    You are free to spin things however you wish, Phattonez.

    Sounds to me like you are a bit closer to Nietzsche than Socrates, however.

    Then you don't know much about me. I'm far from a nihilist. According to Socrates, people always do what they perceive to be good. So we are always "greedy." Take away the negative connotation of the word and it makes sense.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    I can relate, though not to the same extent as you. Last month my secretary, on her regular salary, made four times the amount I did.

    Being self employed can be tough at times. In the long run, it should all work out.

    Employed in a field that has a 50% attrition rate after 5 years in the profession. Crappy job = job security.
