People are missing the point
For you folks who are scoring this flash for it's artistic value only ... you're missing the point. This flash points out how we've all been run through the 12 year puppy mill of school that's been forced onto us, all of which was pre-planned so no real thought was necessary. Then we go to college to pursue a degree in something that interests us, find out we have to start making decisions about classes to take, etc. This whole time we still have this notion that we're going to do something with our lives; make an impact on the world. We graduate, get a job, and before we know it the mundane work, the quest for greater corporate profits, and the idiocy / banalityof our co-workers, bosses and higher ups just sucks the motivation right out of us.
Then, we wake up one day and realize we're one of those "lifers" ... that 50yo guy we used to look at, and frown upon because he'd only come in, do the bare minimum work to get by, and screw off the rest of his time looking at web-sites where he could buy like vacations, a new tv, some new music, etc ... stuff to try to fill the void left in him after he realized his job has no real sense of fulfillment because the company doesn't want you to do your best work, they just want you to crank out work as fast as possible and with minimal chance of a law-suit. We used to look on that guy...but we wake up one day, look up from our computer monitor surfing CraigsList for a new netbook computer we don't really need, stare at our calendar with the week we have vacation circled in bright red ink since that's the only thing we have to look forward to...we wake up and realize we're now "that guy".
Life seems to be meant for so much more, but some how we fell into this worker bee rut, hopped on the treadmill (since that's how we were taught...our parents did it, our teachers did it, ...everyone did it), and it's how we've been conditioned through corporate commercials and propaganda. And now we're 50, and there's really only 10-15 years more to work until retirement, and the time has drifted away so fast anyways, might as well just keep your head down, do the minimum required and idle on by until retirement.
That is office / corporate / drone life as we know it today. And this flash pointed that out very well.
