Not specifically where you work, but the kind of work you do.

For example, I am currently in IT. I deal with the infrastructure aspect of networks. But I am going to school for video game art and design.

Now you try.

Holy crap.

I'm way out classed here.
I've always liked VWs, but when my girlfriend bought her New Beetle a few months back, I liked everything about it. Except that they're ugly as hell. And there's that whole giant dashboard thing. But beyond that, I thought it was great. So when the New GTIs came out last month I decided to get one. I'd like to do something to it, but as an enlisted man, I can afford little more than the payment and insurance.

Hopefully my schooling will pay off...

Going with the enlisted man theme here, what rank in the Air Force pays enough to be able to put $50,000 of Dinan parts into an M3? :eek: I couldn't believe someone was dumping that kind of cash into a 4 year old Bimmer and my jaw really hit the ole service drive when I saw the Air Force plates on the car. :p
No clue, man. Could have been an officer, though.

I was stuck on gate duty the other day checking ID for folks comig on base in the morning and on several occasions I wa shocked to see Airmen (E1 - E4) driving Lexuses (Lexii?), BMWs, Mercades, etc... These kids must spend like 80% of their paychecks on car and insurance payments...

In my short banking career I've seen everything from janitors with $100K in savings to politicians up to their eyes in debt. One thing I can tell you for sure though is that people in the military tend to spend their [relatively high] wages like there's no tomorrow. Maybe they know something we don't.
Relatively high? That's pretty funny...

Whoa, interesting group we've got here.

Me, I'm a 56 year old going on 20 father of 3 that got layed of from Hewlett-Packard after 28 years who had to train the engineer from Singapore that took his place.
Ain't that a bitch? I lost my internship at HP when I was 19. I didn't have to train my replacement, though, as my shop was outsourced.

I've still never forgiven Carly...

Research - neuroscience, sleep disorders, etc...
Awesome. I'm pretty sure I have sleep apnea. I'm on a waiting list for one of those overnight observation things, so I'm not sure if I have it. But I do know that I wake up gasping every so often.

Dr. Jones isn't fully aroused...?
Heh, she apparently doesn't know me that well...

Anyway, I tend to move around a lot in my sleep so I can't really choose how I sleep. But yeah, I'll be getting that looked at hopefully by the end of the month. Thanks.
