Yes, what you say is totally true. But I've now arrived in the upper level of the pyramid scheme and am offering a course on Japanese linguistics. Until I got there I've been teaching languages (English, Japanese, Portuguese with a strange accent) for nearly a decade, a skill that was a nice by-product of my academic wankery and personal interests. Then again, even Jay worked as a teacher, so I know it doesn't count. Buuuuut, I've also helped my aunt in the bakery and sold vanilla ice-cream in front of an office building from 8 to 6 for a few months. So if you compare me with Nou I've totally done actual value-creating work before finally reaching the Ponzi scheme level where I don't need to do that anymore.
Now back to seriousness, what I was actually referring to is that there are a bunch of very harsh job markets out there. Corporate business has some strict rules, crazy competitiveness and is often merciless. Compared to that we both live in a nice comfy bubble. Although, yours is a bit fluffier, I believe.
Also, there's the minimum wage job market, which is a completely different shark tank.
