Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

In the movie Will Hunting Ben Affleck (the working class guy) tells Matt Damon (his mathematicla genius buddy) that if he still is doing construction work when he is [25 or some other age], he will perosnally kill him, because he owes it to him not to waste his talent like that.

Is that just Hollywood propaganda?

Matt Damon's character also burns out and destroys his relationship with his girlfriend by the end of the movie. Remove the Hollywood happy ending and it's a pretty depressing movie.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?

Oh, and the happy ending involves Will refusing lucrative work offers.
