    Default Hi everyone

    Hey I don't know if this is the right section but. One of my friends uncles is a merchant marine and i hear he makes a ton of money, and hardly ever works. That's what I wanna do. Can you all tell me how to get to the USCG home port website. And if any one wants to tell me which company will hire me ill appreciate it. Also I totally used the search function, I swear! But I realized that a pointy stick wont fit through the internet's tubes so I think I'm safe.

    The more time I spend on this site the more I understand the pointy stick.

    I just wanted to make sure we had one of these in every section. Yes I too have come to appreciate the effectiveness of the stick.

    All that money, is it in short tons or long tons? I guess if the uncle gets paid in nickels it's possible.

    I assume it happens on other forums as well but can you imagine popping onto a firefighters, logger or aircraft pilot forums and putting up this kind of post? Going to the area with technical discussion about the trade and saying" hey, how do I get a job?"

    "I've heard that commercial airline pilots flying those four engine jets make good money, can some one please tell me the address where I should send my application?"

    It does seem ignorant.

    You may want to solo in a Cessna 150 first but I hear simulator time counts.

    HA! That's were your WRONG! Using electronic replication technologies, one can thrust a point stick deep into a rube's brain through both fiber optic and satellite transmission modal paths!
