      All of my bosses that make 5x my salary are masters of one. They are so extremely good at what they do but absolutely nothing else, to a crazy extent. I feel like I’m good at a lot of things but it’s not as lucrative to be this way :/

          Lmao it’s more just that I don’t make very much at all so it’s easier for them to make that many times more than my salary. I’m in biotech

            As an example I had to show my boss recently to use Windex because they were getting ready to use dishwasher detergent to clean a glass window. It’s great.

              Why did you correct them? With that much of a wage gap, you should have popped popcorn to share with the other wage slaves while you watched him try to figure out how to fix what he just did.

                  Unless it is something you had fixed before or proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that you knew how to fix, you are a biotech engineer. Last time I checked Dawn wasn’t a biological entity and the tech angle is suspect at best.

              Yeah see someone who makes decisions like that definitely isn’t making good enough decisions at their job to be getting paid 5x more than you.

      i think that the slight linguistic change from “master of none” -> genitive case turned into the “master to none” which dithers over to the accusative and dative cases is more active and hence a change to a proverb but on purpose to illustrate something greater about seeking rather than attaining.

        I think I love you in a purely plutonic way. That was a spectacular expounding on the linguistic relevance and morphology of the statement as it borders on the philosophical underpinnings. Thank you for that.

    Me: “It’s called ADHD, bitch!” Then I blast off in my rocket ship that was built from about 15 different hyper-fixations but somehow still flies like the badass with superpowers that I am.

    Also… I can’t remember what we were talking about, but I suddenly realized that I have like 4 books I bought off Humble Bundle like 5 years ago about orbital mechanics and aerospace design that I have the sudden and unforgiving urge to read.

      Haha, I wish. That said, I have been studying AI design a lot recently and have like 10 ideas to try.

        I’m on 3 myself - no-carb, no-fat and no-protein. It’s amazing what you can do with rocks.

    I fear not the man who has failed at 1000 things. I fear the man who has failed at one thing 1000 times.
