A long time ago in a far away kingdom the king was beset by tragedy. His family died, his kingdom was suffering a great drought, and his treasury was running low. In desperation, the king called his wise men and mystics and asked them to create for him a magical object that would end his troubles.

The king's wise men and mystics set to the task of creating this magical object. And after much thought and deliberation they presented themselves to the king. "O king," they cried, "we have created for you a magic ring. All you must do is gaze upon it and your troubles will end."

The king, desperate for his troubles to end, took the ring and gazed upon it, and in doing so saw an inscription.

"This, too, shall pass."

Three things we haven't learned from WannaCry

1: BACK UP YOUR DAMN SYSTEMS!

2: Tech writers put "WannaCry" in a headline when they don't have anything worthwhile to say.

3: Perspective is everything. This isn't a security issue. It's a Disaster Recovery issue. If you look at this like a catastrophic outage, which is it, the correct course of action becomes clear.

As a Libertarian, I staunchly oppose any government interference in or regulation of dueling.

Now- am I being serious or satirical? And isn't it great to live in a world where the two are virtually indistinguishable?

Nor the thing it buys. Which doesn't mean the rich aren't happy. The rich people know aren't happy because of their wealth, though.

If you can't be happy sitting on a park bench alone with your thoughts, then maybe you should ask why not.
