    Its fun to get paid to build things with your mind.

    The fact that something, if not someone, listens to what I have to say
  • 12
    Because the field is intellectually stimulating, relevant, well paying, and relatively stable. Plus I like making things.
  • 2
    Because I can’t live without doing this. I’m forced to. This is my form of self-expression

    Fun, I have been in love with computers and programming since I was around 7 years old

    And I have the luxury of working with that as a living

    And on top of that it pays well :)

    Money of course but as long as I can live a normal life, I don't care much about the amount as long as I'm intellectually challenged and have a great environment and great colleagues!

    @linuxxx pretty sure you're not intellectually challenged :p

    @RememberMe Maybe this saying has a different meaning then? I mean this as having to use my brain a lot in complex but very interesting material.

    @linuxxx indeed. It's an euphemism. https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/...,)%20Of%20low%20intelligence%3B%20stupid.

    @linuxxx Lol, do you mean "intellectually stimulated". Yes, you can read "intellectually challenged" both ways.
  • 2
    @linuxxx
    “X-challenged” = “Fails at X”

    Therefore:
    “Vertically challenged” = short
    “Intellectually challenged” = idiot

    @RememberMe Oh yeah I did not mean that πŸ˜…

    @Root @Demolishun Yeah got it now. Not sure how to properly describe this but I guess you get what I mean :)

    @linuxxx Its perfectly okay to be linguistically challenged.
  • 1
    @Root Is challenged the new retarded?
  • 2
    @Demolishun I get that its a joke but I think this is more of a literal translation thing as literally translating this from English to Dutch would get the meaning that I meant :)

    Everything except passion

    @Demolishun The new retarded is “minimally exceptional”. Everything must sound varying degrees of positive because negatives might hurt someone’s feelings.

    Fucking hell.

    @Root emotionally challenged, eh? πŸ€”
  • 3
    @iiii I think I’m emotional challenged. I don’t really understand them, and don’t really have them either.
  • 3
    @Root same. Ten years ago I was pretty sure I understand how people work. Now I'm sure I understand Jack shit about these alien lifeforms. πŸ˜’

    I like learning new things..
    And also love bug hunt & kill.. 😈

    I need the money and actually like coding. So it is the least of all evils to do just that.

    I would still code without the need to get money. But i would also game and do other stuff a lot more.
  • 2
    Because I like learning new things!

    Genuinely love programming, the fact I can use it to make things that are useful to me or friends, and money
