You have a party of course! Welcome to adulthood :)

You are Trapped:


Or maybe you're just a labor seller in a global trade driven buyers 
market. You are easily replaceable by one of the 1.x billion people 
that live on 1$/day. All they have to do is sit down in front of MIT's 
free (as in no job for you) OpenCourseWare.

So work your 60 hour week and STFU.
