Civilization IV

I can’t wait to get my hands on Civilization IV, the latest edition of the greatest computer game ever. I am very much looking forward to spending a gazillion hours building cities, inventing new technologies and creating a strong army to crush all who dare stands against me, thus setting the foundation for my glorious empire to last for a million generations.

However, it’s impossible to play Civilization IV on my four-year-old Toshiba laptop since it doesn’t even meet the minimum game requirements. Four years is a long time in the digital world, and my beloved companion is ready to join the ranks of obsolete computer junk. It is time to upgrade.

But to buy a new computer, I need cash. To raise cash, I need a job. But after getting a job, I wouldn’t have time to play Civilization IV. And if I can’t play the game, it’s pointless to splurge a few grand on a new desktop. This means there’s no urgency for me to get a job, and the best thing to do is maintain the status quo — another reason for my existence as a useless slacker.

Spare change, anyone?
