A colleague of mine used to work for a well know software games company.
He has vowed never again to work in the software gaming industry after his experience - I heard bits of what it was like and for an industry that provides "entertainment" to other people, the amount of suffering it creates in its employees is just one huge brain***k of cognitive dissonance given the goal is to create happiness for its customers.

A job site I'm subscribed to (too lazy to unreg, just set email client to junk it)
- suggested job: AS/400 System Engineer - I've never set those options (AS/400 nor SysEngin) as prefs in any job site ever (hell never touched anything AS/400)
- suggested a Diploma course: Professional Diploma in Counter Terrorism
What!!?? It's an IT Jobs only site! where did that course come from?
(or is terrorism also related to AS/400?)
Either way to old to give a sh*t, too old to go to school (well just don't want to), way too old to pick a fight!
Counter terrorism??? You there!!! stand still while I fetch my stick!!! (Firearms and even weaponised knives are illegal here.)
...gotta stop looking in my Junk mail folder (even when really really bored), also absolutely don't need Louie Vution bags nor Spanish real estate anyway.
