Minus Q: At first I thought becoming a futurist after I heard a chap on 
the news awhile ago talking about what appeared to be the dialog in an 
episode of
"Stargate G-1" not Atlantis as that’s not as good :D

It seemed like a very easy job as you would have already been paid and 
probably dead by the time they could prove you wrong LOL!

But unfortunately the only position I have seen seem to be a lot harder 
and you have to be able to prove the shit you make up by trends that 
have happened in the past, if you do find an easy position let me know. 
I am sure I could help push up the price of your newly formed Tech R&D firm.
