Jack Ma Takes the Title for Bombastico Fantastico

Jack Ma is a rich-as-fuck Asian billionaire who owns Alibaba and something motivates people in various elevated worlds to get pontifical.  Yesterday, Stephen Hawking, who is probably not rich as fuck, predicted we must get to space or we're all going to die but his clever calculations failed to accept that most of us will die anyway in that model.  Today, however, we have Jack Ma telling us in thirty years people will only need a four-hour workday.  (RT:  Jack Ma predicts in 30yrs people will work 4 hours a day)

Watson:  those two seriously need to work out their fantasies 

They probably don't hang out together, mate.

"People [will] only work four hours a day and maybe four days a week. My grandfather worked 16 hours a day in the farmland and [thought he was] very busy. We work eight hours, five days a week and think we are very busy," Ma told CNBC in Detroit at the Gateway 17 conference for entrepreneurs.

Yep, and you do the same thing today Gramps did back then, right, Jack-O?

He admires the speed of a train by comparing it to a tree.

Ma said the rich and the poor, bosses and their employees would be increasingly affected by automation. "The first technology revolution caused World War I," said Ma. "The second technology revolution caused World War II. This is the third technology revolution."

If that logic were valid, we should have had a nuke war decades ago although Washington has been doing its level best to start one in recent years.

Ma also predicted that people will be able to travel to a greater number of destinations than now.

"Normal people visit, like, 30 places. Thirty years later, they will probably visit 300 places," he said.

Here's one tiny question, Jack-O ... just how the fuck will people pay for these exotic itineraries when they're working four hours a week.  Also, when the majority of people will not have jobs, how do you avoid the rioting on the way to the airport to start traveling.

Jack Ma is just another another of the rich folk who live so far out on a cloud world they have no real engagement with anything and their lives revolve around money and selling toasters online.  The utter lack of substance in his prediction is symptomatic of that elite in which there's no redeeming feature readily observable.

Therefore, with a great fanfare and a glorious flourish, we award the title today to Jack Ma, Bombastico Fantastico.
