Opportunity Cost – Geek Edition

After I published yesterday’s post, I debated going back and editing a few items, but before I could do so, I was struck by inspiration!

The Inspiration

No, not Jeezy (gotta put my snowman days behind me), a different source of inspiration:


Yep, that’s it.

I have a habit of favoriting tweets with links that I want to read later.  Scrolling through the archives I came across this favorite from last year, and that gave me the idea…

Guys! What if I re-wrote yesterday’s post to be like an RPG?

Genius, I agree.

So there you have it.  Min-Maxing is always a tough task to accomplish, and I’m no George “Theck” Gehring, so I’m sure some of my choices aren’t in line with the top tier of RL raiding (probably should have spec’d carrots instead of tacos for one), but I think I covered the combat table, and I should be leveling up anytime now. Bring on the epics!
