Time To Get Ill.

This week, Uber’s self-driving big rig made its first delivery, a truckload of 50,000 Budweisers. First they came for our truck drivers’ jobs and I said nothing because I wasn’t a truck driver. But pretty soon, the automitons came for all our jobs, leaving us with a hell of a lot more free time — yeah, that’s a nice way to frame it.

That said, we better get used to having a lot more time off. Let’s get some practice in by thinking of new and exciting ways to fill each and every day this coming week. How about it?
