  1. I tried it with glasses and without, but she's always spinning clockwise, even if i look at her from the corner of my eye.

    Has this something to do with being left- or right-handed? I'm left-handed so my right-brain functions should be dominant, maybe that's because i see her spinning clockwise.

    I don't think it has to do with being left- or right-handed.

    I'm right handed and, like you, no matter what I do I just get clockwise.

    Even though I'm right handed, I'm left eye dominant (which, by the way, is a pain in the ass when I'm shooting), so I also tried closing my left eye and then doing all that stuff again. And still all I got was clockwise.

  2. Ryan, Go to Newmont.com and check out the openings. If you apply give me heads up so I can alert my friend to your application.
    Thanks! I haven't yet, but I can tell you already that I will be applying to at least the "Denver Corporate Office - General Expression of Interest" link. I don't have much time left on my home internet this month. (I have a free Juno account limited to 10 hours. This wasn't a problem when I was a student. I just used the schools. Now. . . :( ) So anyway, next time I go to the library I'll apply for whatever interests me and I'll PM you and say what I've applied for.

    Mild winters for example is a term not used in Montana. If you like peace and quiet and absolutely no traffic (biggest thing I miss, damn you D.C. traffic) Montana is a great place.
    Sounds like my kind of place.

  3. Thanks everyone.

    I have to imagine that thinking outside of the box could find you a position that's not what you expected, but still relevant.
    I have/will be sending resumes to anything that my education is even remotely related to. I minored in biology so I'm also applying for biology jobs. Mostly I've been going to websites, searching by state and applying to anything geology or biology related or anything that doesn't list an experience requirement.

    Are you willing to move?
    God yes. I have no intention of staying in Texas any longer than I have to.

    I have a geologist friend in Ohio that is looking for help.... or is it the geologist friend in Colorado? Anyway, I know someone who is looking for someone to help them out.
    Colorado will work. I was hoping for Montana, Wyoming, one of the Dakotas or Vermont but Colorado will do.

    Steady on, Dannik, there's no need to get so desperate so quickly!! Suggesting civil engineering really is plumbing new depths of despair!!

    Geology? What you wanting to specialise in?
    Anything really. I'm not picky, just greedy.

    Is one of my co-majors. Though I doubt I am going to do this mumblemumblemumble sedimentology....
    Sedimentology is fairly easy. What I HATED was petrology. All those rock classification systems drive me nuts.

    Good money in it if you can swing it right though.
    I'm hoping.

    @ Stalker_Zero: Aren't you a ray of sunshine? :P But trust me, I know the feeling.

  4. I majored in geology. Unfortunately every job I've found has wanted a master's degree AND experience. I have neither, and will never have a master's, since I'm done with school.

    I switched from business to geology because of the accounting classes required for any business degree. God, I hated accounting. Double entry bookkeeping is evil.

    Good luck with the search.

  5. Lol... I actually use what I learnt during my degree perhaps... up to five days a year. But I'd never have gotten this job had I not had the degree in the first place. Go figure.
    Sounds about right. :rolleyes:

    @ calius: If I thought I had a chance in hell of getting away with it. . . But not with my luck. :D

  6. I hate looking for a job! I can't find anything that I couldn't have gotten just as easily without a degree (like waiter). I'm so sick of this. Everybody wants someone with experience. HOW THE ###### AM I SUPPOSED TO GET EXPERIENCE IF I CAN'T GET A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!! :wall::wall::wall::wall:

    I really want to retire already. Unfortunately I'm not a multimillionaire.

  7. Math. :x

    The lowest grades I've ever gotten in my life were trigonometry and in chemistry (and it was the math involved in the chemistry that killed me). I passed both on the first try, but they sure as hell didn't help my grade point average.

  8. I knew you were at university. It's still a school. Still studying astronomy?

    It's been a long time since I've played any computer game. And I really ought to be looking for a job right now, not talking to you. But job hunting sucks.

  9. I miss this thread. :'(
    So post in it you ######ing idiot!!!!!! You haven't posted here in 13 months! :rolleyes:

    Ah, I do miss giving you crap for no real reason. :P

    Seriously though, I miss this thread too.

    How's school been, Slink? I'll be graduating in a month and a half.

  10. They can do whatever the hell they want with it. It's stupid, yeah, but I'm more annoyed over the fact that I have never once had the option of watching a movie as cool as Casino Royale on a flight. It's always The Whole Ten Yards or some crap.
    I'm with you 100% percent on every bit of this.

    Hasn't copyright infringement happened?

    I mean material was altered right?

    Legally, what they've done is no different than when a movie is edited for content so that it can be shown on TV. So, no, it's not copyright infringement.

  11. All this talk about the holly food, Bacon butty, like Rocky said, we're (mostly) on a eat healthy campaign and the bacon needs to be extra lean or as the supermarkets are starting to sell them as, BACON MEDALLIONS.


    The story continues in the kitchen... :thumbsup:

    Jeez, you guy's are throwing the best bits away, bacon rind is one of the great pleasures in life. I bet you trim the fat off steaks and don't eat the crackling on a roast either :blink:

    And don't even get me started on roast chicken or turkey skin :popcorn:

    I still think that stuff you Limey's call bacon looks horrible. But bacon should not be lean. However, American style bacon is the only way that I'll eat fat. But I don't cut the fat off of meat or pull the skin off of chicken until after it's cooked, because lean meat sucks.

  12. I really don't know why anyone would want to see this movie. From the commercials and the clips I've seen when the guy who plays the Spartan commander has been on talk shows, the acting is really, REALLY hammy.

    I also really don't see why you'd want to watch a movie that looks like a comic book (excuse me "graphic novel" :rolleyes:). But then, I'm not a fan of comic books.

  13. I suppose so. :'(

    Of the 7 people with over 100 posts in this thread, you, me and Gordo are the only ones still on GR.net at all. Slink, Jeff and Mike are MIA. I haven't seen Dan on GR.net in a month. You've never posted in this thread as much as some of those spammers. And I'm not yet crazy enough to talk to myself.

    So, :bye:

  14. A loonie is Canadian one dollar coin (it has a loon on it). A toonie is a two dollar coin.

    I have no idea where I learned that, since I'm an American, I've never been to Canada and I don't know any Canadians.

    The pointless crap that I pick up. :rolleyes:

  15. I can't see how any shade of purple would be a good color for a desert pattern. The only colors I can think of that would be worse are either fluorescent or (in nature) are only seen on a few flowers.

    Based on nearly every picture or movie I've ever seen of Africa, most of Africa doesn't look much different than most of Texas and large parts of Australia (both of which I'm very familiar with). And any shade of purple wouldn't work in Texas or Australia, so I can't imagine what the hell the people in South Africa were thinking.

    The only reference I see to a Kwazulu camo is in a court transcript (just search for the word camo) which does nothing but mention it, and based on context it it appears to be a police pattern. No idea what color it is. But I now at least know there is a pattern called Kwazulu.

    Where did you find this pattern anyway?

  16. The camo of Kwazulu is real funky. I guess most of you haven't seen Kwazulu camo, bet ya don't even know where in the world Kwazulu is.
    I've never heard of a Kwazulu camo pattern, but Kwazulu is in eastern South Africa. It's where the Zulus are from and it's now a part of the state of Kwazulu-Natal. So :P

    I even know someone from that state, although I haven't talked to him in months.
