This is about what I work, between here and what I try to do on the side. I'm usually in for about 50~55 hours per week at the paycheck job (but we don't get OT which stinks). Figure typically I'll do about 2 hours in the evening when I have work on the moonlight thing. Primarily though we're a one paycheck house since Kirsten's job (she's a drafter for an architecture firm and a full time student until May 2010) hasn't had work for her in almost a year. We don't have kids. And no, there is no reason for it other than that is what it takes to get the job done. It is no way to live (well not really living since you don't have a life) and I encourage high school kids to very much consider other fields besides engineering.

Well, I dunno... just acknowledging that "illegalizing it" in many ways makes the problem much worse, not better.

As with drugs, so with gun control...

That is my stance, it's your body to abuse or destroy. None of my business. The war on drugs is consuming way too much.

I agree Dave. I might take that tangent even further to our embarrassing implementation of medical marijuana here in Colorado. The biggest demographic getting their tickets are males aged 18-25... and something like 600 new tickets are issued each day. I had no idea we had such an epidemic in our city, but apparently all these young males have this incurable pain.. yeah right.


OTOH what if you legalize it, tax the hell out of it, then sell it in gas stations. Use the excess hemp for paper, clothing & fuel. Talk about a positive economic impact..

OMG, Dave and I have finally found a point we agree on!

Believe it or not I also believe legalizing pot makes a lot of sense. Whoever wants it today can get it anyways so why not make the quality consistent, collect taxes on it and stop wasting resources trying to enfoce the impossible. I've never seen any evidence that proves it harms your brain or body any worse than alcohol. I would not be in favor of legalizing any of the schedule 2 drugs that do hurt you and can kill you if you OD.

Caught me in a moment of weakness, doing whiskey shots at lunch and all. Promise to be my normal disagreeable self tomorrow. Maybe more so with the hangover.

Ah... that helps us understand the context for that 55-hour-a-week thing...

I think and engineering degree with an MBA is a fantastic way to have a very interesting and financially rewarding life.
