    If Gary's in the Therapy Field, he's a chiropractor.
    Can you feel him pulling your leg?

    I think his professional title could be "Shennigator". :cool:

    In the Marines, we liked to use chiropractors as interrogators! They always got the enemy to crack! :angelic007:

    Retired Bus Driver, plusses...free travel... Negatives...everything else, never work with the public, I am now most respectful of everyone who has too, shopworkers are on the front line everyday. I have been driving a bus when a guy with a Gun came on and demanded money from me and my passengers...I told him to f off and he did ... The police caught him casually walking down the road with ski mask and gun in his waistband like some cowboy....wellhouse road, you will know that bit fergiebilly. Also guy tried to slash me for absolutely nothing...absolute crack head...I have 1000 stories, most not nice.

    Robert:
    There’s nothing like retirement! I’ve really started getting involved in the shave world over the past few years! This is a wonderful collection of folk! I love the diversity of backgrounds. Makes for great conversation!
    Enjoy your shaves,
    Jeff

    I design communications satellites. Mostly office politics plus sales & marketing along with a lot of advanced math and physics thrown in. Weird job, really.

    That can happen. I'll check with the Committee Chairman. Since he retired Charlie @wristwatchb is usually available unless he's still hanging pictures.
    Is it getting crowded up there yet?

    I'm a fitter welder and pipefitter. Currently building an ocean going barge, with two more in the pipeline afterwards.

    That's a good feeling to know you have job security for at least two more repetition. How long dos it take to build one of those? What do they haul?
    Being a barge it's not powered, just a big empty hole in the water? Well I guess it not "just". Lighting, bilge pumps, multiple compartments and bulkheads, and other complications?

    I'm down on the Gulf of Mexico in an oil patch city. I see these types of vessels daily. Since we live on alluvial soil, rock and gravel is shipped in for the Department of Transportation and concrete production. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production and shipping is big and growing. The petroleum industry uses lots of rail, but over seas tankers happen, too. Thank for building the boats!

    Well, space, it turns out, is really big. So that helps. But there are a few popular intersections in the lower orbits where traffic is not so sparse, and that has some people appropriately concerned. A few have suggested that someone should just go up and collect up all the older junk and bring it down. But when something is the size of a car and traveling twenty times faster than a bullet, catching it and slowing it down to deorbit is an expensive proposition.
