What are you supposed to do if you don't have enough time to watch tv?
 
Or if you quit your job and can't find another? We're in the rare career where we are paid enough, and jobs are available enough, that it's an option to just up and quit. In fact, a lot of folks who have quit Mozilla for a while are planning to do "nothing" for a while. But it is the height of arrogance to tell others to do the same, particularly in these trying times for so many others.

We're lucky, this time around. How about a manifesto about helping your fellow man?
 
“Or if you already don’t watch TV?” uh then you could quit dicking around on the internet
 
Oddly enough, they (the Holstee guys) wrote their manifesto in 2009, very firmly in the current recession, after quitting their jobs. So I guess it worked for them, or something. Not that I'd give that advice to anyone untempered with caution.
 
+Dustin Mitchell I disagree with your assessment, and I think you're missing the point. It's not about arrogance, it's about pursuing your passion. It's also not for everyone, and presumably those who follow the advice on the poster are self-selecting.
 
Sure - it's become something of a sore spot for me, though.
