Harry Freakstorm: And I will still be stuck behind the two women who can't decide whether to get a grande or a venti or if they should go skim milk so they can have a cookie.  And, of course, right after they order, they will change their minds when they look up and see on the huge board "Today's special - Pumpkin Spice".

The sea was angry that day my friends, like an old woman trying to send back coffee to a robot.

At some point we're going to need to abandon this idea that everyone needs to work for their living. As more things are automated, there will not be enough to keep everybody employed.

"We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living."

-Buckminster Fuller

Love it.
