Woohoo, congrats!
"I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him or her. Will she gain anything by it? Will it restore her to a control over her own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to freedom for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away."

Found among the papers of Mohatma Gandhi

That's fantastic!! I'd love to know more about the prize, because I'd love a t-shirt. =) I'm showing everyone the Puffer Forum post because I'm so proud, but I was wondering why the picture doesn't show up if you aren't a member? Because other pictures show up, but not Koopa's... any ideas?
