Do you remember the ending of the film Trainspotting? It starts "Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television. ..."
Now someone has done the equivalent based on the job of a system administrator a.k.a. sysadmin. This one starts "Choose no life. Choose sysadminning. Choose no career. Choose no family. ..." And they've prepared this as a t-shirt and are trying to sell it.
It's dark, depressing even, but very funny. I'm not a sysadmin but I admire the people who are.
