I just had to respond to this.

Stage 1 - failed
Stage 2 - failed
Stage 3 - failed, I think, if memory serves
Stage 4 - failed 2, Emsam and Parnate, Nardil is failing now
Stage 5 - failed

Do I win something? Like a loaded gun? Please? Sorry, but in my state, I can't help me sadisticly sarcastic. I live for my wife and kids, without them, I'd already be dead. The truth is ugly, isn't it?
