  1. It’s amazing people blow their chances by sheer laziness. Might as well send a sign saying: I DON’T KNOW HOW TO BE A PROFESSIONAL but indulge me anyway.

  2. The only thing that I don’t like about this is the fact that my prolog is five and a half pages long. I don’t want to send it in and have anyone think I can’t follow simple rules.
