Space is a very large place. If NASA missed spotting an asteroid the size of a large bus until it had passed ... there could easily be dead dinosaurs out there floating around.

Bah, nothing to worry about. I remember this stuff coming up when I was a kid in the 80s. "kids cant do math", "they cant find the US on a map", "They don't know what the constitution is", etc. Well that was 35 years ago now and all those dumb little kids are all grown up and in charge and we're doing just....Yeah, OK we're F'd!

@DETRoadster
I'm afraid of all the 5th place trophy winners becoming adults

Edit: we told our twin girls (teen years) we LIED, they're not real princesses 👸 👑 🏰

We simply told em it's up to themselves to be successful and content, we will help here n there but it's ultimately up to them

I see them all the time as new employees at my company. Takes a couple years to program out all the "You did only what was asked so you deserve a gold medal, a promotion, a raise, and a voice in the company" crap their parents programmed into them. Some quit first, but a select few make a good turn around and become self-sufficient adults. It take a massive amount of hand holding and effort though. I've begun crafting interview questions to try to weed out the really "special" ones but it's hard to do. When asked about desired career trajectory I had one young engineer tell me in all honesty his goal was to have my job (VP of Engineering) in "3 to 5 years." I had another one tell me she thought a year over year comp growth of 20% to 25% was in-line with her expectations. Ha! If you start poking around in there you can uncover the ones who have been programmed to believe that they are truly special, even though they came in 5th place in participation.

I give you credit, working in Seattle! You must see some real gems. They’re here also but it seems out there is like the major leagues vs. the minors here...

He gave you those "3 to 5 years" to proceed along your own "career trajectory".
