Future Jobs: Youtuber v Astronaut

Poll says American Kids want to be Youtubers more than Astronauts...
This is not that surprising to me. As a kid, I was inundated by space stuff in TV shows, comics, books, movies, and everything else. The Space shuttle first launched in 1982 and going to space became a tangible routine. The possibility of going to work every day in space was a concept that was not out of this world anymore.
Today we live in a world of unfulfilled promises as corporations take everything and turn it into advertising. We have become a society of advertisements that really sell nothing but your data to other companies to use to advertise to you more.
Youtube is just an extension of the way society has moved. Being a Youtuber is a tangible job now, whereas to be an astronaut you need a ton of training still and college is pretty much out of reach for most people who want to go to the stars.
