A job fair on another planet
The career that everyone dangled in my eyes was "legacy financial planner". Then another guy tries to get me to become a busboy on a local Hilton Hotel on the planet.
It's as if people could chose to go back in time and live in times when you could count on social security.
I guess if a habitable planet always face the same side of its Sun, its economy would be affected. I doubt it would have "legacy systems" with nightly cycles written in COBOL.
I wonder, maybe in fifty years, people who can't find work will become settlers on Mars.
More team building at work: a dream about a bicycle race inside the Metro tunnels, riding on the rail guard. Wind resistance protections mandatory. The lesson of team building sessions at work: "You don't worry about what you can't do anything about." I remember a jam session like this at work in 1998. And so last night's weird dream. You never retire.
