Talk with a co-worker who has a bit of a motivational problem.

Him: if I had more fun, I would be more productive.
Me: you're not here for fun, that's why they pay us.
Him: how are you motivated?
Me: by money.


A bit later.

Him: do you plan for retirement some day?
Me: no. By then, there won't be retirement anymore. We will eat fried rats in the street.

He starts understanding why I'm wearing black metal shirts.

    @irene yeah we're both metalheads, and also another colleague, but I'm the only one into the sicker ends of metal.

    For example right now, "Kerker aus Zeit" (prison of time) by Lunar Aurora:

    @irene video not available in Germany. :/

    Yeah that album is quite sick, and rumors have it that their tape machine was somewhat broken when recording. It only adds to the charme. ^^

    Lunar Aurora was one of the best German black metal bands at all. One of their later songs that always reminds me of rainy and cold mountains in Norway in summer holiday:

    @irene ah that's more industrial metal, yeah.

    And with enough money, you can hire mercenaries to abduct @rutee07 and then defect to South America.

    @irene well that's already two reasons, and running a torture cellar for innocent victims would be a third one.

    @Fast-Nop I like your optimism!
    Nice and shiny outlook on life!

    Eating rats in the street? bah, in my day, we ate dirt in a hole the ground, and was happy about it!

    I can relate, money doesn't motivate me too much either.

    > It's work, you get paid to do it, what you get from working is money so you stuff shit in your mouth and die one day.

    Speak for yourself. I, for one, want to occasionally do something interesting or have fun at work.
    If I wanted a mind-numbingly boring job that just makes money I'd work at an assembly line.

    @rutee07 Oh, I see! Yes, agree 100%. 😃

    @rutee07 also, a job isn't a hobby project, and professional jobs are paid so that also the not-so-cool things get done.

    And yeah, a chastity belt with C4, that's totally you. ^^
