    School of PE is it worth it

    I took the SoPE course for the lateral portion in the Fall of 2016. I thought it was a good course and passed.

    Countdown to Star Wars

    I haven't seen the Solo movie, but I have been underwhelmed by the new movies so far. They paid Lucas $4B for Star Wars, maybe they can pay him another $0.5B to come back and make them better.

    S.E. studying time...used as PDH hours...?

    I know Texas will count up to 5 hours of self study. For other states, I took a study course and claimed every bit of it because they took roll so there was a record of me being there.

    Best country for engineers

    I haven't done a ton of research, but from what I saw the US is the best. I wanted to find a place in Western Europe to live and work, if I went there I'd be luck to make 60% of what I do now. They may have a better work/life balance and state funded health coverage, but I didn't think that would make up the drop in pay and the increase in living expenses.

    HOA Horror Stories

    Practically every neighborhood in the Houston area has an HOA. I've seen annual fees can be as high as $1500/year, but it includes several community activities/membership to facilities including pool. My neighborhood was built with a country club near by, so my dues are only $200/year but have to pay much more to be a part of the CC. I had to submit a form to the HOA when I upgraded my drainage system, the president came by gave it a cone over and approved. He said in 20 years, they have had only a few problems, like someone wanting to paint their house pink, raise live stock in the back yard. I never wanted to live in an area with an HOA, but so far I have had no issues with it.

    Flat Earthers

    Since they are flat earthers, I think by definition they do not.

    I'm sure there are some people, but I don't think many. I guessed on almost all AASHTO questions on morning portion for both tests and passed both. I had answers for everything in the afternoon, didn't have to "essay" anything, but I didn't feel confident in what I put for almost an entire problem for lateral afternoon. I'm sure there are tests more difficult than the lateral portion, but I don't know of any and going off pass rates of the lateral portion there can't be many,

    April 2018 Exams - ACI 318-14

    Unless the code requirements change it'd still be ASD. I haven't heard anything about the requirements changing, any one else?

    Does anyone else have their results?

    Both TX and AL.

    That may be true, but I hear Kim Jong Un is a huge UGA fan (he likes the fact that he resembles the dog), so I think that is reason enough to cheer for Bama.

    Why would anyone want to do that? Sounds like a horrible idea.
  14. Agree. Like others have said, it doesn't say drink is included, so not included.

    I agree completely, he's awesome. No bias at all.
