    pretty cool. I haven't kept in touch with my high school but when I was there they had a rather simple industrial arts program. In retrospect it wasn't nearly as ambitious as I would have thought being that the school was in the epicenter of the chemical engineering, refinery and industry world but hey, what do you expect from a bunch of redneck baptists? They did have an auto shop as well as wood shop and they had some kind of metal shop.

    They really should have had more classes in pipe-fitting, plumbing, welding, warehouse management etc etc. Schools don't do enough to prepare people for those kinds of jobs and those are good, well-paying jobs with strong benefits and those jobs, at least around here, are always in demand.
    Stay out of it, dude.


    I am Van Halen.
