I am twenty-one years old and I just got off the phone with a Fidelity
Mutual representative because I had to allocate funds into a couple aggressive growth
accounts for my 403b
and request written confirmation. I realized, in doing so, a couple things:
- I just did something and I don't know what I did.
- I should be drinking a beer in the sun right now.
- I will not live to see the invent of time machines.
Because right now I'm twenty-one years old and a Corporate Dropout
, but when I'm 59 I'll have (calculated as an estimation) $17 million
dollars from this 403b retirement account, and if time machines existed, I would have lined the pockets of my dirty, baggy pants
with crisp 2040 AD $1000 bills
And, being a huge fan of the Back to the Future
series, this comes as a hugely disappointing realization to me.
I just feel required to relate to any of you other daydreaming
techheads that the fact that you are poor and bored
right now is a clear sign that either time machines will never be invented, or that you'll certainly be dead, or at least too poor and unimportant, to use them when they are.
And I was really looking forward to plugging in my flux capacitor
