True dat

The estimable Peter Egan in this month's Road and Track:
[T]hey wanted to present me with an award for being The Oldest Living Person to Have Built a 948 Sprite Engine on His Kitchen Table and Carried it Down a Flight of Stairs Right Before Going to the Hospital with Intense Back Pain That Would Persist Forever. 
Actually, that wasn't the exact wording.  It was a "Sharing the Passion" award, but the idea was about the same.  If we live long enough and suffer greatly from our own stupidity, someone finally notices.
