OCH AYE THE NOO

Post by Kiltman2 » Sat Jun 08, 2013 9:00 pm

Hello all. There have been many questions.

"Where has Kilty gone?"
"What is he doing?"
"Where did he come from, where did he go?"
"What's a Kilty?"
"Where can I buy one?"
"Are they infectious?"
"How did you get in here?"
"Please leave?"
"I'm going to call the police?"
"What are you doing with my goldfish?"
and
"Why? WHY?"

These are the questions exactly nobody have been asking! I swear... So I'm going to listen to some real questions. Ask me anything!

Oh, also I'm back. :) HOW ARE YOU GUYS YOU GOOD YEAH.

What is your favorite color?

Green. The colour of fresh cut grass, or grass you can get freshly cut on (ah thank you)

Currently 2. One is expensive, the other is less so. In Scotland we can get kilts on the cheap on an illicit black market dedicated purely to symbols of gaudy nationalism. I also recently bought a ton of shortbread for £2. The difference is surprisingly noticeable. They are both grey tartan, cos grey is endlessly classy yo.

This is unfortunately a wee bit boring. There are two (maybe three depending on your opinion...): get a decent job in Engineering (which is my major) within a year or so, then use the proceeds of a couple years to fund a secondary degree in English Lit, Poetry or Acting. Because, y'know, these are all transferable skills and all and will al lead to wonderfully well paid professions. These days I'm trying to cut my teeth as a performance poet, outside my degree and all.

This is a wee bit short sighted. In terms of long term goals, within 10 years end up in a job I like, think about marriage, kids etc. All these things are scary, but hey. Ten years ago the most taxing thing I had to think about was whether to carry the 2. It's all relative.

So yeah. I hope this rambly and ill-defined response answers your question :P

It does! Do you have any recordings as a performance poet? That'd be very fun to watch.

As a fellow engineer: what is your specialty, and what would be your dream job? I'm mechanical, would like to work in renewable energies :).

INDEED I DO! It also happily covers Engineering and Poetry and shizz.

I'm also a Mechanical engineer! REPRESENT. I went into Uni being able to decide which discipline I wanted to specialise in after the first year. Chemical went out the window early on when I realised how ridiculous it was, then Electronics, then Civil, and left me through elimination with Mechanical. It's the broadest Engineering degree I can get, and the variety is nice.

But as it so turns out, Engineering is a fudge hard degree. Who knew? So my grades aren't the best at the moment. But I have another year of undergrad, then possibly big bad world. I'm currently a bit terrified - precisely because I'm unsure what sort of field I want to work in. Oil, Gas, Mining etc is where the big money is - and if I just want to make as much money as I can in a couple years I'd be best going to live in a shack in Canada or Australia and reaping the sweet pillage of the Earth.

If I'm looking at something I could live with myself for doing, it would similarly be in Renewables or Development. I like the work that Engineers without Borders do particularly. Development tends to be more infrastructure however, which is more suited to Civils. Ah well. I'm still at an early stage at the moment, with graduation looming fast I have to make tracks.

What level of education are you at now, Linky?

I got my masters in January. I have been working for a bit over two years now.

I work in mining, which is, as you say where the money is; however, I dodged actually working for the mining company themselves (and living in the middle of desert, as it were). So I currently work in consulting instead, where we do projects for the copper and gold mining industry.

While at first I felt like selling out, I came to terms with it quickly. If you're environmentally minded, the amount of good you can do in big industry is amazing, because the amount of inefficiency in the process is huge. If you're inside the mining or oil/gas company, and you're able to identify these deficiencies, then you can actually do something about it. In the long run, you will do much, much more good than outside of it.

So yeah: while I used to think mining corporations were evil, my sights have changed. I now lash out at engineers that don't care about energy efficient designs and operators who do not follow the designed control philosophy. They're the real evil!

EDIT: I love your poem! "Baby you would make a great heat engine." Haha, it's really good!

You have very good diction; if I were reciting that, I think I would have messed up arbitrarily, or equilibrium. Kudos my man!
