Wait. Why's that? When I hit 50 I'm going into Operation Shutdown.

You've been working every day of yo goddang live since you were 16 right? In any civilized society, 34 years of labor would be a frickin' nough.

My favorite thing about this poll was reading the different choices and remembering when in time I felt that way. Except for the "love it" option, at different points in my life I could have voted for each of them.

Being a programmer has been the greatest thing in my life, on the order of "The most fun you can have with your clothes oh (or even off)." You see, I have programmed in the nude, and unlike one other fun activity usually done naked, i can do programming for hours at a time, and have. It' is the sort of thing I have the stamina to do for hours. Yes it's often frustrating, but when I got home at the end of the day I felt a sense of accomplishment.

I still feel that way even now¹, when I'm writing code, you can "get in The Zone," and you forget everything else. One time, my boss enunciated it, when i mentioned how you can just get into this certain mindset where everything just flows. It can just be magic sometimes. There were times I got so engrossed in my work that I forgot to eat.

(When everything's wrong)
Even now
([it's] keepin' me straight)
([it's] keepin' me strong)
[it] gets to me
Somehow
Even now."
