Quoted from girloveswaffles:

September 1972: [quoted image]

I was 10 years old... and this thing hit me like a ton of bricks... The Phucking Magnovox Oddessy started my facination with video games and computers... led to my current job as a software engineer for a major American bank, so not sure if this was a spawn of Satan himself, or just the precursor of the technonlogy that brought me so much pain and suffering that I now take daily for the constant noshing of bits and bytes... and it got really tiring being the "Family Computer Support Help Desk" for so many years... I said when I was 18 I didn't want to go into computers as a career because I would end up writing code for a bank and be pissed off all the time... seems even back then I had some prescience.
