Why I am a Shirker, On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs, and The Gervais Principle, Or The Office According to “The Office”

Things that stuck with me:

Very lucid takes on the modern "thought economy" and how the modern "thought workplace" is structured. Its all bullshit! My take away is the only way to win is to play enough to make enough money early on to be able to buy back the rest of your life and not play. I.E. financial independence. I guess that makes me a loser by the Gervais Principle, which I am fine with. It seems the most ethical and least soul crushing. Fuck capitalism.
