I can see that you are *still* lost. It's a "light bulb joke". If
you don't know what those are... you need serious help in this
"The Guy's name was SURGE..." Should have given it away.
A power surge can kill light bulbs, etc.
You got lots of catching up to do in life as well as the industry.
I don't care how long you've been on the planet nor how long you've
been in the industry. It's obvious that you've missed something.
Actually, any trade or profession is what you make of it. I have two
friends with only high school education who have risen to the top in the
electronics field and command over 100K a year in pay. They are both in
charge of several highly educated engineers each. The difference is they
believe in themselves, and not what a piece of paper says they should be.
Did I say any differently?
It can be done, but it's difficult->impossible, depending on the
circumstances. A degree is an entry ticket. After the first job
(five years) it really doesn't matter as much. Right or wrong,
there are those (HR types mostly) that still make the shingle a
Someone with only a high school education making it to the "top" of
the engineering design biz isn't ordinary, this puts it into the
"difficult" category, at least. I'd say this sort of thing is more
on the impossible side today; liability, HR rules, and all that.
What exactly is it that you're disputing? BTW, it helps to quote
what you're disputing.
No, but one word is hardly a quotation. Dr. Evil put "quotation"
"marks" around "LASER" too. ...and in your first reply you
What exactly has your dust-ruffle up? Speak now, or forever hold
Eveyone I have known in this field that lacked the "sheep skin" or at least
an equitable training were always less than adequate. The few that were very
bright still were crippled by the lack of education. I suppose there is
always the exception to the rule...Ross
In the mid-'80s we hired a technician right out of the Columbus OH
(where I happen to be tonight ;) DeVry school. I was working on a
Swiss-Navy project, so they wouldn't give me one of the
"experienced" technicians. I took him under my wing and would only
let a few other engineers touch him. In fact he rarely waned to
work for anyone else. ;-) After about five years I was ready to
move on (he didn't know it yet) and he came to me asking if he
should take a job in the research division. "What, you nutz?!".
Two years later he had been promoted to the same level as myself.
e never would have come close to a the engineering review board in
the group we were in.
It does happen, though it is rare.

On one occasion many years ago, I interviewed a prospective non-degreed
engineer who was looking for a job, mostly for designing capacitor charging
supplies.. I did so reluctantly. To my surprise, he greatly impressed me and
got the job. All in all, he did a credible job. But when he got things wrong
because of a lack of understanding, it was a doozie.

A real engineer with considerable amount of experience characterized you as
"simple". He was just too kind. Unless you have any clue, let me explain.
Why bother to ask the lamp question? With your analytical skills, or lack
thereof, it will take you light-years to figure it out. Your elevator doesn't
go all the way up. You have too many loose electronics and on a different
wavelength - instead of emitting light and energy you give off insults and
bullshit. The closest thing you will ever come to quantum physics is quantum
stupidity. You would not know the difference between a transient and a
standing wave if it hits you on the head - much preferred is across your
hands. With your mind in the gutter, you would envision a multivibrator or
the function f(u) reside permanently up your ass. AC/DC in you case is the
flip-flopping between dementia and end stage Alzheimer's. The maximum
illumination you will ever perceived is by shoving your head up your ass.
You were already told to do that by another real engineer as to go "Fuchs"
yourself. That was the best advice you will ever get.
If you still considered yourself an engineer it is clearly not from what you
know but who you blow.
Feeling slighted are we? Your last name here is fortuitous. And
simple to boot.
