My last day will be.....January 6th. That just kind of worked out that way. But what the hell. I’ll take it!
The FACT that FTT is still trading for more than a dollar tells us everything we need to know about this fake/manipulated system.
When you see video of a bunch of robot arms welding car chassis on an assembly line, I’m the guy that connects all that stuff together and makes it talk to each other. And fixes it when it breaks.
I also plan, install and maintain the 480V 3phase distribution system in our plant. Our back-up diesel generator is 1,700 HP 16 cylinders and generates 2000 amps at 480V. Roughly 960,000 watts. Just to give a sense of the system capacity.
If my 30 years of experience could be translated into a current degree that didn’t exist until recently....I’d be considered a Mechatronics Technician/Engineer (because I often design my own systems). It’s a good job. And I can pick up some side hustle with it. Turning me into a member of the 1099 superior race.
But for now.....I’m going to fix Sewing Machines for $20 an hour working for myself. And do a lot of Walleye Fishing.
It’s not full blown retirement. But do productive people ever REALLY retire?
As the fire approached him, the man had mere seconds to react. He could stand on the platform, and inevitably be consumed by the burning flames. Or, he could plunge 30 meters in to the freezing waters. The man was standing upon a "burning platform," and he needed to make a choice.
He decided to jump. It was unexpected. In ordinary circumstances, the man would never consider plunging into icy waters. But these were not ordinary times - his platform was on fire. The man survived the fall and the waters. After he was rescued, he noted that a "burning platform" caused a radical change in his behaviour.
We too, are standing on a "burning platform," and we must decide how we are going to change our behaviour.—-Stephen Elop
(Got a PADI diving cert then, too.)
Don't trust Honduran gov enough to buy there. The real estate "agents" are unregulated thieves, imo.
And the humidity there makes Houston seem arid. Nearly unbearable.
Much worse than living in Phoenix in 115F summer.
And the local people are only friendly skin deep.
The Flor de Cana rum is great though.

Going Galt the way i can while in survival mode
and my employer sucks
i've been lied to more times that i can now remember
