Yea, its not about the hawsepipe or not, its about mentally lazy people who never bothered to take the steps I bothered to take, knowing that for engineering anyway that I would be behind the academy grads if I didnt do something about it. That is not about any demographic or culture. Just about people that never do more because they dont have to and get away with it. Normally I dont care what other people do with their own lives, but when they try to get involved with mine, I have a problem that. People that get away with being imbeciles because they are a man or are friends with someone or because they are from a certain neighborhood..
I dont know what the French have to do with this, but I have no problem with them either. I actually have family over there and am quite upset over recent events. I remember people were mad at them, I think it was after 9/11 but fail to realize they have already had a lot of bloodshed on their own soil...which apparently continues...
Are you talking about me or c.captain? Or about engineers in general? Have you been around many engineers? Lol. I would say the VAST majority of engineers like to display their knowledge and talk about what they know lol, academy, hawsepipe...it doesnt matter. That is an engineer thing...workboat engineers tend to do it more. I actually find it quite annoying sometimes when they start talking about stuff that everybody knows...like stuff that is required to know just to pass the qmed or engineering test.
A lot of things I write on here, I would never say...but wanted to say. So maybe I come off as a smartass or something. I just felt I suffered in silence for a long time. I would never actually tell someone or imply that I thought they were incompetent. First of all it is rude, secondly that kind of behavior damages morale.
Now, if I am supposed to start giggling and ooing. That is different, I am not gonna do that.
I will PM you I am ever in pensacola
