    I'm with speedy66, I'm just a lowly milkman. :D And for ten years before that I was welding and machinist trash (inside joke). I always hated school. I vowed never to return after high school. Thats why I do manual labor everyday. Hey, all you young'ins GO TO SCHOOL !

    I'm a mechanical engineer, I currently work in an industrial fabrication shop. Basically, I get to build/design/test stuff and play with heavy equipment all day.
