Getting hired in 2000 felt luck a POW who had been tunneling through a small hole in the bathroom for years had finally dug himself to the other side. Getting hired in the 20's feels like the war is over, the guards are gone and someone walked out the front gate.
Pretty good analogy....2000 was something else..... Even getting out of regional land in the early-teens took a bit of doing. Maybe like bribing the right guards and sneaking out in the middle of the night. Guys left here and there but you could keep track of who got out.
