If it's any comfort, there are tons of people who "can't work or exist in the eyes of the government". Take for instance felons, those who owe the IRS a bunch of money, those who owe child support, etc.

You need to find a way to work and exist off-the-grid, there are millions of us, come on in, the water's fine!

TIL there's a Constitution Day and it's on my b'day.

This is extremely cool.

On 9-11-01, as we all know, something happened that makes a mere birthday, a week later even, disappear off of everyone's map. My older sister and I literally said to each other, over email, "Hey, wasn't there a birthday a couple of months ago?" "Oh yeah, I guess there was..." It's not much, but 9-11 kind of wiped my birthday off of our map; the year 2000 was the last year I got a present, etc.

Well now I feel like I have it back. It's Constitution Day!

You probably ran into my uncle who worked for for years'n'years too.

My condolences. My uncle is proof that NASA is able to build a great organization from some pretty poor building blocks.
