This sort of scenario was very thoroughly analyzed by William Gibson some 25 years ago in Idoru. From where, famously, we have the quote “Laney had recently noticed that the only people who had titles that clearly described their jobs had jobs he wouldn’t have wanted. If people asked him what he did, he said he was a quantitative analyst.”

I never know what another day brings at work. Changing the world requires a versatile approach ;-D One thing about my future is for sure though - I'll never get married!

My iPhone is misbehaving after an iOS upgrade. So I've bought a back-up cheap android, Nokia. It's like starting a new relationship. Just turning the thing on is difficult at first. Then you've got installing apps like meeting the family and friends. Finally you get comfortable. But an upgrade comes along and things stop working or your eye wanders.

This intrigues me a lot, I wonder at times what happens with smart people and their marriages. 
Like if everybody ends up experiencing a Bill and Melinda gates situation?
I'm still young and I've only spend 5 years with the Girlfriend at this point.
CBCA->CMSA->FMVA->Ba.Sc.Math-stat->CFA1,2,3->CISI->FRM->CQF->IFoA->than what?
The goal is to write all three and four letter combinations and try to make sense of it.

How many privates have been told they will be fine but actually never returned?

I’m guessing that was just a delayed capitalization of Gates.

Haha! Thanks a lot guys, I guess I'm a bit of a "slipper hero". But I do enjoy the jokes far more though.

You're a precocious young fella for your age.

Indeed, we're still young 25-26-ish both of us.
I guess most youngster wait a bit with the marriage until we have an apartment/house.
Which by now could be in 20 years as well, London housing is insane at the moment

My advice, although I haven't been asked for it, is to have lots of babies asap. Forget marriage, careers, education, a roof over your heads.
