Comment As a sysadmin (among other things) (Score 1) 572

Hating everyone is my default state. To be fair, it has very little to do with computers and a lot to do with generalized, willfull ignorance and stupidity (Journalists hold a special, very dark and awful place in my heart), but it wouldn't be any different if I was a CEO, a construction worker, or god forbid, a lawyer.

Or, as GK Chesterton put it in _All Things Considered_:

When I was a very young journalist I used to be irritated at a peculiar habit of printers, a habit which most persons of a tendency similar to mine have probably noticed also. It goes along with the fixed belief of printers that to be a Rationalist is the same thing as to be a Nationalist. I mean the printer's tendency to turn the word "cosmic" into the word "comic." It annoyed me at the time. But since then I have come to the conclusion that the printers were right. The democracy is always right. Whatever is cosmic is comic.
