Life Lesson #25: If you scrub too hard, you might dull the finish.




There are those who run the world

... idiots, assholes, puppets, etc ...

and those who program it.

The two are easily differentiated ... which is unfortunate, since it is often the case that when the programmers are in too large of a public eye, their survival rates tend to decrease.

In a nutshell, the users seek to profit from the world, whereas the programmers seek to change it.

I have no grudges against people who want to profit, thrive, live well -- only against those who would do so, primarily off of another's back via fraud, opression, repression, embezzlement, fucked-up budget priorities, and, my personal unfavorite, corporate-sponsored athletes of the legislative, judicial, and executive varieties.
