My degree is in Computer Engineering, with some Master's work in Comp Sci...

And these days I mostly work system accreditation. That is, certifying that a given system is secure. I do relatively little of the tech work, but push a lot of paper.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Okay, the whole "would finally pay some taxes" is bullshit.

Taxes are taken out of paychecks, regardless of how much or how little you make. You might get a hefty chunk of it back when you file your taxes, but you didn't get that money when you got handed your paycheck.

Also, sales tax, car tax, various municipal taxes... again, the whole "the poor don't pay taxes" argument is bullshit. (No, I'm not saying they should pay more.)
