Nobel Prize

The local news guy on TV just said, "Imagine waking up to discover that you'd won the Nobel Prize! Well, it happened to one local woman..."

As if the Nobel Prize were a lottery given out at random. No mention of her years of hard work, just the cash prize that she is being forced to share with some other lucky man.

That's what the whole Nobel thing is about, right? Luck. It's a giant multi-country powerball lottery for smart people.

Now I remember why I don't watch local news or TV news in general. Focus on the result, not the process or the hard work.

Imagine waking up to discover that you'd written a best selling novel, it happened to one local man.

Because that's how the world works for stupid people. Things just drop out of the sky. People who succeed are just lucky. Sigh.
