    If a money tree grew in the backyard, I'd never spend another day at work in my life. There are so many things to see and do, so many places to visit and so many things to experience.

    I almost universally dislike work and give no fucks in general for the people I work with. Some are okay and I'd have a beer with, but most I tolerate because I have to.

    "Work" is largely just a collection of people who need constant help. I think I'd dislike "work" far less if, at any given time or place, the people I worked with didn't require constant motivation to stop retarding everyone and every thing around them, and were even 10% more self sufficient.

    The problem with Grandpa Elvis is this:

    "I played through RDR2 and now I'm bored...The graphics aren't crash hot on my RX470, and I can't afford a new card."
    "Why, you impudent young pup! Back in my day, we played Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in glorious 8 bit on our Nintendo Entertainment System, and we couldn't get enough of it."
    "Wow Grandpa Elvis! That sounds so retro! When was this?"
    "Well, let me see.... *counts back on fingers* .....I do believe it was Tuesday...."

    There's good people doing hi-res texture packs for old games, so you can retro in hipster fashion.

    Same great game play with the scent of hand hewn (by someone who I'm sure wears flannel and has a lumberjack beard) open source high resolution graphics.

    /definitely not playing quake 1 for hours each night this week.

    I love it. There's so much wtf about it that you'd just have to laugh.

    It's sad that some of the things that are being lampooned on that site, exist in one or more $shitwares that I have to use daily.

    This is where I throw tact out the window, and just email my vendors the link with a "Hey, this reminds me of your software" comment attached.
