Ok so obviously.... wait, wait let me explain. I just got off work and i like to relax reading so cut me some slack here.


Learning new skills and expanding your knowledge doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. There are loads of free resources on the Web that can help you find instructional videos, tutorials and classes to learn a wide variety of skills from fixing basic car problems to speaking another language. With 100 sites to choose from, you’re bound to find something here that will help you learn just about anything you could want.


So a few things. 1, no more excuses for paying over 100k for an education that you can get online for free, non, zero. Also, no more excuses for basing your opinion on ignorance. If you have an idea or a premise, research it and draw your conclusions from what the evidence suggest and not what you feel is right.

So now having have had said that (haha), enjoy!

So your saying I can go to these websites and learn what I need to learn for free, print off a piece of paper and get a job? I love the ability to have a free resource but your saying it will replace me having to fork out 100k a year? No, it will just give me the ability to carry a conversation with people of all kinds

Thats funny... cant tell you how often i see fresh grads having to be trained on the job.

College is an advertising ploy, real learning happens on the job with experience. Apprenticeships is where its really happening.

I completely agree with you, college doesn't teach a single life skill. They are run by corporations, to maximize profit for the owners.

It's quite shameful to watch these interviews being conducted on major college campuses where students response to who won the civil war is "is that a trick question?"

Thats what you get when you cram peoples heads with useless information.

Listen... i can retain information better then most people, but theres a limit to what i can retain and most of it is stuff i need to retain.

For instance... i have 2 marketable skills. I can set tile, install hardwood and laminate floors and im a boxing/mma instructor. I dont have anymore room in my head to learn anyother skills. I used to know some programming learned some python, html, c and all of it. I stopped because i just dont have the patience to learn anymore complicated and intricate skillsets.

Good on ya, I am currently in my mid 20's trying to figure out what I'm supposed to do with my life. Did two years of school about 4 years ago and I've been building concrete precast buildings in Seattle ever since. Do I continue to build this world and learn my craft, do I go back to school for that lousy piece of paper that has no guarantees, do I get a job that won't destroy my back. It's always been so hard for people to understand what life is about, it's not about the money and the job. It's about the day to day experiences that you will take with you to the grave, the people you touch and what makes you happy. It has been an uphill battle for me learning what this puzzle is all about, but as I climb it gets easier to see the big picture.

The trick is not the measurement itself but how you place the blade. When i make a cut i dont just look at my mark i remember how i took the measurement and i cut according to the mark. Hmm, that probably doesnt make sense.

The blade can go down the center, the right, or the left.

a reply to: marc72What the others are saying about you cutting wood,I was always taught to cut to the waste side of the line when I served my time as a wood machinist.

a reply to: safetymeetingI'm talking just over 20 years ago but I was taught in both metric and imperial at work.I suppose it was because a lot of the older joiners and machinists still used imperial

I try to cut to the right of the line using a hand saw but I'm always short.

safetymeeting I can do imperial inches as well being UK.


I built this. It's the inside of a Mercedes panel van, my home. But if I showed you a close up you'd see gaps of far as your eye can see. LOL
