No, I wasn't talking about money, you obviously know nothing about manufacturing.

Yes, I know about the upfront costs of trains. You obviously know nothing about the public component involved in capitalism.

Regarding manufacturing technology:

"Metal working: the use of beams and lasers for more efficient, higher speed, and more easily automated metal cutting, forming, and welding is a well-established technology which awaits cheap high-power lasers for its widespread application. Less well known, but with perhaps greater impact, are applications of surface heat-treating, differential. crystallization, and laser annealing."

You obviously know nothing about it.

mphasis in optics, 1998 San Diego State University BS physics UC Davis 1990 4 years work experience of computer programming and data processing.

I apologize that I had thought that our college/university educational system was mostly doing just fine. I had blinders on and was ONLY thinking of the quality of the education that one can get from them and forgetting about the high costs (unfortunately the government subsidies had been whittled down for decades already).

I suppose that the old adage about the fastest ways to riches may now have a broken leg: inheritance, marriage, and education. Inheritance is not easily controllable but do you know any sickly or elderly relative who may need help? It may sound crass but sickly or elderly relatives do often need help near their end-of-life (there are children of theirs who are far-flung in our highly mobile society who will experience hardship if they have to interrupt their own family lives to take care of someone else). Can you somehow "cash in" your education by marrying into money? Marriage may be possible but not easily if you do not have a job. Can you create a job for yourself using your education? Do you have any assets? Can you borrow against them with lower interest rates than your student debts? Maybe you can reduce your cost of living by moving in with someone, perhaps an elderly or sickly relative who needs care or a buddy.

Good can be a mighty powerful force..gentle as it can be it still holds great power. It's an energy force, just like bad. We need to empower ourselves with positive thinking and I'm trying to keep my thoughts in a positive, energizing mode so I can survive this and not crash into complete and utter despair. I won't lie, it's really tough and I find myself talking to myself as a Tony Robbins cheerleader most of the time. I may just get committed to an institution before all this is over.

I lose my job, my things stolen and my world seems to come to full stop. Yet, everywhere around me, life goes on, grass keeps growing, trees are budding, humans are shopping and eating and driving around, going to work, paying bills. I feel left out of the orbit. But, I know it's just my perception that is defeating me. I must continually seek sources of fulfillment and recharging that keep my mind sharp and my hope and faith in a brighter future alive.

I had this revelation last night that right now, in this moment is the best of the worst that could be happening to me and so I need to just relax and enjoy and savour this moment and reap as much joy as I can from it and not miss it by wasting time in despair.

Driving would be good

I could do lighting that would be fun

I reviewing a job board at its seems there are more marketting and sales jobs than actual production jobs

It seems our economy is upside-down

the jobs involve getting others to buy something

Amen, Gillian. I've read many of your comments over the months and have to say that you are one of the true faces of modern America. I can relate to just about everything I've read from you. And your age is definitely going to be a big problem. There isn't supposed to be such a thing as age discrimination but everyone will tell you it's very real. There are more kids turning 18 than there are jobs being created, so with each passing day there's more competition for those jobs and it probably isn't going to get better. I'm in the same boat, slightly older and also unemployed. I just wish I had some words of encouragement for you.

You might need to expand that expertize, just a bit.
