To everyone who has fired me or has wanted to.

I was just reading some George Bernard Shaw and came upon this:

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man."

Creativity and change, that is, progress, depend upon the unreasonable.

right now i'm trying to bend a whole bloody culture my way. I've had it with dragons, gold, double luck, fish tank, lion dances and joss sticks.
In the end the world will win. but what the heck.
I was far too reasonable in some of the jobs i've had and that only lead to exit anyway.
