Thanks for this. Can I just add something: Please don't find it funny.
rule (x) never trust yourself
(y) be kind and truthful to everyone
(z) never trust in your money

Have a very merry christmas. I am sure I'll miss (and I am already) you during the period and hopefully will catch up with you in the new year.
Liebe Grüße

I agree with your rules but the Ferengi wouldn't (but then, when DS9 left off they were starting to undergo some reforms because their homeworld was threatened by climate change, so maybe they added new Rules of Acquisition for a more Sustainable Capitalism?). In case you're not a Trekkie, I am sorry for geeking out.

I'll see you in a couple of days!
