    Suicidal Pony I know it's an attention whoring post but I'm doing it anyways...I just...

    submitted the last paper I will ever have to write for my masters degree in Mechanical Engineering and I graduate this Saturday with a 4.0!!!

    I've been up all hours of the night this semester writing left and right and I can finally say that I will never be going back to school again. At least not at a university and spending all my time locked in books and writing.

    I know it's a "hey, look at me." post but I am just so damn glad to be done with all this.

    I do want to say thanks to LT's posters, you've filled much of my spare time with interesting conversations and helped me pass the time when I got sick of looking at anything to do with school.

    Every time I've been with you this past semester you've been drunk and chasing tail. That makes pulling a 4.0 even more impressive.

    Troof. Kudos to you. You can put this on the resume under "multitasking" in the skills section.

    As a representative from a very large group of dreamers who started out in engineering school and couldn't hack it, a very respectful tip of the hat.

    Good for you! Congratulations! Fun fact: once you're done with school, you don't have to guess what someone else thinks the right answer is! Now, you can be the **** who thinks YOU have the right answer!

    I will be with the B-1 bomber crew til Aug. 2013 and I'm officially signed on til Dec. 2015 without having to pay any money back but just b/c I am curious what you are discussing job wise, what do you have?

    Congrats, thats a big accomplishment!

    I'm graduating with my MBA (nowhere near as hard to do as your degree) on Tuesday and my wife is graduation with her PhD in organic chemistry on Tuesday as well.

    Its a great feeling to be done with school.

    My grandpa was in planning during the development of the B-1. He was with the B-52s for years. Retired in 85(I think)

    The B-1 is an awesome weapon system and an impressive piece of engineering. All the intricacies that were laid out in the planning and design phases are impressive when you consider the type of software and equipment they had to use at the time. Today's designing is much easier and computers can do so much of the work. The strength of the war fighter is aided by the B-1 and the B-1 is a testament to the intelligence and attention to detail that everyone had on the project.

    It's funny b/c all the B-1's are actually different in length with some being longer than the others by ~6 feet. In today's precise engineering world the differences would be measured in micrometers. But as with all good things, they must come to an end. The B-1 has been on the chopping block at the Pentagon for some time now. I fully expect it to be out of service within the next 6-8 years.

    We have the 2018 Bomber coming (which gets denied by just about anyone when asked the question) and it will take over heavily the role of the B-1 and the B-2. I don't know what effect it will have on the B-52 but times they are a changing.
