Looking good, ain't he?
I really hate my automotive instructor right now.

I've been in this class since September and it's had it's good and bad sides to it. The good being I sincerely did learn things, and I made friends easier than I thought I would. But it seems they are the only fun part about it.

But it's mostly been a struggle, he says we'll go out in the shop and do things but then we just end up sitting in the class for the ENTIRE period. Listening to him talk about unrelated bullshit that he justifies by somehow making it "relate to the automotive industry." He talked about the Lion King today, I don't know how he manages to do it. He claims he has autism and ADHD.

He also sometimes doesn't come into the classroom until an hour after class started, he's in the building, just not in the classroom.

Some of my classmates are considering dropping the class, but I'm having a hard time with that. On one hand, hes a ASE certified Master Technician, and he has proven multiple times he can get students out working in industry. But on the other it's just plain infuriating dealing with him.

Automotive is what I want as a career, I plan on Being an ASE Certified Master Technician. I think there seems to be no other choice than to just suck it up and stay.

I think even if it's your passion it would still be very hard. There's three levels ASE has, Entry level certification, Professional certification, and Master certification. It takes years, but one of the graduates of my class is only 19 and has almost all his professional certs. He also just bought his own house. This is what's keeping me in this class right now, seeing his success.

Well I'm 21 and at the point where I don't really know what to do. I was training to be a pilot but can't really afford to finish pursuing that yet. SoI figured maybe working with cars is something I could try.

Levels of dangerous perfluoroalkyl substances in US drinking water has been found to be higher than previously thought. With levels continuing to increase.

A report was filed 2 years ago on the fact that the "safe" level of these chemicals needs to be many times lower than is actually allowed. Without straying too far into politics…lets just say someone up top was none too thrilled on that report and little has been done to address this.

It is linked to numerous health problems, mostly in children.

Big business continues to poison our kids.

@Zincy
The biggest indicator that the flourine compounds aren't for are good is the fact it accumulates without regulation.

Why does someone in Kentucky need six times the flourine as a Floridian? Why does the FDA upper limit for acceptable flourine levels keep going up?

Florida is closer to the clean water, and trying to remove this shit from the northbound water is engineering disaster.

West VA is getting hit hard by the stuff, along with shit from the coal mines.
And Texas routinely has the worst water quality in the US, for much of the same reasons. Rural run off and mining.


Killing us all for a buck, that's the corporate way.

West Virginia would be statistically the worst state if it wasn't for the US capitol of racism, the world capitol of methamphetamine, and luisiana. Nobody needs to go to luisiana.

Go for the coppers, or the fire department, or the paramedics.

I'm trying for the Transit coppers and state coppers in may. Perhaps the fire department too. I can't Imagine anything more satisfying.

I've considered trying a job as a police officer, probably LAPD or LA County Sheriff. I actually had and I suppose technically still have a personal invitation to try joining the FBI. Who knows, maybe someday I'll actually go for that.

@MagpulPony
If you were actually invited to join the FBI than I don't see why you wouldn't give it a shot. It's a prestigious and well paying position and while I believe The FBI as an organisation is corrupt and long exceeded it's mandate, You as an individual would be able to some real good.

Don't wait. career wise, Doing nothing is worse then doing the wrong thing. Go for it before you lose the opportunity.

I'm a Mutt and I love it
When it comes to writing stories, i end up struggling with expressing character's movements. I know the personalities, I know how i want the story to go, and I know how to write natural dialogue. Its the movements I struggle with.

Does anyone else have to deal with children and their shit generation? I can't be the only one who has to call them out for their ignorance especially when I have to be associated with them.
