tradesmen

this is a rant post of tradesmen vs IT guy...so there are opinions and detesting.

don't get me wrong.....some of my best work mates happen to be tradesmen. however...i walk past tradies everyday @ TAFE and guaranteed there are at least 10%, if not 20% who are, as i like to call them....fucknuckle tradies. know it alls, bogan dipshits, think they're better then you 'cause you wear a business suite, predjudice assholes, call them what you will. but that's what i like to call them, and i think it's fitting.

so one day after being judged by another fucknuckle bogan, i finally get to thinking...if this moron can do a trade like basic welding or a light vehicle mechanic and supposibly do an adequete job of it (which i doubt).....then someone like me (and you) coming from a technical IT background could sure as hell do that job 10 times better then this fool ever could. right? well that's what i'm thinking.

and on the flip side, i'm also guessing this idiot wouldn't have a hope in hell of doing (my job) web design/graphic design/video editing/database programming, even if he studied it for the rest of his stupid bogan life.

i'm now in a position where i could leave my job and do a trade like this, and show once and for all how useless you motherfucking tradies are. can you tell there's a bit of resentment there? oh yeah. but that's only a tiny reason for wanting to move on from IT.

i actually always wanted to be a mechanic. more so....i want to then move on from auto mechanic to better things, like an aircraft maintenance technician/engineer/pilot. ultimately restoring (or help restore) WW2 warbirds. that has always been the ultimate dream of mine.

so tradies everywhere beware.

apparently, you can go to russia and be a passenger on a mig-25 foxbat and fly to 80,000 feet...and literally be on the edge of space.

i'd really like that.

someday

someone once told me...sleep > eating right > exercise

go without exercise for a few months and you're somewhat unfit and gaining weight
go without healthy food for a weeks and you're not recovering at all and emphasizing the previous point.
go without sleep for just one night....and you're entire body including your nervous system, immune system, etc, is completely fucked. don't even add alcohol.

so i've come to learn that sleep is the most important thing. period. you can't escape it. it's an unavoidable debt you have to repay if you miss out on it...or you suffer and maybe even die.

...and it pisses me off everyday, because there's simply not enough time in the day to complete anything.

i wonder if it's too late to be an aircraft engineer and pilot at my age?

when i was a kid, more then anything i wanted to restore WW2 planes and fly them.

specifically the tempest v, tempest mk II/sea fury, fockewulf fw-190, and the p-51 mustang...

...and most of all, the supermarine spitfire.

i have much <3 for big 18 cylinder radials and inline v12's.

if only it weren't just a dream.
