This was so funny!
I tell you what, you become pretty normal real quick as soon as you stop drinking loads of coffee ☕️

After working years as a programmer you have been burned out, isolated and depressed but you collected enough money to start gardening in your own zen garden with casscades, casscades absolutely needed!

would be fun if he wasn't right, unfortunately pretty much all if it is a sad truth (though may seem like a joke at first)

Learn to think with programming.

I just hate the words " Give up " "too hard" "no" "enough" and discouragements ~ your video title sucks yo. "Just do it " is the way to go say " YES " to everything. People make their own choices and live with them and its devil's deal to whisper it's cheaper thoughts to people.

I prefer learn how to code than sympathize with people lol
Qibby (3 days ago)
thanks god, I'll kill myself
About your last point, I was born with Aspergers, so even if I didn't code, I've been a rational being my whole life. I mean, I used to do math problems for fun. By the way, in case anyone thinks I believe the whole thing, I can tell most of this video was sarcastic, so I'm not taking all of it literally. I do have trouble discerning factual/fictional context at times, but I've improved over time a bit.

Abdullah Abu Samra (5 days ago)
dude , your reasons doesn't make sense at all , you have a lot of mixture feeling PLZ FIX YOUR THOUGHTS , none of your reasons are rational at all MR.RATIONAL and simply the harder you work the more you gain in any aspect of life , DONE ...
Elaine McCarty (5 days ago)
I got a great laugh when he said a lot of programmers spend the day being a shoulder to cry on. Funny guy! Btw, I am ready for that position now.
Brendan H (6 days ago)
your'e a funny man
Mike Malone (6 days ago)
The point he's making is, don't get into Software Engineering if you plan on half-assing your job. When you do that it means people like me have to get called in to fix your bad code. Don't just become an engineer because you want a six figure salary or higher. Do it because you are passionate about technology. There's nothing worse than performing a job that you hate, even if the money is good.

Older wiser...started with BASIC...now with an IDE and ideas for Arduino...so, whatever dude..oh, and I'm in my 60's... just for fun. I don't code...I find problems to solve...better. For myself. Also to fix crapola software done with too many lines..of code. Ugh! Elegant and small is far more efficient. And you don't get sued either...LOL Social skills acquired before this internet...and live in Compton...go figure? Python is interesting and rather useful for some things now. Useless advice...but dry sarcasm isn't your forte, try again...click

Vic G (14 days ago)
you are so right. I don't code anymore. I just make sure that other engineers continue to do so. Hopefully I will make it to retirement before the singularity. That's when I will be off GRID.

This must divide the community. Those, who are in the middle of this process and define themselves about it, will not love such thoughts. Those, who know how the hare is really running, will agree with him because they know that he is 100% right.

Am i weird for laughing at his joke when he said "if you learn coding you become a rational being, and you're not able to communicate with the rest of the population anymore", oh and yeah only introverts understand his sense of humor.
