re: If I were to join military, which branch do you recommend - The Goon
The navy has a nuclear engineering program that is money. They will train you, put you to work getting valuable experience, and then pay you to stay on. If you're single and looking for experience and direction, this would be my choice. I have a distant relative that did this with an environm...

re: Easy 3000 or 4000 elective at LSU - The Goon
It's been awhile, but management 3200 was easy and incredibly useful when you get a job. I took it with Sauley years ago. Personal finance was also extremely easy. I forget the course name but it's in the human services or human sciences department. ...

re: Amazon has it's own cargo plane. Not a drone. - The Goon
I know Amazon has world class logistics and is even pioneering self updating algorithms, but what is the risk envolved with having a fleet of planes? Planes are crazy expensive, have red tape out the mother fricking arse for maintenance, and require special mechanics with constant trainings and educa...

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - The Goon
[quote]So you won't be moving to Denver.[/quote] Excess supply is expected to be gone by q3 of this year with price increases in q4. I'm thinking a stable market for 2017 with hiring and some capital expansion then. I'll have over five years experience and hopefully a PE on my resume. I'll mak...

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - The Goon
Most of our former employees had cdls to move rigs from lease to lease. Anyone layed off with a cdl is going to apply for a trucking job right now. I'd expect a tight labor market for the transportation industry in the region. There's plenty of oil and gas workers looking for work....

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - The Goon
If you stayed in your home after the financial collapse, prices are around where they were. Most of the people I've heard of who went bankrupt were the people who took out an arm for a spec house and couldn't afford the payments after the teaser rates. These were doctors and lawyers investing in t...

re: Are wages in CA really that much higher than LA? - The Goon

I bought the house new for 219 which is now listing for 268k. At a minimum, the only thing comparable was a new construction condo for ...

re: 45% of new grads who actually find jobs, are taking "no degree needed" jobs - The Goon
This was the second recruiting agency for the same position. I applied 3 months prior and did not get a call back and a general email saying I wasn't considered for the position. Now with a different agent, I am considered one of the top candidates. In the engineering world there's a gap betw...

re: 45% of new grads who actually find jobs, are taking "no degree needed" jobs - The Goon
[quote]It is YOU, the applicant, that needs to show the employer you bring something to the table. The employer isn't opening the job to "give people opportunities". The employer is opening the job because they need the fricking job done and they'd like it done as well as it can possibly be done for...

re: Worth it to hard wire house? - The Goon
I bought a new construction house a few years ago. I was pissed when I found out that ethernet had not been wired to any of the rooms. More TV's are now streaming devices and wifi is not keeping up with bandwidth. All of the houses were wired with a special console for your router and wifi at...

re: Engineering Calculation Question - The Goon
Off the top of my head, define burst pressure as the yield stress of the hull. Stress is a function of tensile stress and shear stress with magnitude being square root of the sum of the squares (mohr circle). Write both shear stress and tensile stress as a function of pressure and then solve for p...
