    Having a car that came with a 1.3L rotary engine but now has a NASCAR cup engine in it, I can't exactly buy off the shelf exhaust headers. For this motor, I need 1 7/8" diameter primaries for the header tubing, which as luck would have it, is pretty darn close to 1.5" sch. 40 PVC pipe... I did a full mockup of the driver's side in PVC using standard 45 or 90 bends wherever possible, and now have the lengthy process of transferring to steel. It takes some calibrated eyeballs to get some of the lengths and turns right when you transfer the shape, but as you can see, you can get pretty darn close (not sure why EB flips the orientation on the photos). The first picture is a little jig that I made. It's the same centerline radius of the tube bends, and when you lay the bend over the paper template, it lets you scribe a line on the top of the tube that's straight and perpendicular to it anywhere along the bend. If you get this wrong, once cut on the bandsaw, you end up with an oval end that doesn't butt up properly for welding and skews the angle of the adjacent tube. This is a long, painstaking pain in the ass, but it's about $150 in materials for DIY vs. $1500 for custom.

    During lunch I was sitting with a colleague on the back of his truck eating lunch and a bee kept hovering around us. I said "Wouldn't that be inconvenient to get stung by a bee right before going into the PM session". Well ironically enough the bee followed me into the test and kept flying around me. I'm not afraid of bees but it was obnoxious and I couldn't leave my chair. The only thing I could do was shoo it away whisper "F*** off bee!". The proctor gave me the look you would expect thinking I could be secretly plotting to steal exam questions by somehow taming a bee. Luckily it went away and I only wasted 1 minute. Crisis averted!

    Cause people taking it are usually not too smart. Those passes are from other disciplines taking it.

    So more data points for the model?

    Lies. Civil engineer's don't even need to count past 9 to do their job. Do they even know how to multiply?

    ^ once again, just reporting the trends that other users reported. Nothing less, nothing more.

    And yes, you're right. There was a guy, a few exam cycles ago, that passed the power pe without any education background. He studied a bit and passed the exam. I think his background was in civil. It's well known that the power pe is the easiest.

    I can tell judging from your posts you are that annoying co-worker we all groan when we have to work together for a project.

    I bought a ton of honey comb yesterday. So excited! Delicious to eat on a hot english muffin! I've discovered this is not something really done in the US and I accidentally have been doing weird things that my Polish grandmother always does.

    HA. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, Yeah, I'm def not at that stage. I am fairly pessimistic that I passed (I get ultra nervous with tests), but I just feel weird that...I'm just not caring about the results really? Life will go on if I passed or not, so my brain is just like "get a massage. bake brownies. go to that honey festival. eat the fondue."

    Hmm, I can't find the post by @Invisible that @SacMe24 is quoting... Welcome to Sub Phase B: I can promise you the results won't come before Nov 30. FWIW, they've never initial released on a Wednesday; but that could just be a coincidence. Welcome to Sub Phase A: the cut varies for every exam and administration so you can't really look at past results for anything but a normal range. Also, that 51 was the ONLY number someone reported from EE-Power last time. Not nearly enough data from that to confidently guess the last EE-Power cut score. We usually get a bunch of people reporting and can figure out the cut score based on a sharp cliff; that didn't happen last time for EE-power.

    I had heard there was 3-4 feet of new snow at some of the Mountain Passes this weekend so I went and did some hike in skiing (snowboarding)this weekend - only did two runs but it was pretty awesome - And no Lift Lines! The pic on the left is the "staring" point on the garmin pic on the right - it would be nice if google maps would also have winter aerial photos You can see some sweet turns on the garmin tracker
