Does this mean it's alright to talk about stealing cable (The W) here now? :)

I own a video rental store specializing in independent films, foreign films, documentaries, stuff like that, although we have some mainstream stuff too.

I'll be obsolete in ten years, max, when everyone just downloads everything and never leaves the house.

Wow, I am impressed by some of the jobs mentioned here. Not terribly surprised though, given some of the intelligent conversations that occur on the board.

Title: Project engineer
Reality: Electrical Engineer designing industrial control systems, specializing in tracking and routing systems for float glass production. Six years and running in my field, just made 4 years with my current employer.

Cavaliers: 25-36. 0.5 games out of the playoffs. The East is pathetic.

Like my bio says, I attempt to teach college students how to speak and write in a fashion that indicates some familiarity with the American language. Currently, I'm teaching Presentation Techniques and College Composition, but I'll be picking up an Ethics class and an Organizational Comm class in the fall. I also moonlight as a general laborer/jack of all trades at a Christmas Tree farm. Most importantly, I'm also the parent of two children.

It's been a while since the W made me feel young.

I'm currently in the process of dropping out of high school, looking to get my GED and head off to Fitchburg State College to major in Communications or some other field that'll eventually have me hosting Jeopardy and running the show behind the scenes on Wheel of Fortune. It's this dream I have. :)

Lets just say when you here the word "shortage" it's BS. Granted crude oil is up a little bit which does add to some of the cost, but not near enough to equal what you are paying now. The national average for gas come July will be over $2 a gallon (which I know it already is some places) you can bank on that.

If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.

And probably work about 60-70 hours a week making somewhere between 2-3 bills a week...I'm not mocking, this is "been there /done that/ own the t-shirt/still have the badge of honor in my storage boxes somewhere" sympathy.

I'm a biologist for a chemical company. I will be sitting for my boards in nursing come June and then move into a clinical setting. And finish my grad work in cell biology. Oh, and push out a kid in August so then I'll be a mommy, too.
