Beng serious here for a moment.
The thing is a couple of years ago, i had this great idea for a business. I was working on it for a while and a couple of weeks before i was ready to actualy fund the thing i noticed that while i was planning things out, someone went out and did th exact thing i was planning on doing. I was actually quite devastated by that as i put an awful lot of work into the project, and even if it had the potential to be highly profitable it was a very nieche market i was targeting...much two small for two competing companies offering identical services and one of those with a significant head start. So i abandoned the idea.
Until recently when on a whim i decided to check on how that guy is doing. As it turn out quite well, but to my suprise while we obviously started with the same idea, he took it in a rather different direction that i was thinking off and while its obvious that he was toying with the same ideas as me at the start, that aspect of the business and an additional source of revenue is now almost criminally stagnant. And in the time since, i have actually expanded on an idea, thought of many magnificent ways to market the thing, increase the sources of revenue and even found a potential to recieve a rather large government grant from an area that our government really, REALLY likes to spend money on.
So heres the thing. I dont have nearly as many resources as i did few years ago to start the damn thing myself again from scratch. Also, the guy made quite a few industry connections without which a new upstart would have little chance of success. So basicall the only way to get ths going if i try and score a job wth that guy which doesnt actually bother me, with the numbers ive come up with im pretty sure i can walk in and get hired, the problem being some of those ideas are actually really good, and damn it i want to capitalse on them! I dont mind making that guy a lot of money, providing i make a lot of money as well. But making that guy a lot of money, while i earn a measly middle management salary or something...fuck it id rather let the idea die with me. Also am wary of the chance that i might come in with something good, get turned away, and then have the other guy exploit what i just explained to him trying to get hired. Ive been burned that way before.
So thats what im doing awake in bed at 4am. Thinking of how to say "hire me for now, but when this pays off you better fucking make me partner".
Also, if i ever become rich, the first money i make im going to speng on BUYNG A FUCKING ROGUE RUSSIAN NUKE AND BOMBING THE HELL OUT OF THOSE ******S AT HP BECAUSE THEY FUCKING CANT MAKE COMPUTERS WORTH FOR SHIT ANYMORE! I JUST PRESSED THE TRAY EJECT BUTTON AND IT CERTAINLY DID EJECT THE TRAY...STRAIGHT OUT OF THE FUCKING COMPUTER!!! HOW CAN A FUCKING DVD TRAY FLY OUT OF THE DAMN THING, WHO WAS THE INCOMPETENT MOTHER****** WHO DESIGNED THIS LAPTOP
For fucks sake i mean seriousy
