working world problems

how to tell if i’m actually working

-if i’m not working i’m silent

-if i am working you’re gonna hear typing, scribbling, “nooooo”, unintelligible mumbles, “what was that word again”, “stop freezing this isn’t goddamn antarctica”, “why is this page break here i’m gonna break bill gates’ face”

What it’s really like to be a flight attendant:

•You will have report times at 4:30am
•You will have 3+hour delays
•You will get rerouted numerous times
•You will have passengers yell at you endlessly
•You will have long days and short nights
•You will have moments you want to hide in the overhead bins

However…

•You will also have pilots who buy you coffee in the morning
•You will have crews who keep you laughing constantly
•You will have layovers that let you visit with your friends/family
•You will meet celebrities and occasionally catch a ride in a Porsche
•You will be invited to T.I.’s show in Vegas after serving him first class beverages
•You will have passengers who sometimes understand you have long days and they bring you gifts

And most of all, you will have an amazing job with a lifetime full of memories❤️✈️

The meaning of life in a world without work
As technology renders jobs obsolete, what will keep us busy? Sapiens author Yuval Noah Harari examines ‘the useless class’ and a new quest for purpose
By Yuval Noah Harari

One problem when the computers replace humans is the challenge of wealth distribution in society. That seems to be possible to solve by implementing a system of Universal Basic Income.

Another, and maybe more important, problem lies in how all these useless people will find meaning in their lives when they don’t have a traditional producing role in society. The answer might come with the computers as well. Jobs have in fact historically had a limited role in how people in general create meaning in their lives. Religion together with different form av social or ordinary “games” seems to be much more important in providing that meaning. 

And now we have the computers. 

Harari thinks that the computers capability to engage us and widen our experiences through games and virtual might be the new way for the masses to create meaning in a secular and jobless future. 

Hence virtual realities are likely to be key to providing meaning to the useless class of the post-work world. Maybe these virtual realities will be generated inside computers. Maybe they will be generated outside computers, in the shape of new religions and ideologies. Maybe it will be a combination of the two. The possibilities are endless, and nobody knows for sure what kind of deep plays will engage us in 2050.

When I’m working in the pharmacy and someone has a high copay or no insurance and they just kind of sigh and say “Well I have no choice” it breaks my heart. And then some assholes have the audacity to act like I am personally withholding their medications from them or I set the prices myself. If I could just hand you the pills and trust you wouldn’t abuse them, I would, okay? But that’s not how the world works.

I once had the urge to make a shitty photoshop edit of cullen as a farmer and once I gave in, I coudln’t stop. It is completely unrelated to just anything we know about Cullen and there is absolutely no excuse or justification for this mess. I am so sorry. It’s just I feel like he’d be a great farmer, living a happy life on his own little farm okay?

BK: During Aang and Zuko’s heyday, the ability to bend lightning was an incredibly rare skill usually reserved for the inner circles of Fire Nation royalty and high-ranking military officers. Now, in the thick of the Avatar world’s own Industrial Age, we see that this skill is, while not widespread, common enough that it is practiced by blue-collar workers changing up massive batteries in the city’s power plants. This kind of work is incredibly taxing on a person’s chi reserves; that’s why the plant bosses tend to get desperate, strapping young men like Mako to sign up for the grueling task. Mako designs by Jin-Sun Kim and Ki-Hyun Ryu. Color by Sylvia Filcak-Blackwolf. Background design by Eun-Sang Yang. Painting by Emily Tetri.
