Fear Not The Delta Variant

When I was diagnosed with the Delta Variant, I didn’t tremble in fear about the possible complications of my illness. The weaker I felt, the more I drew strength from awareness of the potent virus brewing within me, ready for dispersal to penetrate flimsy masks that could never hold back the inevitable. Instead of cowering…

Ask For What You Want

The best lesson for job discussions I ever got was from a prank phone call. The core advice is to simply ask for what you want rather than complying with established norms or accepting something you don’t want. Changing jobs is not a time to compromise and begin a new undertaking that focuses on what…

Certification is a Scam

Tech certification plays upon the fantasy that a sensible way to get ahead with your career is to acquire credentials. As most people are even more lazy than stupid, they greedily desire as much advantage as possible for the least amount of effort. This allows certification sellers to offer an easily completed credential with a…

Tell Him Big Xi Did It

Notorious B.I.G.’s song “Gimme The Loot” about street robbery careers makes scoffing reference to prey who have no practical means of resistance. After a discussion about the ease of robbing women, he simultaneously anticipates and mocks a threat of retaliation, announcing that he knows no effectual response will be forthcoming. Bitches get strangled for their…

Being Fired is a Gift

Everyone should get fired at least once to experience what happens and to get comfortable with it to diminish fear. Getting fired keeps a job in perspective. A job is a temporary vessel, nothing to depend upon or expect longevity from. It might implode suddenly or gradually erode into instability. The best way to expect…

COVID-19 Was A Blessing

Thank God for Chinese recklessness and Chabuduo for shaking us out of complacency that tolerated the atrocious. Beaten down human livestock learns to accept their captors and internalize not just nutty media narratives crafted by their rulers, but also come to believe that everything stupid is somehow necessary, or at least cannot be in any…

Don’t Be Manageable

A company like Walmart has organized itself into an easy operation. Corporate buyers strike deals to purchase huge quantities in exchange for very low prices, which Walmart then logistically distributes to its many stores ensuring that inventories are not depleted. So long as Walmart stores continue to have expected products on the shelves at a…

Secret Income

The high earnings of doctors and lawyers are well known, and it is expected to see them in luxurious homes. It is a little surprising when one finds a modest businessman of no apparent specialty, intellect, or skill in possession of an impressive estate earned through prolonged scrappiness. Yet in wealthy areas, there are dozens…

Election Fraud Data Science

The recent detection of layered election fraud schemes validates the emerging maturity of data science, particularly the difference between hobby level fraud that previously was good enough but now is easily detected by advanced practitioners of data science. Elections since 2012 have been subject to increasing fraud, particular in voting machines and voting center organization…

Call a Lid

Why bother to get up and face the world when there’s no point? Maybe you come into semi-consciousness around 7am or 8am, roll over, go back to sleep a few times, and by 8:30am you can be sure you don’t want to talk to anyone or deal with the world today. Your basement is huge…

Expert in a Weekend

On Friday I secured an interview for the following Tuesday. The job requested expertise in a particular technical area I didn’t know anything about. If college taught me anything, it was how to cram. I went to sleep early Friday night so the weekend would be free. There was an online class with 33 hours…

Alcohol is Degenerate

Every time I visit the liquor store, my immediate reaction to the clientele, products, and proprietors is of witnessing outlandishly stereotypical lures for pathetic losers with cultivated schemes to profit off of their weakness. Some customers are functional alcoholics; others just bored with nothing better to do than get drunk. Few of them are able…
