Scott, where do I sign up for the hack club? I know enough computer code to screw something up, golf game is poor, smoking for 25 of 35 years, careless with framed saws, and posess a horrifing sense of ill-timed humor and candor, I think I qualilfy.

Oh, I was also an Electrical Equipment Repair Specialist in the USMC as an 1142 MOS. An EMT. (Ambulance not conduit) Forklift operator. (10Klbs) Training NCO. 1000 yard shooter, once shot a smiley face in a target at 500 for fun. [Linked Image]

Almost Eagle Scout. (Caught smoking... General decline in additude...)
Almost HS grad... (Night school)

23 yrs. in the trade. Industrial and commercial. Been to several training schools and short term classes through the years. The work I've done has never required me to have a license. My first 12 yrs. I was a traveller, and worked around the country for a few different contractors doing mostly industrial work on power plants (nuclear, coal, fuel oil, natural gas, refuse), paper mills, foundries, and the such. I was forunate during that time to be able to work on a wide range of applications. I worked equipment ranging from 4-20ma to 69kv. After I was married and the kids came along, I had to settle in one spot. So for the last 11 yrs. I've been with the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Florida, doing mostly commercial type work, although I take care of our 5 power houses that are up to 12,470vac.

23 yr. electrician
Several projects as a supervisor
Certified journeyman with Fluor/Daniel (for what that's worth)
Level 1 IR themographer
HV stress cones and splices
Airial lift operator
Certified lift operator by JLG
Security clearance with Nuclear Regulatory Commission
Appliance repair training by Maytag
Conduit, cable tray training
Too much more to list

I know I will forget something, but here goes.

I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate slurs for Cuban refugees. I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently.

Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I woo women with my sensuous and god-like trombone playing. I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love and an outlaw in Peru.

Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello. I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I’m bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard.

I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge. I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don’t perspire. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer, I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat .400. By deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles.

Children trust me.

I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

I balance, I weave, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekend, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prize-winning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet. I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.

I could try to get one, but I have little to no money to begin with, and don't drive.
