Catfishing Jobs

A hustler pays attention and sees the Corona era as just another opportunity to utilize while people are off balance and make themselves weak and confused with pointless moping about the organic world. Take ’em for a ride and grab free money to feed your family. March job posting descriptions started changing. Where previous IT…

Education Illusion

Universities have been forced to online classes, which students quickly see through as being just someone talking while giving links to documents and videos to consume. There’s maybe a hundred dollars of value there in curation, but not $50,000 a semester. Was all education always just self-education with a mediocre life coach? Many thought highly…

A Glimpse of Normalcy

Changing routine tests assumptions, and undergoing quarantine has forced a reconsideration of how our lives were ordered against our interests. Sleep is better and longer, with less stress and worries because the next day will be methodical and adhere to a plan instead of subjected to crazed chaos reacting to the urgent need of the…

The manager asked what developers thought of the certification and after a few rounds of tepid talk, someone spoke up honestly and broke the taboo. “It’s just…

Dying In The Office

Some truth is on display in the office, particularly in the unhealthy lifestyles of your prole coworkers. You hear their stories of drinking binges, entertainment binges, and utter neglect of physical activity they know is destroying them. There’s no way to hide the results on plain display to all. They are wheezing pictures of wrecked…

Filibuster Strategies

For most salaried jobs, no one at the company that is responsible for making evaluations has the ability to actually assess performance. When only appearance matters, crazy fakery flourishes. One project manager I worked with was famous for producing reams of documentation which he would send to the client for affirmation of the information therein….

Wasting Genius

The worst thing about being called a genius is the expectation of others. Once they identify you as a genius, they lustfully scheme how to keep you sitting in a cubicle while they charge a premium hourly rate they can take a fat percent of. Would any decent person ever consider sticking Einstein or Beethoven…
