    No, my internship ends on Friday and apparently no one wants to hire me. :(

    :v: Job searching sucks.

    Seriously, it really does.

    Even worse when you're trying to land jobs on the other site of the continent :\

    The whole, like "all the jobs in my field are in California" thing gets old after the fifth time you've gone "I have to leave my friends, my family, my karate school, pretty much everything except my profession, just to get a job." Shit, I can't believe I was considering Canada at one point.

    Pretty much all my friends have quit at life and I am trying hard not to do the same thing

    I should slap you for that kind of pussy-talk. Spend time with your winner friends, not your loser friends.

    Wait, fuck this, there's already some kind of ninja on YouTube saying this exact message.

    Yeah, I barely see a couple of my old friends basically because they spent a couple years doing nothing at all, both jobwise and personal-growthwise. One managed to get his shit straightened out and is doing good for a guy who's a daddy at 22. The other went back to living with his parents.

    When I was little I wanted to be either a vet or an animal trainer at Sea World. Then I wanted to be in the CIA. Now I am going to work intelligence in the Air Force. My long-term goal is to get a job working for the state department in an Embassy somewhere in Southeast Asia.

    Steam shovel. That is, if you are referencing what I think you are.

    I remember when I was around 14 I spent most of the year occasionally pondering how a perpetual motion machine could conceivably cheat the laws of thermodynamics and it was pretty cool reaching that point where I really understood why it's not possible.

    That's awesome. When I was younger, I'd often attempt to delve into arcane subjects like that, and I always failed due to total lack of attention span.

    That particular thing bugged me for a few weeks though. I still don't fully understand why perpetual motion isn't possible.

    no such thing as "totally frictionless"

    friction means drag

    drag means heat

    heat means negative energy

    negative energy has to be countered from something, somewhere


    no matter on how miniscule a level, all things must equal zero

    you fuckin NEEEEEEERRRRRRD

    If you think questioning the laws of physics and thermodynamics is nerdy, then you're going to be serving fries to a lot of nerds.

    As for me, my uncle worked for a wrestling promotion up in Minnesota and knew a bunch of wrestlers and used to show me a shitload of tapes, so up until the age of 12 or so, I wanted to work in the wrestling business somehow (not as a wrestler, though). It probably would have been a lot more interesting than engineering, but there's really no opportunity for independent promotions anymore, so I probably would have ended up on a dead-end career.

    You're not too bright are you? We weren't just talking about questioning them, but reaching that point of really understanding why they're laws instead of just parroting information that wasn't really understood as so many unfortunately do. And this isn't meant as an insult toward others that aren't that interested in science but just pointing out the difference to you after you tried to "put us in our place" you pompous windbag.
