  • Two mistakes (Score:3, Insightful)

    You made two mistakes which make it highly unlikely you will ever be able to be lazy:

    1. You got a job where you have to carry a pager.

    2. You had kids.

    In fact, these are two things I've worked hard to avoid so far, and will continue to do so in the future. Thus, I am able to go out on weekends and play Go, watch fansubbed anime downloaded off the net, read books, go to concerts, etc.
    • While I agree a job that requires me to carry a pager is, indeed, a mistake, I would have to strenuously disagree on your second point. Children are a huge amount of work, but they're worth every bit of effort you have to expend.

      There are some rare things in life which produce a net energy gain. Children are one.
