Many years ago I saw a comment on Slashdot that just exuded raw bitterness. It was so good that I had to save it. Unfortunately, I can’t find the actual comment anymore for the citation, but here is what it said:

As someone for whom the precipice of middle age is steps away, it doesn’t bother me if something I create becomes smarter than me, surpasses me and even sidelines me in the future. I will toil away the rest of my life working for The Man doing trivial things on a game I never wanted to play, for people I wouldn’t piss on should they catch fire, to further goals I don’t agree with.

edit: Found it
