Exotic means there, not here. Them, not us. You, but definitely not me. Exotic is a word defined by the speaker’s perspective, which assumes dominance and normalcy over the person being called exotic.

I’m not a parrot. So don’t call me exotic.

It’s a micro-aggression. It’s a backhanded compliment. And it’s simply inaccurate.

Lockheed Martin - Helping the Future Arrive

Oh, what a …

At Lockheed Martin, helping the future arrive is what we do. Because we solve the great problems of our times. We create the innovative technologies that define eras.

The great problems of our times is a joke, right? I’d like to see a fusion reactor and routine flights to mars, for sure. But a moving autonomous laser weapon shooting a planes out of the sky??? Btw, nobody wants to work on your transparent flatscreens with glowing touch interafaces.

"When my children are settled, I am going to retire and devote more time to my meditation. Every time you meditate, you get a little further from the world. You become more and more like the lotus, which grows in the water, but never touches the water.""So what’s the benefit of withdrawing from the world?""Meditation is like a glass of juice. I can describe the glass of juice to you. But you’re not going to know the glass of juice until you taste it."
