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...
