three masters degrees and UK credit for half the SOA exams, and this is what you think actuaries work on all day? Calculating claims payments from receipts mailed in? My interns get better work than that.

Lucky for you I was raised by people with a good moral center because if that were not the case, you guys would be in a lot of trouble.

So be very, very glad people like me exist. Your future basically depends on it.
