I had since gotten sick of boring cards like Amex Platinum and CSP, so I applied for the Centurion and was denied. I tried to recon with Amex 3 times and each time was denied. I was so devastated that I rage closed all my Amex cards.
Now I'm feeling bored with high limit rewards cards and am remembering how much better it was to never have to worry about running up debt. My plan is to weed the rest of them out card by card and at the end of it all, have only a 500 limit Cap One with a 39 dollar annual fee. It's so reassuring and safe to know you can only use it a couple of times a month because with the low limit and the fact it takes them two weeks to restore your available credit after you make a payment, well you simply won't be able to use it much. Oh sure you can call them up and ask them to restore it, and then they'll have to get your bank on a third party call and verify that the payment was sent successfully so anytime you have an hour to waste listening to a script reader with an accept that you can barely understand, have at it. That's the kind of thing I'm looking forward to. Before you know it Amex will be BEGGING me to take their black card, which I will refuse unless the CEO cleans my wheels on my car with his tongue. THEN I'd consider it.
I'm also bored with having scores in the 780s. I want to know what 500 is like again. Heck I figure once that happens I can then apply for EVERY commenity card and get 30 cards with limits of 100 to 300 dollars that I can only use at one place. What could be better than that?
So that's life for Member. In case anyone is interested and needs a laugh. I hope that you all continue to "do a Member" and think of me. As Toecutter in Mad Max would say, "think of him when you rage close a card" or something like that.

I guess I've never understood the requirements to be a role model / inspiration around here...
I'm looking forward to hearing about some new credit misadventures, Member.
