Is it sad that my after lunch dump and stealing 15 minutes to browse the web is the highlight of my work week day?

I spent 3 hours knee deep in my septic tank fixing a clog by hand.

Wanna trade jobs? Never mind, yours sounds awful. ******* whiner.

I think I'm going to sell my C5 and buy either a Supra or a 996 Turbo.

I was just looking at supras on ebay. Btw, I'm not calling you so then I can get random *** **** sent to my phone. I will however distribute your number appropriately though.

The gf and I spent the better part of the afternoon looking at houses for rent. We just found out last week that when the lease ends in June the landlords need someone that could serve more as a "servant" to them. I've offered to do numerous amounts of **** for these rich old *****, but every time they just smile and tell me they'll have carlos do it. So **** em, I cant wait to leave.

Unfortunately all 3 of the places we looked at today failed. I really liked one place, but it was attached to the landlords own house and she has a old hound that was barking the whole time we we're there. The last place we looked at was a complete shithole and had flood damage that the lady showing us the place didnt even know about until she opened the door.

This came at the WORST possible time for me. I was just starting to look around for a truck and trailer, plus I need to find myself a forklift ASAP as well. All the money I'm going to get from painting the building is gonna have to sit in the bank as a cushion for when we move. I really hope I can find another painting job or two so I can keep doing it on the side.

My dad's truck isn't going to sprout it's own manifold, carb and distributor. It's not my fault you don't want to make a quick sale.

No thanks, I had that job for 4 years. Though a lot of mine were new installs of field lines and tanks, but at least a few times a week we would have to take out the pump truck.

Id take that job back over mine any day. I hate being stuck in a lab all day/ night.

I was just giving you a hard time. I would rather be working in **** than inside a building doing mundane routine work. Probably why I'm taking a few years off school and joining the Marines.

What lab work do you do? My friend is trying to start a internship for his Bio. Tech. degree and just hearing about his options makes him cringe from boredom, lol, and I have to agree.

It's a relatively new and small medical lab company, Southern Diagnostics. We are in between two large hospitals, UAB and St Vinents. Do lab work for private practices from all over the state of Alabama and part of Mississippi. BORING!!! ******* boring *** work, and a bunch of nagging women who fight amongst themselves like a bunch of high school girls. I'm so sick of the drama at this place, I just put my head down and try to ignore it and do my work until it's time to go home. Can't wait to get out of this job. It was meant to be a temporary thing originally, maybe 6 months. Now I'm in 3 years.

When do you go to boot camp? I'll end up going February 2012, maybe a little earlier if another poolee moves/decides not to join.

At least you have steady work. But I understand the repetitive, boring part. When I was in Pensacola I got a job as a "auto insurance surveyor" a.k.a. telemarketer. I was the coolest guy in the 10th grade, had tons of cash ($10 dollar/hour job was huge up there) but, I was ******* MISERABLE. I quit after 3 months and got back in the restaurant scene.

Originally it was supposed to be January, but I'm looking to be gone by November. Depends on my weight, I'm a fatty But I want to sign as soon as I can. I may do it next week just to guarantee my spot. I'm hell bent now.

The Intel core i7 - 980X had a TDP of 130 watts at a nominal core voltage of 0.95v. That means the core current should peak at about 137 amps.

137 amps.

It doubles as a toaster. A feature, not a flaw.

You mean the IST (2 pull ups, 45 cruntches in 2 min, 1.5 miles in >13:30), MEPS (where you go talk to a big scary Gunnery Sargent who asks you if you've ever done drugs, been to the doctor and of your really sure you've never done drugs, get naked and touched by some old guy calming to be a doctor, etc) or do you mean just talk to a recruiter?

I did shitty on my 1st IST last weekend, 9 pullups (not bad), 35 crunches , and the 1.5m in 13:57. Now I'm building a pull up bar, doing crunches every day when I wake up, in the afternoon and a couple hours before I go to bed (did 54 in 2 min yesterday) and running at least 1 mile at least 5 times a week. After doing the IST at the pool function we got yelled at by a real Paris Island Drill Instructor, the we got real MRE's (get the ribs if you can, there good). While eating we got screamed at more, and after eating we ran a few hounded yards. Wile running after eating I had the misfortune of running past a female DI and not saying good afternoon maim as we where instructed, she pulled me aside with a few other numb-nuts who didn't see her, she PT'd me harder then I've ever PT'd. I was ******* exhausted afterworlds. Whatever you do, address the Drill Instructors and others as you have been told to at the state wide pool function. There are state wide pool functions once a year, normal pool functions once a month where you do your IST. I put that in bold cuz thats the only time you'll see a DI before boot camp and I don't want to discourage you cuz of the big scary DI's. (Thier no ******* joke though, they will ******* murder whoever comes to boot camp as a Gomer Pyle)

If you have any questions about joining, feel free to ask. Not that I know a lot, but I had a lot of questions.

BTW, If you want a spot in Infantry go talk to a recruiter ASAP, just call and ask when the first time you can come by. At my recruiter station their not guaranteeing me a spot as a Grunt even though thats what I want to do and i'm not going to boot camp for 6-9 months.
Theres also a program that lets you have something else as your main MOS but something else (ie Infantry) as your "secondary" MOS that you would still get trained for and everything, but you'd be deployed doing your primary MOS and you get called up (like reservists do) to do infantry. I think thats how it works at least.

A toaster? Hell, 137 amps is more than most cheap MIG welders. Assuming you don't have a swimming pool, the main breaker on your house is probably only 150a. And that's assuming you have an electric range, furnace, water heater, and clothes drier. Lots of NatGas-equipped houses still have 100a main service.

I was really surprised by that, honestly. Granted, I realize that the distance between the core regulator and the die is quite short, but I have a hard time even imaging 137A passing across those tiny little pins in the LGA 1366 socket.

The thermodynamics and electrical properties of modern CPUs just amaze me. Just the fact that it's possible to generate 130w of heat continuously in a little die measuring about 2.4 cm^2 without it turning into a pool of molten bits...

The best CPU ever created- the Motorola 68000- only consumed about 1.35 watts at 5v. So we're at about 100x the power dissipation (at 1/5 the voltage). Where will this trend stop? We must logically reach a point where the voltage cannot be made lower and heat cannot be drawn out of the die any faster.

Who wants to place money on when we'll start seeing Intel processors with screw terminals for power and a built-in water jacket as standard?
