For those that know me personally, if you ever find yourself wondering “Has Jesse thought this through? Does he realize how dangerous/risky/uncertain it is?” I just want to very clearly state that the answer is always “Yes.”
I have thought through every terrible thing that might happen, including at least a dozen you probably couldn’t have without first having read the wikipedia entry for unusual deaths (which I’ve read at least twice).
The question for me isn’t whether there’s risk, it’s whether the rewards are worth it. If my choices are to risk everything or stand still, standing still feels like death to me these days so I’m going to go for it.
