For all you IT guys. This one is for you.
The Blomsma Code - Hug a developer!
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
Too funny. Luckily I am a Network Engineer, so I never have to deal with things like that happening to me
Technical Project Managers changing their minds. Never happens. Right. I resemble that remark.
I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop!!
Politically Incorrect Self Defense
Some days I am so glad I got out of the IT industry.
Of course, now I just do IT support for my shop for free....
It takes a college degree to break'em;
and a high school education to fix'em!
Cute. As a PC tech, I can relate to that:
How many computer programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
None! It's a hardware problem!
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch; Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."

That little video reminded me; I don't miss the IT field nor all the idiots I worked for....
It reminds me of all those Dilbert cartoons in the Sunday paper.
"The sword dose not cause the murder, and the maker of the sword dose not bear sin" Rabbi Solomon ben Isaac 11th century
as a recently-made ex-IT person (almost 3 months in police academy) I can understand and horribly relate to most of those signs and the feelings those situations produce
oh....and I still do support for family friends

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
I never, ever touch a computer unless it is work related and the time is billable. family and friends ask me to look at their computer, I just say, what version of Linux is it running? Sorry, I am not familiar with windows.
The last picture of the kid who had 6 intensive weeks of VB looks like alot of the consultants I saw in my earlier time.
Now I work for a large consulting company. I couldn't hug a programmer if my life depended on it. Most of my team is in India and the few remaining in the US are located in a different state than me.
I don't do binary, but I've spent a fair amount of time on assembly language and many years in C++. Now I've slowed down to Java, SQL and Unix shell programming.
Believe it or not, that video could easily describe the construction industry.
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
love and thanks of man and woman."

While I am still doing development work it is not as bad as it use to be, I do not miss some previous employers. Also on the software/hardware joke it depends if you are strictly software or do both hardware and software which I do not mind.
And one of my favorite sayings...
"There are 10 people in the world those who can read binary and those who cannot."
