    Only 2 votes? Must have both been townies. If one was mafia the other mafia would have voted to try an save them.

    Fuck that. The Saints would have slaughtered the Pats in the Super Bowl last year if we weren't cheated. (Yeah, still salty)

    It sounds like you have worked in some bad environments. Have you spoken up for yourself, asking questions and explaining that you want to learn? I've probably had 10 bosses throughout my 15 year career (3 companies, but 8 different roles mostly due to lots of cross-training early in my career, plus a couple of reorganizations) and only twice did I have a boss who wasn't willing to teach. And that wasn't because they didn't want to; they were just too busy. But they would at least point me to someone else who could teach me. One of a manager's primary jobs should be to develop the talent on his or her team. If that's not happening where you work, I'd look for something better. I'd also worry about the long-term viability of the organization. Regarding taking the PE exam. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (1) I know nothing about Geotech. (2) Everyone is different. I don't think I could have passed the ME exam without the years of on-the-job learning, but other people can study the book and teach themselves everything. Are you a good independent learner? a good test taker? Are you willing to spend $1000 - $2000 on taking a PE class? Will your company pay for it? All important questions that you need to figure out the answer to.

    Contact SEAOC (structural engineers assoc. of ca). They have a panel of engineers that can review your work and provide references. https://www.seaoc.org/page/becomingse

    Check your units. For VaA you're multiplying amps times your impedence, which gives you volts. VAN is in kV, so when you add the two in your previous question, you need to multiply VAN x 10^3 so it's in volts before you add it to VaN.

    This would be more akin to your grandfather working the clearance freezer at Walmart.

    Hey all! I took the exam on Monday. Here were my thoughts: I found that the exam was probably about the same level of difficulty as the PPI practice exams There were A LOT of qualitative questions...I counted 12 in the morning and 14 in the afternoon, so that's about 33% of the exam. I had plenty of time to complete all questions and review the ones I wasn't positive about. There were no quantitative questions where I felt like the appropriate equation was not included in the reference manual. ...that being said, be very familiar with the reference manual and where things were located. I found that the term search did not always find all of that term like my personal computer had, so you had to know what you were looking for and have a general idea of where it was located in the manual. I will update once I get my results!

    Zombies have not been an official part of the game to this point. We just like to joke about our ability to continue talking after being killed off.

    You sure seemed like you were enjoying yourself, in a diabolical mafia kitten kind of way!

    I definitely like the spiders/burn it down idea. Design it for whatever, get paid, and light a fire. No liability/no problem.

    If it means anything (which it doesn't), I'd still set my sights on @ChebyshevII PE.

    You mean, because people like putting themselves into impossible and potentially dangerous situations for the thrill of it?

    @tj_PE You can still post about the game, except that you can no longer convey your role in this game beyond what you had said when you were alive.
