Is he thinking career, or doing his four years and out?

Naw, they bored him.  His 5 year term ends this fall.

Why does that make me feel old. I could have sworn he just enlisted.

Oh shit, I am definitely drunk.  Please disregard anything posted in, lets say, the last hour from this post and the next 3 hours, unless it seems like it actually makes sense.
Can't say I blame you.

On a personal note, I apologize for making dumb jokes on your facebook Brexit threads. That shit is terrifying and sad.

When someone who is removed from the kind of violence being talked about talks about things like how nice of a turn of phrase "putting some English on it" it's chilling.

I have an upsetting, very icy side. I chose not to enter the military because of it in part. For me the choice to abandon violence, and coercion through it's threat, was an acknowledgement of a potentially dangerous part of my nature that I dare not abrogate responsibility for. It was a spiritual choice, tale forthcoming.

I may not be so removed from what I described as you may think. If I understand what you said that would be even less comfortable in that light. I am not an ignorant civilian glibly making a joke out of that ignorance, but a frighteningly aware one with an often broken sense of humor. I try very hard to be a good person and have many healthy outlets for the vicious aspects of myself, but that only became possible because I chose, and continually Strive, to be what I am.

All that sounds super edgelord.

Yeah. Big difference is that an edgelord or whatever needs a fantasy and so becomes a twat telling folks the tale ad nauseum to reinforce it over and over. I'll tell my story and be done. If your comments hadn't provoked in me a need to tell it, or I didn't have respect for you or for the folks here, it wouldn't get told at all.

it only matters if IT jobs are treated differently than non IT jobs in some way, and if so which of those ways programmers should be treated.  Otherwise it is a completely meaningless distinction.

Also, most of a programmers work is copied, if she is any good at her job, but knowing where to find what she needs to copy is a big part of why she is good at it.

Had a coworker argue with me to the end of the Earth, today, that programming, web development/design, and other obviously IT fields "aren't IT jobs" because they aren't in networking/communications. He had somehow come to the conclusion that his 2 years of college trumped the dictionary definition of the word.

I advised him that one didn't need a college education to read the dictionary. When he pulled up the definition in the dictionary, he decided to backpedal a little bit, dig his heels in, and attack straw man arguments that I never made. Of course, the definition proved me to be right. And on pointing that out, he began to screech, and accuse me of disrespecting him as a programmer.

He told me that it was offensive to tell programmers that their work was copied. How he got that out of "Programmers use systems that are already in place, like operating systems and programs, to create and develop more programs and systems, defining them as IT specialists," I have no idea. But it grabbed the attention of the nearest megalomaniac douchebag, who created a semantics argument so vague and confusing, that I simply had to put on my headphones and ignore them.

Am I just a lazy fuckwit who's been living under a rock all this time? Or is programming a fucking IT job?

I was going to jest as well, but he contributes quite a bit to discussion around here and is quite reasonable.

Nice-guy edginess aside, his original statement didn't seem to me like it was doting the connection of the word to the violence. It seemed like he was doting the connection of the physics of a game of pool to the word, and how that was similarly connected to the bullet physics. Methinks he was just intrigued by the accuracy of the analogy created by the word.
