The graphs show that you are the clear winner! Use more electricity! Keep your lead! Make your neighbours jealous! Actually, do you work at home? Does your wife work at home? If so, some of your neighbours are cheating by using the heat and light of their employers for significant portions of the day.

#7 Comparison shopping: There's a risk/reward here. You can spend forever comparing things and get what you think is the best and it's actually awful and you'll feel awful. But if you do get the best and for cheaper than if you'd just splurged without thinking, then you can feel good about yourself for being so wise. #1 Some things can be experiences. Sometimes I get great joy out of simply using things that are well made.

I like Jerry Seinfeld's line about fathers. From Season 2 episode 'The Jacket', "All fathers are intimidating. They’re intimidating because they are fathers. Once a man has children, for the rest of his life, his attitude is, 'To hell with the world, I can make my own people. I’ll eat whatever I want, I’ll wear whatever I want, and I’ll create whoever I want.'" [http://www.seinology.com/scripts/script-08.shtml] All the best!

I love the arstechnica.com forums because of the lack of signatures. One of the reasons I used to use Opera was so that I could turn off the animated GIFs used in forums. I hope you and the Stack Exchange team are proud of what you have accomplished. I, for one, really dislike when Google gives me a result that isn't in a Stack Exchange site, because I know I'll have to wade through loads of cruft (usually ads that I won't click on) to see if there actually is any useful information beyond the link.
