    But 100 out of 100 is still 100%… a perfect score!

    After 74 years I can claim only one success to my name …..

    I lived through five consecutive summers without winter.

    Pig, I’d say you finish not at all.

    If you can live a long life without any success at all, you’ve been successful of at least having lived a long life without dying. Yet….

    There’s the law of averages, but it only means there’s another Pig who has succeeded every time!

    It may be all in what you consider a success or a failure. In the joyful words of Adam Savage: “Failure is always an option!” He meant that as a good thing.

    This is much how we feel today, after Disney+ removed “Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made” as we were watching it Friday night! Seems they removed over 100 titles and will take a write-off for taxes.Mr. Pastis- Does this mean the film will disappear forever, since the write-off evidently precludes from Disney from selling it or licensing it to another streaming service? And, there’s been no home video release of the title; it went from its Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival directly to Disney+ labeled as a “Disney+ Original.”We are holding out hope that there is still life ahead for Timmy Failure…but regardless, thank you for both Timmy & Pearls ❤️

    Depends on how you define success . I am not rich financially but I own my own Condo, have a loving husband, a few good friends, my 2 adorable cats and overall I am happy .

    Were I Goat, I’d have said no. Most “successful” (and happy) people I know have a lot more failures than successes. The successes are a result of the failures and they count for lot more.

    My trouble is the results of the failures seem to linger much longer than those of the successes

    For most of us, seeing the positives in our lives is quite hard. This is one of the things that recovery programs have to help people with the most. We are not all failures.

    The scarry ones are the narcissist who think that they can do no wrong. We have all seen an example of that recently, although there are many who do not want to admit it.

    Not personal balance, Pig. Just a general equilibrium, where you are deep in sh¡t while others are flying high above making you guilty for the infernal stink.

    Pork dishes tend to rate pretty good and you can’t beat bacon.

    Pig. You forgot a very important success point!

    You are not bacon today. That makes 7,820 days of success.

    Pig’s view is that he’s a success at being a failure. I very much disagree!

    No. Or there is no hope for any of us. My tally would look like Pig’s, more or less.

    Here’s a hint, pig. You’ll be strong to the finish if you eat your spinach.
