v2, d257: Achievements

I subscribe to my friend Jason's Twitter feed.  It tells me every time he reaches a new Xbox achievement.  It tells me nothing else.  I feel like you should get Real-Life Achievements for successfully completing tasks, and after you complete a certain number of Achievements the world should reward you somehow.  Like, instead of exclusive downloadable content, you get a new car.  Or a house. Or a pony.  Or a nice read sweater.  Depending on how many achievement points you've accumulated, of course. 

Today, I won the Meet-Your-Future-Brother-In-Law Achievement for sixty-seven achievement points!  (I'm saving up for a quiet week of sleeping in and writing)
