Person A: what did they guys behind the MYO at thalmic labs study?

Person B: They were the fortunate few that actually made it through Mechatronics at Waterloo without killing themselves

Person A: isn't that the same as they guys behind bufferbox and kik messenger?

Person B: Yeah, they are probably all laughing at their classmates at Google, Facebook and Apple who took offers over starting their own company.
