Lol
That is very funny considering i am from ireland, not Canada nor the US.

 Seriously though, who takes there time punctuating their sentences and looking for grammatical mistakes? Oh jolly good! Look at me! I am a snobby nosed person who has nothing to do except to play AWS alllllll day long! Yes bring in the champagne please. Mother! Oh mooooootherrrrrr guess what! What is it my son? I just bought an airplane! Oh... Um im so pleased for you son. Thats just how all boys/men should be! Playing AWS for their whole life! Jolly good! Ahahah.

Get a liiiife.

Grow up, lad and dont be such an arrogant twat : I'm an ill-educated cockney, no college or university or any of that education that you enjoyed. I try to write well, with fairish grammar and half-way decent punctuation because the internet is not 'English' : its international, and most users do not have English as a first language, so its only polite that we at least try to stay within the basic rules of written English and not assume all are at ease with txtspeak or parochial slang.

And if you think playing AWS is such a waste of time, then depart, leave, go forth and multiply and we will miss you, oh, how we shall miss you but we shall be content that you, at least, will have got a life.

Internet caused so much harm to my language skills that I'm frequently not sure what is correct anymore :D
4 years ago I could beat native speakers on grammar ^^

Back on-topic:
Still at university - 2 more months to go. BEng in Electrical Engineering with majors in "Power conversion & use"* and in Renewable energy sources. Technically, I should get 2 diplomas unless my Uni lied on that part (wouldn't be unprecedented).

Anyone around here who could possibly give me a job ? ;)

*something alike to power engineering with more emphasis on electrical parts.

Next to studying and having a part time job I now started my own company together with a professor. It's called www.Ticketspy.nl What we do is keeping students and young urban professionals up to date about flash deals in aviation and holiday's. Our innovative part is that we also decided to publish articles with tips or insight on how to travel more comfortably or explaining something like yielding.

The site is in dutch, but if you have any feedback on the lay out or anything let me know :)

I know nothing about the CRJs, except "everyone" says they bankrupt the airline. So that leads me to the fact that you cannot be a pilot, at least an employed one. If we believe what certain longtime AWS player says of those planes at least.  ;D

But do you have FGAT on the planes then?  :P   (we just installed them .. very nice)

Sorry to hear that. Is it normal in America to get such news from a union rather than from the management?
