Hi-tech life is hard.
You work long hours, paying with your free time and energy for the perks you get. You make nice salaries, you get to see the world, but you never get to see your girlfriend, or the light of day when you leave the office.
And most of all, let’s face it, you work very hard, usually for something that will not really change the world. Imagine it – right now, there are many thousands of engineers and programmers frantically working to be the first to offer the world a better way of swapping recipes, sharing your 987346039463 pictures of your newborn, and selling you Viagra.

Here is another engineer:

how will they feel when that are 65? Will they feel they spent their youth properly? giving the world new meaning?
But I regress.
So there I was, talking with a few friends, all male of course. All of us have been so busy lately, that we all have been aiming to get a haircut for over 3 months and never had the time. We all looked like we could sing with the Beatles.


So the other day I was thinking to myself. It’s all about finding the need, and filling it. Here I am, at a Hi-Tech district. 30,000 men with no fashion taste, no spare time, and desperate need of a haircut once i a while. Lets open a Barber-Shop!!!
Just imagine, A small spot in the middle of the area. 2 barbers, with extra fast scissors. A money making, gold egg laying, brilliant idea!
Happy as can be, already lying in a beach in Hawaii with a drink from my millions, I joined the gang to go get lunch. Making certain I keep a normal face, not to reveal my new plan, I tagged along as we crossed to a new place one street over. I looked around as this was a spot I have not been to for a while, and stood still.
How could they? The Bastards! The thieves! There it was. My Idea. A brand new men’s Barber Shop. And yes, they were doing well…
