[text] Why quit my programming job to become a diamond miner. I used to be a programmer. I worked in an office staring at a computer screen all day. I was good at my job but I wasnt happy. Then I found out about diamond mining. The thing about diamonds is that several armed groups are fighting over control of the mines. But my C skills transfer pretty well to my AK47. Sure the work is hard. I have to be constantly on the lookout for land mines and the pay is terrible. But m my own boss and I get to work outdoors. And the best part is I dont have to deal with people asking me to fix their printer anymore.
