Listen to Your Elders

So you're finishing school soon, and you'd like to become a professional magician. You want to have a career that you can fall back on, but what? Well, why not take advice from a 17 year old that you met on the Internet?

You can't make this stuff up. Check out the second reply on this Cafe post, authored by "Kyle the Great."

As much as I'd love to tear him apart, I think his post speaks for itself. Just another example of what happens when you give a voice to people who have no business wielding one. (Thanks Sarc. Mag.)

Besides, Why would you want to take any kind of advice from someone who dresses like this?

Looking at Kyles reviews/client list, I wouldn't say he'd be the best person to take career advice from.....

Just clicked on the link and read the thread (I do not go to the CraPe' and read the posts, ever). That was some of the lamest crap I've ever seen! A bunch of also-rans giving advice to a whole class who have no idea what they are doing.

What the guy needed to hear was "Dude, magic is your hobby. If you can make a few bucks, good for you. Go to college and learn a marketable profession. Use it to finance your magic hobby and have some fun."

Q: Why did the magician hope to win the lottery?
A: So he could afford to keep performing.
