    Fuck that. Better to slang 'za and lift weights in order to prepare to survive the post-apocalypse Mad Maxian hellscape that awaits.

    Really, it's a lot like surviving the pre-apocalypse world. The first rule is to avoid Brock Lesnar. The second rule is, seriously, avoid Brock Lesnar.



    Really, even now, it'd be easier to list the main roster WWE women who DON'T have breast implants.

    Becky Lynch
    Bayley (Those are clearly just A+ quality tawts)
    Maybe Sasha Banks.

    Not listing Nia Jax because she is fucking horrible and doesn't deserve to be listed with competent wrestlers and Sasha Banks.
    There's also not being degenerate. That's something we could do.

    Let's see....

    Generation X have Elon Musk *yawn* you can keep him.
    Millennials have Mark Zuckerberg

    You see where this is going?

    What do you have aurelius? I mean beside Dirty Red.
    Gates did not create the computer revolution which started ushered us into the information age (and is very near to disrupting the world economy). If he hadn't created a gazillion dollar company someone else would have. That is the beauty of capitalism. It does not rise or fall on a single actor. Because the overall supply/demand drive the market. BOOMERS suck.

    Jobs? LMAO. Jobs was a great marketer. He didn't drive technology. Apple didn't invent the iPhone (I actually think Microsoft did but would have to check). They just made it pretty and created a business model out of making middle class people feel elite by overpaying for consumer electronics. Suck it poor people! Of course you, being a Boomer, would champion pointless consumerism over actual accomplishments. Bet you live in a shitty McMansion in the middle of nowhere.

    Stephen Hawking has spent his entire career trying to disprove his own ground breaking work on black holes. If Stephen Hawing isn't impressed with his own work, why should I be?

    Edward Witten...had to Google him. Seems like a smarty mcsmart pants. But still had to Google him. Bet you don't have to Google Kardashian. So not that great.

    I'll give you the Lord of Iron. May his weight ever go up.

    *This post was in good fun.

    Jobs did something special besides marketing.

    He forced a big corporation to be quirky, innovative, and risk-taking. That's nearly impossible to do, but he did it by being unreasonable to the point of obsession. And he was *often right* on design ideas, so his risks paid off sometimes.

    Most big corporations instead succumb to their bigness and coast.
    They do the same stuff year after year, and focus on efficiency, marketing, and (depending on industry) lobbying Congress for tax breaks/favorable regulation.

    I'm not an Apple fan, don't own anything they make, and find their brand irritating. But Jobs was a big deal.

    Jobs, like Edison, was a complete and thoroughgoing, narcissistic asshole.

    It took jobs to put together touch screen, apps, and music licenses. Your criticisms are like saying the transcontinental railroad was no big deal because the guys who built it didn't invent the T-rail. It's only 10 years old and it's changed the world. It's so great that parents worry that their kids don't watch educational tv enough.

    It's like no one read the *. Didn't know some many guys on E&P were homo for Jobs.
