Journal Journal: F*@k computer programming as a career 8

"I'm sick and tired of it. I've been programming now for well over a decade and I simply can not write another god damned line of code. It's the same shit over and over again.

Now Johnnie and Susie have another toy to celebrate their gradual development in our new, post-Orwellian future!

I thought that having just this one was somehow, inadequate:

Now? We need an EasyBake Backscatter nudity scanner, a "pat down" edition of "Operation" and a GI Joe Seal Team Six bin Laden's Lair play set.
