And while I'm at it, I'd like a pony
Does the pony have rocket boosters and ion canons?
There still are. North dakota is having trouble filling high paying jobs as we speak
That and the highest rent in the nation. Unless you're living in company housing the cost of living in the Bakken is higher than NYC or San Francisco. And there's the fact that to have live IN North Dakota to work those jobs. The AMBIENT temp was -22F at my house last night. Yeah you'll make $80k-$100k a year, but you'll earn it.
What do you have against evolution?
Try thinking of it as a personal relationship. Microsoft was an ex that abused you for years. Until one day you've had enough and walk out. Now, years later you hear that Microsoft has changed. You hear through the grapevine that they're nothing like they use to be, and they'd like to have you back. But then you remember Terminal Server and how they hurt you. You think if they've truly changed, Microsoft could win you back but that won't happen over night. It took years for them to destroy the trust you had in them, it'll take years to earn it back.
It doesn't seem that you are doing any "figuring" at all - simply parroting a meme you have taken by osmosis.
