I don't recall the 1870s having food stamps, section 8 housing, earned income tax credits giving you more money than you paid in, free emergency room care, etc. 150 years ago, you came her and worked your ass off or you died. There was no option to simply live off the labor of others.

I'm quite lazy as well, and have also coasted through life on being able to pull off a win at the last minute. Didn't do the homework? I'll bang something out between classes and it will be better than what most people spent hours slaving over. Didn't study for the test? I learned most of it while staring at the ceiling in class so I can pull off an A to help make up for the homework I didn't feel like doing. Hell, my interviewing (read: bullshitting) skills paired with my intelligence are good enough that I'm making far more money than my effort really deserves.

I don't know if schools are necessarily setting people up, but I was certainly never instilled with a work ethic. Which is why I too am perusing Slashdot at work.

Oh, and as for women of course nobody has ever heard of Heart, Joan Jett, Lita Ford, or bands nowadays such as Halestorm. No, women are never in mainstream rock.

You're an idiot. Typical moron looking for bigotry where it doesn't exist. You probably believe that those poor women and blacks need your powerful support to get anywhere. Talk about a bigot...

Finding the bitcoin might be easy, but managing power loads, working deals with local utilities or other involved parties, and managing the actual sales of the bitcoin (because unless you can turn a bitcoin into actual cash, the value of a bitcoin is ZERO) is whole lot more work than plugging in a board.

A computer scientist is someone who fixes things that aren't broken.
