    I saw this story and its so ridiculous its sounds like something published from the Onion. Basically Verizon hired this guy and paid him a lot of money, he hired a developer in China and paid him 50K so he could watch cat videos and sell stuff on Ebay.

    This was his daily schedule.

    Dude knows what's up. To bad he got caught, he had a sweet gig going.

    Obviously there is some issue with it, but I don't really have that big of a problem with the concept. They were paying him $250k a year for results - he got them satisfactory results.

    If anything he's 10x smarter than the company itself. His mistake was getting caught.

    I really thought this was funny because it sounds like the average Sherdogger.:)

    That guy was probably a Sherdogger.

    Only potential problem I see for him is that he gave unauthorized access to the company's VPN which might be legally actionable.

    Does sound like an Onion story.
    Funny. I'm sure Verizon is fine using the exact same practices.

    In my last job I earned quite a lot and had pretty much the same schedule, except I didn't have to outsource anything because I didn't have anything to do.
    And I certainly wasn't the only one, there were guys making way more, doing shit all day.

    My only real problem with this is that a man was sitting in a cubicle somewhere watching cat videos.
