No glory, sorry. You aren't building anything lasting that future generations will admire. Each work of art you create takes about ten seconds to put together and is often gulped down within minutes, never to be seen again. We can't even say you're really contributing positively to society. You facilitate intoxication (and sometimes, alcoholism) for a living. Sorry, pal.
