Why software sucks: "When you create you are exercising the greatest power in the universe: bringing something that didn’t exist before into the world. Making something for others is a gift. Few people in the world have the privilege of earning a living by creating things."
Ok, so what does that have to do with lawyers ? Simple: lawyers don't create anything ! They basically make a living by making life more and more complicated and pretending to be solving problems, as opposed to ... ahem ... engineers.
Oh, and this post title was inspired by the highly recommended Wondermark by David Malki.
