This could actually work.   ///
