But it is all so obvious.  If anybody would be paying him, then for
distracting important developers into wasting time with him.  But I
don't think that this happens much.

If this supposed to be business one time, he is still stuck in the
prototyping stage.

Why should he?  Nobody else does.

I mean, get real.  Do you know how many TV sets and cigarettes are sold
around here?

This society is not focused about doing something positive, enriching
and fulfilling with your time.  It is focused about getting rid of it.
And when you spend it by annoying other people, at least you have a
receipt to show.  Beats lung cancer.

I don't think anybody pays him.
