I thought this was about the girl being drunk, so here's my similar one. I text a girl to come hang out at my house if she wants. She says to call her and I realize she's too drunk when I do. I tell her I'd be happy to come pick her up because she's at work (bartender). She tells me not to worry and she'll get an Uber if she decides to come.

In short, she decides to drive to my place, and she gets a DUI. I get a call from her coworkers telling me they didn't realize she was gone and they were worried. I literally went driving to make sure she was okay and got to see her walking the line. Her car was totaled as she drove into some trees. I wish I could say this was the first red flag and I had caught on right away.

If you want a job now, as in right now, software development is the best place to start. If you want a job soon that leads to other branches like AI, machine learning, cybersecurity, hell maybe even data science, software development is still the way to go.

If you know of an opportunity you will be able to get a data science job at Facebook or Google, then I would go with that. I guess my point is that it depends what your situation is, but software development has the most potential now.

Yeah, exactly. It was borderline movie quality weekly. It wasn't something you got from action shows and it certainly wasn't something you got aimed at young audiences. It was proof of concept that HBO quality was doable in prime time as technology improved. I think shows like this made HBO step up their game, honestly, and we got some incredible shows following.

I would actually say the same about Freaks and Geeks. It was a comedy with a movie quality writing and cast every episode. It was insanely well done. I think these failed because they were close but didn't hit the mark. The first show I saw where I think they achieved cinema at home was Lost.
