Depends, if there were thousands, maybe even millions of Steve Jobs out there being dicks would they all obtain the same level of success as the original?
Is there a maximum dick level or does it just continue on until it reaches super villainy levels like in Kingsman?
Also wasn't it his dickness that ultimately killed him? Instead of seeing a regular doctor he decided that following the rantings of a witch doctor were a better course of action for his cancer treatment.
I'm not sure I want to see this social experiment carried out.

I thought to be a true hipster you need to like something ironically. However, having said that, my definition is when a group of people form a temporary sub-culture
surrounding something new. (ie. vaping) I actually like 80's TV, so my downloading Emergency! is covered under nostalgia. I also like MST3K, I think that falls
under geekism nerdaphile, whatever. Other than that, my piracy comes in other forms now, far more ingenious than the primitive torrents of yesteryear.
Well, IPTV anyway.

Denver TSA Screeners Manipulated System In Order To Grope Men's Genitals 294

McGruber writes: The CBS affiliate in Denver reports: "Two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport have been fired after they were discovered manipulating passenger screening systems to allow a male TSA employee to fondle the genital areas of attractive male passengers." According to law enforcement reports obtained during the CBS4 investigation, a male TSA screener told a female colleague in 2014 that he "gropes" male passengers who come through the screening area at DIA. "He related that when a male he finds attractive comes to be screened by the scanning machine he will alert another TSA screener to indicate to the scanning computer that the party being screened is a female. When the screener does this, the scanning machine will indicate an anomaly in the genital area and this allows (the male TSA screener) to conduct a pat-down search of that area." Although the TSA learned of the accusation on Nov. 18, 2014 via an anonymous tip from one of the agency's own employees, reports show that it would be nearly three months before anything was done."
