Who needs them?

Well, I post today to rant about my Family. Not many people enjoy the company of my family and yet my parents insist that we spend time with them. Most of the time I reside in my room or in front of the TV playing Guitar Hero while they're around because I can't bear to be in their presence and I sure hope they realise this. Teen Angst you say? No, my family are just dumb. Really dumb and I feel that being near them their dumb will rub off on me and I don't want to risk it. [/rant]

Ok so onto a better topic. As of late a movie called 'The Social Network' came out (I do advise everyone to go watch it, it's a brilliant depiction of the events prior to the release of Facebook. Hilarious movie and very entertaining) and one of my best friends saw it. Now this inspired him to want to write a program and make lot's of money. He has no previous programming experience and I being the only one of his friends who attempted programming (ATTEMPTED, it was boring as fuck so I gave up) he comes to me and starts asking me questions, asking me to go to university with him and so on. So, me being a kind person I pointed out that he has the mindset of a toddler who sees a fireman and wants to be a fireman then sees a police officer and then wants to be a police officer. He rages about how he's  been wanting to write a program for years and blah blah blah. Surprising that it took a movie for his many years of wanting to do something for it to bubble to the surface and make him do it. Anyway because I don't want him to fail I brought out my old programming books and have slowly (And boringly) been teaching myself programming again. I started that about a week ago, offered him the software and the books but he still hasn't come to get them. He has about as much motivation as a rock.
