re: Just found out I will be laid off... - DuckManiak
Look into other sectors of energy i.e. nuclear. I know Waterford 3 is looking to staff some odd ~1500 people in the near future. I don't work for them, but many knowledgeable sources have told me. I've been keeping an eye on the gulf south job postings from Entergy (Waterford 3, Riverbend, Grand Gul...

re: Traffic Camera Ticket in Laffy - DuckManiak
When I lived in Lafayette, my roommates and I used to put them on the fridge. Never paid one. Never has gone on my credit, but, they'd send me "final warnings" every couple of weeks. After a few months, the "final warning" letters stopped coming....

re: What's the scariest thing you've witnessed? - DuckManiak
Explosion at Motiva a few weeks back. Was 200 yards from it, and had to run towards fire to get out of gate. Heat was radiating, and didn't know if it would set off a chain reaction to different units. Have worked in oil and gas for 7 years, and although I've seen plenty of fires, it's the first tim...

re: C-Span Live: Clinton Server Hearing; 2 plead 5th; 1 skips out; 1 talking - DuckManiak
Is Huma next to get subpoenaed? Rep. Steve Russell (OK) has stated that in the FBI report, Huma is on record saying she didn't know about the server until [b]after[/b] HC left the state department. Cooper contradicted that. Suicide squad, I'm sure, was on call as soon as that came out. Skip to 2 hr ...

[quote]Achilles tendon smashed.[/quote] During a soccer game in high school, a kid from Northshore high ruptured his Achilles. Heard the pop from across the field, and his leg turned black and blue. That's a bad image that was mostly forgotten until you brought this up. :speechless: ...

[quote]Snakes following me to every home I've lived in.[/quote] Snakes are my biggest fear, period. I got chased by a water moccasin when I was young, and even the sight of one is enough to send shivers down my spine.

What's your biggest irrational fear? - DuckManiak
I get this fear anytime I'm sick, or, have a nagging injury for anytime more than a couple of days. It's that I'll never get better and have to live with this feeling for the rest of my days. Totally irrational, but, a few days of this is miserable. I haven't thought about it in a while, but, I ...

[quote]Yea, a lightning strike in the plant followed by fire is going to sound like an explosion to everyone.[/quote] I didn't even hear the thunder. The only thing that gave it away was people running. I thought it was because of the rain, but then saw the unit going up. I thought it was a tornado...

re: Fire reported at Motiva plant in Convent, LA - DuckManiak
It came up really quick. I was in my truck watching it rise. Rain wasn't too hard, but steady for about an hour and a half before the fire. I've seen it rain much harder and longer and not rise that quickly. Not sure what the deal was. ...

re: Fire reported at Motiva plant in Convent, LA - DuckManiak
No explosion when I was there, just fire. Most likely lightning. It was popping of for a while. We were under lightning alert, so no work was being performed. It was shin deep water in the contractor trailer lot. Should have seen everyone sprinting through it to get out the gate, myself included....
