I'm sorry, you must have mistaken us for people who can just quit their jobs on a whim. Mall retailers typically pay shit and we're all struggling to pay bills. THAT's life.

Stat pay? I won't get paid stat. My company pays wage/overtime OR commission.

Then you should be happy for the extra hours. I don't understand people that complain about having to work and then complain about being broke in the next breath. If the job is so horrible, find something else. I've worked many holidays and yes, it does suck... but THAT'S LIFE.

i agree with red celi.

IF you have a full time job, and are scraping to get by. than its your OWN DAMN FAULT. thats right. YOU OWN DAMN FAULT.

it all depends on your life style. buying useless shit you dont need, driving a car you cant afford. having credit cards and loans comming out of your ass.

and the biggest and most retard thing i see young people doing is moving out of there house as soon as they graduate. on average fresh outa high school you make say $8-10/hr.. if you work full time that needs you say $1000 - $1200 or so a month. and now you have to pay rent, and that shit aint cheap.

i am a decent example. i make shit for money, i just got a raise and i make 8.55/hr... on average i take home $500 a cheque. thats ONLY $1000 a month. ontop of that i have a loan i am paying off, $400 a month. a $450 bill on damages on a bike i crashed, a $1000 engagement ring not to mention all the mantenance required on a bike.

and i still have alot of money left to my name, its all about how you manage your money. i dont waste my money drinking, if i drank every weekend.. thats 80-100$ gone for nothing.. if i had a cell phone, which 1 in 3 people do. thats 30-50$ if not more gone. etc etc.

you make and create you own wealth and destiny. unless your parents kicked your ass and shuved drugs down your throat and were kicked onto the street. you got nothing to complain about

i almost forgot. and goto school if you wanna become anybody. unless you are very intelligent and intelectual, which is about as common as pigeon shitting on your head. your going to get stuck with a shitty job, with shitty pay, and shitt benefits.

You need to remember dirt cheap mess fees, and cheap living fees unless you decided to live off base.

In the end you profit more than a civilian would.

my dad told me to join the army, lol, no joke. And if you have a college education, you get a higher rank immediately and decent pay as far as i know. I considered it, was thinking about being a nurse on base, then we went to war, lol.

and just to put my 2cents in, i save and work for 4 months out of the school year, so i am jobless for 10 months, yet, because of incredible money management skills, i have more money in the bank than most people i know......and as far as complaining about min. wage jobs, it's called pay equity, you are being payed based on the work you do and the skills and education it takes to do that job, there is no way that someone working in the service/retail industry should be payed anymore than min wage, and i've worked service since i was 14.$8 is quite a bit for min. wage, considering some provinces are still only paying $5...anyways, many people survive off of wages like that (ie. students), it's money management skills.

Depends what you've done in school/civilian experience and what your job would entail.


I've considered it..... Know tonnes of people in and know a few recruiters. All in all I think I'll just join the malitia.

in the army. if you can join as an officer, but you have to be enrolled in a degree program. you start like 5 or so rank higher.

the one great thing about the army is the benefits. practically full coverage on anything and everything. plus they help pay for school

thats why you dont see very many girls in training with the army. there were a few girls, and they were definatly not your regular girl.

nonetheless, they ALWAYS slowed us down. and we had to pay for it. they took there sweet time getting ready in the morning, and it was us outside in the pushup position on a nice winter morning at 5:30 am.

and as lame as it is.. they actually go alot easier on the girls in the beginning, its just retarded. they get special treatment because they cant do the job a guy can

lol. i bet my gf would own you in anything endurance related. she qualified for the para course through army cadets. as far as i know the standards are the same as in the reg force. not all women are useless winers. but ill agree with them all being slow and having to wait out in the cold forever to go do pt

there is always exceptions, and that goes for guys to. some of the girls owned the guys physically.. im generalizing here.

when i was in training, i was in the best shape ever. beat me in endurance. id have to say fuck that. i could run between 8- 9 mph pace and hold that for 1hr at least.. not to mention i could pullup over 100 lbs + my body weight.

i know in basic training.. they go easier on the girls, but slowly they face the same yelling and shit etc.

i'll never forget the day i forgot to put my helmet away and i couldnt find it.... uh oh

yeah no shit, the most expensive part of your kit. but somehow i forgot it and left my helmet by my bunk or in my locker. but it wasnt locked.. and when we are gone doing our training, they ran sacked our rooms. the flipped over the lockers, beds everything. and whatever fell out or wasnt secured, they took.

so when we got back it was like "wtf happend".. after about 16 hrs, you want to relax.. but your bunk is rolled over onto your locker and all your shit is everywhere.. and i when everything was back together it was like... "uh, anyone seen my helmet".. shit, they took it *gulp*

so i had to go down 1/2 between the 2 sections where the officers and mc's are and knock on there door.. and lucky me, i had a chat with the nastiest one lol

it wasnt as bad as the guy who lost one of his magazines lol

Few random pics. Here is a few hrs in and me finally getting fed up with this damn car.
Overall shot.


The engine that wont come out. I finally split the engine from the tranny, have all 3 motor mounts off and there is still something holding the tranny on at the back of the engine. Looks like a motor-mount is in the way.


The hole in #1 piston


And the parts motor.

I quite like Shannon lake. Lots of good hills and you almost never take the same trail twice.

But where I am, I just get on the bike and ride up Bell mtn, and out in the new golf course. There is constant construction there and alot of property to rip on. Its mostly mud which is what I like. Than there is a section in the shade which is all snow... great fun to rip on. But yea... mud.... I fucking love it except when I get stuck.

On sat the bike was firmly stuck. Mud just over the top of the rear sprocket. I ended up redlining the engine and dropping the clutch... all it did was stall

edit: Black mountain and area. Bell mtn which is located at the top of toovey, to black mtn(towers) out down gallaghers rd to the pits, and anywhere in-between. Street riding I go out to McCullah station pub and sometimes take a rip down the greenway.
