My dad retired from the Navy. He worked with computers.
I think my dad is going to get a job where he has to turn on something before it goes off. And if it goes off the company has to pay $1.2 million to turn it back on. It’s a really easy job if you don’t fall asleep or get tired of it.
No it’s not easy. He has to look at every single program in the whole shipyard. He’ll be the one protecting the system.
Every single system has it’s properties, so a bunch of stuff goes on, and he’s responsible for monitoring all these things at once.
I’ll probably not join the Navy, but I want to travel.
When I grow up I want to be a miner.
That’s not a good idea. They don’t do that anymore, because they have drills.
Yes, they do. I’ll control the drills.
Oh, you have to be really good at computers to do that.
I’m good at computers, or I’ll just use a pickaxe. I’m going to mine and then sell.
You’ll have to make a pretty large area to keep on going, because it could collapse.
Or, I could just build things. Be a scavenger. Get things. Build something with it. Sell it and get money.
I once heard a kid had a dream that he could mine to Africa, but you can’t do that.
Yes, you can.
You’ll need a drill. It will need to be waterproof and heatproof. But be careful to not hit Earth’s core! If you put anything, even a tiny pebble, in the core, the whole planet would just collapse. The core is surrounded by lava, so if you have enough power to get to the core you will have the ability to destroy the world.
Yes, all it takes is a pebble, or even a stick!
