Hey, I already had a horse break my nose this week, I don't need no hammock-lubber breaking my balls over who's more likely to survive the upcoming apocalypse, ya hear? I got more cans of tuna in the pantry than you do.dunno wrote:I think that my skills as a brick layer, plumber, milwright, and Aviation technician are going to be worth a premium
Once being a member of the brick-layer's journeyman adventure myself (when in doubt, make it more romantic than it is), I'm all for humility. I've always espoused real work over this silly white-collar-criminal nonsense these computer kids get paid for. They help their brother-in-law fix a roof one weekend and they suddenly think they know what's-what and who's-who in the building trade. Overpaid wankers, the lot of 'em.
Not so sure about not needing to plug stuff into a 747 though - you can't even turn the radio on in a Toyota any more without needing a masters-degree in iPhone-attachments.
Instructional videos are great for "So you want to replace a window in your house?", type-o-things, but it doesn't work so well watching a disembodied mouse-pointer zip around the slightly-out-of-focus screen highlighting text while some kid whose voice has yet to drop warbles on about how many threads it takes to screw in a light bulb.
