Issue : People : Baseboards

The guy that planted that fruit company died a while ago, and wasn't in the ground long before most people had stuff to say about how he lived. He was all types of dicks and whatnot in every bodies memory, to the point where some even went as far as to say, "Well good riddance." Yeah, he was probably an asshole, being an artist tends to do that to people.

But it usually turns out to be a chicken or egg situation. See the thing about stuff levied against the guy that planted the fruit company is that the bulk of references people have to cite his dickitude are located around the end of his life, which is hard for me to swallow, as in my experience interacting with them most elderly people act like complete jerks at first glance, but further examination of what they say reveals the words of people that know they don't have much time left, and have 0.00 % interest in fucking around.

Take for instance how the dead fruit guy came up as a young turk. Dude was really into the artistic side of computers and only cared about the computer side in terms of making it easier for noobs to use. But it was all good because there was another guy across the way that was doing the exact same thing but backwards. The fruit guy started out by slapping together an out of the box rig and said, "There you go, this can do with that, go play." Nerds was falling all over themselves, but oddly enough regular citizens were falling all over themselves as well, shit was candy.

Next he said, well, the fundamentals are down, lets make the inside perty as well, so he wen't splashed some color on that shiz, put some more tech in the grill, and sat back. Crickets, the tech he put in was too expensive for the regulars, and he compounded this by linking up with the guy across the street because they were both new to the show and it made sense to him.

The regulars felt betrayed and let him know, and the non computer peeps in his company smelled blood in the water, because for a long time they always saw him like the consumers were beginning to. They wanted to use computers to sell other stuff and the fruit company guy only gave a shit about computers, to the point where he didn't mind losing a buck or two. They saw the opening and they took it, the guy that started the fruit company was out on his ass, such a dirty game.

But he didn't trip, because the cocky asshole knew that without him the company was gonna fall right on his ass, as everybody still in the building had been ordered to provide the people what they might want, and the guy that planted  the company was creating what he wanted, and letting the transitive property take effect.

Anyway, long story mid the planter dude tossed a couple bucks to some computer artist buddies of his that did weird things with cartoons. That toy stuff blew up and made him rich(er), then he turned around, bought his company back, and went on a tech killstreak that lasted till he died. Shit was lolz.
