Going to gym for leg workout and will report failure status later.

I failed to do a workout. Which isn't failure failure, but since I'm not posting in the training failure status thread, I'm failing at reporting my failing. That's close enough to a failure failure.

I could fail to fail a drug test. Maybe I need to work on that.

I thought about starting a "status status" thread. you know, to brag about your social standing, but thought better of it.

Adapted from the Original Star Trek for this thread:

Kirk - Everything I do is a fail. I have failed
Norman - If everything you do is a fail, and you have failed at that, then you have succeeded. But you cannot succeed because everything you do is a fail...
Kirk - Wait for it.
Norman - ...Cannot succeed when you fail. That does not compute; that does not compute... (self destructs)
Kirk - Spock, let's go ride. My new friend Nomad will be joining us.

That scene is one of my favorites. It has stuck with me. Trouble with Tribles never did much for me.

I failed to fail at my leg workout tonight but I failed to recharge my Nano so I had no music.

Kirk talked a lot of machines into self-destructing.
