Hey Kids! You're Screwed!

But this time it's not me saying it!  IT's somebody else.

Insightful, and depressing. As the years go by, I'm happier and happier that I didn't blow $40,000 on extended education.

I loved this article! It speaks the truth in a no-muss, no-fuss way. Just like you, Cappy.

The article is half-true.

Yes, people with liberal arts degrees are totally screwed.

But even people with degrees in computer science and certificates in welding are pretty screwed. Ask Dr. Illusion about the job market for welders, but the market for computer geeks in not healthy in the USA.

Yes, I understand younger people's plight. Yes, I understand whole industries and "career paths" vanishing.

My understanding doesn't change anything, though. You're still going to have to use a shovel and swing a hammer.

I had to do it. You'll have to do it. GTF over it.

"Your friends will be your network. The only reason you are reading this article is because Sarah Lacy has a lot of friends who are very high quality, and they not only supported her PandoDaily ambition, but also put money into it. And even though she is nobody, she does have quality friends."

no thanks, but this does help support my belief that the most talented and intelligent human beings are currently trapped doing shit work and menial labor because they didn't go to NYU film school with a future big time hollywood producer or whatever (insert your own example here). I'd rather sit back and watch society crumble than go make nice with an army of backstabbers and cutthroat fake friends.
