I wouldn’t try to change the course of history - who knows if you will make it worse. I probably would try to become friends with historical figures and avoid publicity.

The cigarettes were not the point. The point is welcome to reality of the world. One day you will have to come to terms with how the world works. We achieve personal gain at the expense of others(even the animal kingdom works this way).

The billions of people of our generation today are enjoying our RF communication devices perfected for battlefield strategies to connect to others via the internet to complain on fishbowl using products transported via the interstate systems built to transport military equipment while we travel on airplanes fitted with jet engines first conceived to kill in aerial dogfights.

So I think we should honor the men and women who died so you can find your favorite ice cream using GPS, and not trying to deny any blame to ourselves by “saying is not justified” of course it’s not but don’t be saying that while you enjoy its benefits to yourself.

Live nicely for a couple of years before I get thrown into an internment camp and lose all my possessions.

Does having a PMP certification hold any water in digital media? Do folks care? I’ve been using PMI resources to help solve problems / improve stuff at my org, and I’m tempted to get the full cert but I’m not sure if it’d actually mean anything / have a meaningful impact on my career or pay.

It’s not a huge investment in time or money but if it doesn’t have much of an impact I’d rather just keep reading free resources online on my own time
