Are you refering to green stuff? most Dutch students do not smoke it that often, on parties we prefer MDMA or coke. Which is seen by the rest of the world as something destructive while it's actually quite pleasant if you use wise and safe :)

Interesting that little fact..decriminalize pot, and you don't get a country of pot heads. It sort of kills the arguement most gov'ts put forth of creating nations of druggies...I don't really use any type of narcotics anymore, but I'd much rather see it legal. They talk about 'gateway' drugs..well no s***...if you go to buy some weed and a dealer has some some heroin on sale..Anyway, I've been high on a few flights. I ate 5 g's of hash for a flight once, that was mega.

Nope, we are not quite that big hehe.
We mostly do road transportation, and you will find a lot of "our" trucks driving through Germany :)

Hmm, I must pass on that one, I am in the airline industry, and don't much care which trucks I race along when on the Autobahn. At least not since I am older than 6. I remember I used to count trucks we drove by, when we went on holiday ;D


Are you refering to green stuff? most Dutch students do not smoke it that often, on parties we prefer MDMA or coke. Which is seen by the rest of the world as something destructive while it's actually quite pleasant if you use wise and safe :)

Yes, I was ;D  Only smoked it a few times... usually during break in school ;D went on a little "walk around the block" with some mates... my first one was a 5g Blunt with 2 others... I pulled the short one, so had to take the HeadShot... coughed through 3 lessons, until I was sent home ill, to not disturb the lesson anymore ;D

But I don't even miss it really, so I feel like not being addicted, unlike nicoteen, smoking like a chimney :-[ .

Never tried Coke, or anything other than Alc, Cigs or Pot, and am happy with such :)

cheers,
Jona L.

Obviously you travel through the S-Bahn system of Munich which is underground LOL...

Haven't used a train since February (since I got my car ;D :P ) but before that, traveled every 2 weeks to my dad and back, and he already came to the station 10 mins later than planned, because the train was ALWAYS 10 mins late at the arrival place. For the years 2005-2011, I had maybe three positive exceptions, and a good dozen of negative ones (20mn +).... same for the return trip...

So, I stick to what I said :P
Title: Re: Your Day Job
Post by: Infinity on December 04, 2012, 11:34:12 PM
Well true, the trains sometimes come in late, but most trains have bumper windows now with longer standing times in the stations that just get reduced to eliminate delay, which works pretty well.

What IS indeed worrying is the behaviour of DBs employees when there is some kind of suicide or other accident. They just go heads over heels and don't know what to do. There seems to be absolutely no fixed workflow for those cases. There would be if DB had accepted my consulting offer, but I guess Burson Marstellers name was bigger than my firms ability.

Do you have EPR or N1? How about, do you ever use ELAC, FGAT, or TRK/FPA?
Title: Re: Your Day Job
Post by: Aerlingus1916 on December 15, 2012, 10:19:57 AM
N1 as in N1 thrust control? EPR as in Engine Pressure Variation? Yes I do have them. And I yes, I do use ELAC. On LH routes I use TRK/FPA but on SH it is basically pointless because TRK/FPA keeps your plane on the FPT (Flight Plan Track) and on shorthaul you really just climb, cruise, descend line up for ILS and by following the FP it would be time consuming. :)

Aerlingus
Title: Re: Your Day Job

We also do use ELAC because it is built in with our aircraft as we have an all airbus fleet.

Nice way to edit your initial reply after I proved you wrong,. I saw what you posted, lol.  :laugh:

For example, you do not have both epr and n1 on the same plane, which of course you did not know, but claimed to "have" both. Or your ridiculous explanation on trk/fpa, or how you "use" elac.. Hahah!)

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.

Currently a Uni student, on an engineering track. Hopefully into Astronautics & Aeronautics (more specifically, definitely planes - not interested in space at all, don't know too much about propulsion). The program isn't too competitive, so hopefully I get in.

Otherwise, I think I'm doing a 360 and will instead major in Econ.

My job title is Systems Programmer, but I do many things...way way way too many things  ;D :( ::)

I program audio/video/lighting control systems.
I also manage our office IT equipment.
I also design audio/video/lighting control systems.
I also create CAD drawings for audio/video/lighting control systems.
And probably other things that I can't think of right now.
The joys of working for a small company

But saying that I done 25 years on London buses, which started off as a fun job but as time went on it became harder and harder, what with the abuse, being spat at and attacked. The life of a bus driver nowadays is so demanding and stressful. According to statistics it is the second most stressful job in the UK behind doctors.
