My dad said to me once: "Son, when you're older... you can become anything you want. The sky is the limit!"

So my response: "Really dad? Wow!! I want to become an astronaut!!"

My dad: "God damnit son... why don't you ever listen?! I said the SKY is the limit!!"

So now I am a very down to earth programmer.

    I wanted to become an astronaut but as an adult I realize I really only wanted to mess around in zero G and see earth from space. I might just live long enough to see prices fall to the point that I can have a go.

    I also wanted to become an astronaut when I was little. Now I'm a programmer.
