For the Carbon Geeks

would it really cost 70 grand to make some carbon bathtub?

doubt it.

Probably not, but I'm sure you can sell them to rich geeks for that much.

Machinists - Looking for Reading Material

The machinery's handbook is awesome. Not really a guide for learning how to machine, but it has every bit of information you could possibly imagine.

Walmart

Boycotting Walmart is the easiest thing in the world. I hate going into them, I feel dirty. It's like boycotting a public toilet with an unflushed dookie. Just plug your nose, leave, and move on.

Agreed. There were a couple occasions when I was a starving student that I bought groceries from Wal-Mart. Today, I won't even go in the place, it just feels wrong. Unfortunately, for people who don't make a living wage, it's a vicious cycle where they end up supporting the like of Walmart just to save a buck or two.

Recent grad? Employed?

I graduated from UBC Mech Eng in 2010. After travelling for a while, I started to look for work in early 2011. I sent out cover letters and resumes to all sorts of places and didn't get a single reply. In the end, I interviewed with 3 companies (and got the job where I currently work), and they were all because I knew someone within the company who refered me. None of the jobs I interviewed for were posted anywhere. My advice: work your connections, and failing that, get out to job fairs and industry events. Face to face introductions will go a lot further than an emailed resume.

Another Where to eat in "ALL" of Vancouver

La Regalade in West Van. The food is awesome and the portion sizes are big enough that you'll need to spend another month in boot camp.

Ping Pong with Bruce Lee

It's an ad for Nokia. Still pretty cool though.

Seriously? Could the Canucks give away any more goals?

Fox News Drops Glenn Beck

Here's my prediction: he ends up in a smaller, obscure broadcaster where he isn't required to be "fair and balanced" and is given a platform to continue spewing his brand of journalism to the lowest common denominators of society.
