And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.
This is so deep I’m gonna reevaluate my life
unless the point of this post is complete nihilism i don’t understand how this is deep at all. “fuck. i’m totally glad i made that skeleton post about how nothing matters and we will all die in the end and put it on the internet.”
yes true we will all die but the logic of this post implies that nothing is worthwhile and that’s weird. clearly op thinks convincing us of the rightness of their nihilism is important and that is paradoxical. this post is so weird and boring
