Talenton April 28, 2014 at 6:00 am
One of my favorite tropes that I’ve seen a couple times is when someone is extremely talented at something they hate. Imagine a classical violinist dazzling a crowd of concertgoers while rolling his eyes and thinking, “ugh! this is boring as hell, I wish I were watching reruns of Friends.” Or a quarterback in the middle of the Super Bowl hoping to go home early because he’s “not really a sports guy.”
But most people hate their jobs anyway so why should anyone be excluded? Let’s just randomly assign jobs and call it a day. Sure, society will crumble when a prison inmate is assigned “president” but you don’t get progress without trying new things.

Talent for shooting guns? Yup.
Laser sight, red dot sight or telescopic sight or auto aim scope (best), training, match ammo, improved trigger, match grade barrel, and custom grips.
If training is considered “buying talent”, would that mean I can compensate for less hours by paying more for supposedly better training? Like can I get the training of three weeks straight in one second when I’m paying enough?
Depends on how much talent you need.
One second? Soon. (See implanted memories research).
Dat “motorboat” shirt
I don’t see much of a danger for society with that. The main reason to get into prison in the first place is not to have enough money (for buying a successful defense and, for long-term success, buying the lawmakers). Also enough money makes some basic crimes rather pointless anyway, but then actual guilt does not play all that much into convictions if you are poor. Instead it’s just important what kind of verdict would complement the prosecutor’s track record best, and he’ll hand you a plea deal for that or else.
The largest disruption will happen if you accidentally do not pick an actual crook and get one who does not know or appreciate the flow of money for keeping politics with a sense of direction.
That would be a serious blow for the political system. If you pick a leader of syndicated crime, things will just work smoothly. But then the most openly organized crime syndicate in the U.S.A. already is the government. It does not make much sense to go elsewhere if you are out for making your money screwing over the general populace.
Why is his hair pink…?
Hobo with a Shotgun… the Musical?
Hey man, some days I wonder if I was really cut-out for all this world domination stuff…
… like maybe I should have been a massage therapist. But, then I’d have to touch people…
… Or the guy who greets you at the door at fancy hotels. But then I’d have to talk to people…
Eventually I always come to the same realization, that the one thing I’m really good at is not liking people.
And if I conquer the world, I can build a really big house, on a really remote hill, far far away, from any other people.
But I’m not really an evil guy.
“And this double-barrelled shotgun will produce a nice fourth harmonic above C#.”
And progress is a good thing?
Is that the guy out of Fleet Foxes?
