Have you even stopped to consider how many jobs this explosion has created?

Meade and Wags need to trade houses.

Wags's neighbors will be happy. Meade will have something new to obsess about, since Wags's lawn is imperfect and needs fixing. Wags doesn't care, so he'll be happy. Meade's old neighbors will probably be most relieved.

All good.

Fault should never be a matter of chance. There should always be some intent involved, even if that intent is simply a careless or reckless attitude which caused injury, essentially a mindset whereby you ignored danger, perhaps even courted it. But when injury occurs people have a tendency to search for fault and crave retribution, not to benefit the victim nor to protect themselves, but rather to punish the person responsible, even if such responsibility is simply a matter of chance.

Why do we do this? Is it because we believe that on some level there is no such thing as chance? That all events are calculable? The lottery winner is admired for his wisdom, the victim of tragedy secretly disdained for his lack? Perhaps chaos frightens us while predictability gives us comfort. We like to believe that we are in control, even while disaster swirls about us.

We are a product of our experiences. Our triumphs and failures are not fully our own, but a matter of chance, a complicated mathematical equation that could stretch around the world three times. The doctor, the teacher, the burglar, the terrorist... each person lives with different memories, and those experiences shape who we are.

So as you search for answers and demand vengeance, keep in mind that fellow human beings began their existence exactly as you did. A collection of cells, growing into tiny organs and eventually an infant, fascinated by shapes and colors. Religion and politics were taught to them. And we all, in our own way, did that teaching.

Ohhh... to be in your early 20's and pulling in 60K or more, working in one of the most amazing office complexes in the country, taking your chef-made meal to the fucking corporate treehouse for your lunch break.

To suffer through that when you should be backpacking through Europe on your parents dime is truly a travesty of social justice.

I'm sure there are many people at Epic who work their asses off, but let's not lose perspective here, it's not a fucking coal mine.
