- Oct 14, 2004forgive this reply for being so late I send all these metal working
messages to there own folders so I can read them and keep a mental focus on
what I'm reading, and it helps to fuel creative thot.
Now on to what I'm replying to this message for.
I see I'm not the only one who was thrown out of school :) , from all the
OT messages you've posted you sound so much like me, we could have been
born mental twins if not bio twins.
I found that the teaching program was setup in a very narrow production
line format, and I was never one to follow a set curriculum I was usually
way ahead of what ever grade I was in, when I was in first grade I got work
books that covered 1st through 3rd grades, I was doing the exercises in
them at the 3rd grade level.
my teacher actually discouraged me from doing the work and do the work she
I've also had my run ins with preachers as well from when I was 8 years
old and discovered that he was molesting all the kids that went to his
church, I asked other kids what he did to them over the years and found
hundreds of kids younger and older then me were molested by him, hearing
all this I went ballistic pushed through all the adults and brought him to
his knees (he was 6'2" I was around 3'5" -4' feet tall) and only had one
target of opportunity so I took it.
this right in front of a local off duty cop and his wife. finally 15 years
later some kids started speaking up and he was finally busted only to be
shuffled off to another church to continue molesting kids.
funny thing about that cop, we were talking about something and I mentioned
about what I did to a preacher when I was 8, he just said "That was you?"
I've worked at places that mostly mussel was needed, but when it come to
some form of engineering from reclaiming swamp land to fixing harvesters
even some business plans I was the one they listened to and profited from,
I saved a friend $700-$800 a year in heating his garage by switching from
gas to using used motor oil from all the oil changes he does, to the
contractor who started building a house in a riveen that all the runoff
from the open fields above it flowed through, usually in walls 2' -8' high,
in that case I just broke out laughing at him and told him about the water
flow through that area. a few days later the foundation was gone and the
area back filled to the way it was.
ok, I think I've run on long enough, before I do a full autobiography ,
I'll end it here.
p.s. ever play chess online?
