So, I got to watch some TV this weekend. THey were showing this miniseries about how we got to the moon.
It was eerie. All these suited men with glasses going, “I don’t know if this is possible. It might not be possible…But we have to do it.”
And they proceeded to screw it up for the rest of us forever.
HOW many times have I faced that same dillemma in my IT jobs?
Management “we want this”
Me “I don’t think we can do that. I dont’ think it’s possible.”
Managment “Have it ready by next tuesday”
Impossible doesn’t mean impossible anymore. Not for americans.
Of course, we wouldn’t have all these cool toys and stuff to have the jobs we do if it weren’t for NASA. I, of course, worked at NASA for a year intership to learn to do what I do.
So I should be grateful.
But man…we just can’t give no for an answer anymore. Not since we’ve sent a person to the moon.
