Got invited to go have dinner with some friends, and to watch The Social Network. Or is it 'Social Network'? Interesting that some people try to grind out a living at 35k a year, or 100k a year whatever depending on your line of work, or play poker for similar amounts of money, when some people try to make money, and REAL money, in millions and billions, in business ventures and what not.Â
I guess my question is, WHY do some people go down the invention/business path and some people for the safe jobs? Are some people just born to be risk takers (obv you have to have the right talents etc).. or is it something that you just luck into? Would the nosebleed stakes poker players that came up in no time (think Durrrr, Greenplastic, Krantz, etc.) be as successful if they had found poker post-boom say, in 2008? Or would they have decided that something else was worth their time instead?
It's a good movie though, I found the main protagonist (or is he the villain?) to be not as annoying a character was many have mentioned to me, just seemed like a person that was extremely inept at... life, and was portrayed as someone that was extremely driven and felt wronged by society for not acknowledging his brilliance prior to his success.
Life is weird/difficult sometimes.
