Wow..I didn't know that any pharmacies had the transformers to step up power for industrial soul crushers. Most of the models I've seen operate off of 460V at the minimum, but there could be smaller models that have come out since I've been been in the field that could work off of 220V.
I'm assuming that even a smaller sized soul crusher could chew through, what, about 70 to 100 souls per minute?

I'm a teacher at a preschool that's located on a major movie studio lot. I don't have any connections, so don't ask…I did almost run over Bruce Willis on my bicycle, though…

I'm a student, in my senior years at a Grammar school. My past job was a Christmas temp at GameStation, but they're looking for part timers now, so I hope to go back soon. It was a lot of fun, and I can't imagine working anywhere else. XDDD!

Full time student. Though the phrase “Full-time” is misleading. I spend far too little time on schoolwork. Leaves plenty of time for nonsense and artistry.

Oh, college.

*sigh* I'm that guy you'd walk past in Wal-Mart, dropping all the supplies on the floor, and then getting yelled at by his boss. Then you'd be like, god I'm glad I'm not that bumbling idiot.

Produce clerk / Officer in the Canadian Navy / university student.

… Free time? What's that?


…. Officers in the Canadian Navy have to moonlight as produce clerks?


Good thing Canada isn't high on everyone's suicide-bomb/invade-and-convert-to-godless-communism lists, huh?

i have the best job for my situation

i only work during the holidays, too much homework during the week (damn highschool) but my mum has old friends at a school supplies store called “Wooldridges” it supplies school books to almost every high school and primary school in Western Australia.

i work there full time holidays pretty much, half the time doing odd jobs at the office and half the time going to schools to distribute books

the reason the job is so good is that i get 30% of every book and stationary impliment i need! sometimes even more! for a small $300 booklist this saves $100 for those of you who can't do math :P

i'd still like a job at a fast food outlet or something, save on all the junk i eat :)

I am a Chief in the US Navy working in a squadron.

So where do I find the time to do three webcomics? Um, during commercials in TV shows I like and on days where the family has left me alone…

I try not to take Family Time away, but sometimes hey, I need Me time!

Heh…

Green Tangerine…I salute you…No really I would have to if you were here! LOL!

I teach Macromedia Flash and Dreamweaver at a community college. I'm also a freelance Web designer, video editor, animator and producer. And I'm a full-time dad to two little girls. Over the years I've been a barman, a salesman, a marketing director, an instructional designer, director of information services for a shady international finance company, a professional drummer and a property manager.

I'm working like crazy to be a full time professional animator, and the rather grueling schedule of daily updates for Clench and Cheese is self-enforced discipline to help me get the work done.

I'm a faculty librarian at a little college on the East coast of the US. I started Second Wind as a way to unwind after work and to entertain my wife and daughter. I would also be somewhat guilty of using it to help me forget all that I should be doing… like my tenure research & publishing, shoveling the walk/mowing the lawn (depending on the time of year) doing dishes….

You sir, have my respect, and personally, I think Clench and Cheese the Animated Series would be better than Christmas. :D

I spend my working day inserting a hollow metal tube into empty teddy-bear skins and spraying huge quantities of synthetic fluff into them to the demands of the latest small child.
In layman's terms; I work at the local branch of the Build-a-Bear Workshop. :P

However now that I'm ‘behind the scenes’ I'm surprised at how many of them actually are interested in that kind of thing and are always trying new ways to do things, reading journals, etc. There will always be some who are into professorship because of the research and subject instea of the teaching, but the problem that most professors have when it comes to educational methods is that they're terribly underpaid for their time and they have priorities.




That is one of the truest statements about the area of education. It is not only that they are underpaid, they are also forced to face mixed classes with children needing specific handling which they are unable to do. It's like being shoved into a Level 10 playing field when you are barely Level 2. And that's not the worst case scenario. There are also many cases of educators being stunted or obstructed in their striving for better teaching, or being told to do unrealistic things given time and resources. Their efforts are then bound to fail, which leads them to eventually become jaded, burnt out or uninterested.

…but I am digressing here, as there are other threads for that. I only wanted to say I 100% agree with what was said :)

I currently work for my old school district as a substitute janitor. I can completely control my schedule, and I make $8.50 an hour. I clean classrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, cafeterias, hallways, stairways, pretty much whatever you'll find in a school.

It gets rough at times, chief! That's why I joined up with the NAVSEA folks so I could at least be doing something for the navy besides keeping my teeth clean! If it weren't for the 2 week ATs we pull, I'd probably go nuts. I'll be doing my 2 weeks this year up in D.C. doing a 2nd class leadership school. Next year though, I'm going to try to get a ride on Fleet Week.
Haze Gray and Underway!! Man, I haven't heard that in a while! What kind of ship?
