I'd give you Karma, Jason, but I lost the ability when some one took away my neutron moderation powers.
I think the original poster should enlist and fill the void of excellence left by me a few years ago.
I disagree with some of this about how you don't get to design stuff...I had this guy who, when assigned to scrub the diamond decks in lower level with a wire brush (EMI), found a whole bunch of the little buggers, cut the wood handles off of them, and somehow affixed them to a pair of old bilge boots so that he could scrub the decks simply by throwing a little water and soap on them and walking around.You can also design bilge grabbers, and many pieces of arts and crafts made from copper wire and such.So there, lots of designing to be done.
We desgined a steam blaster from an old steam out hose pinched at the nozzle. That tool was dangerous but a hell of a lot of fun (and pretty effective).There, see, more design.
yeah, maybe just making really crappy work more interesting by increasing the level of risk...with a little arts and crafts to boot!
I am nearing my ship date (April 21, 2008), and I am thinking of my long term goals. Some may argue that I shouldn't even think about that stuff until I'm in the fleet, but I would disagree. Anyway, I hope to one day hold a bachelor's degree in nuclear/mechanical engineering and then a MBA (eventually). I'm quite an ambitious young man, maybe too much, I don't know, but I don't want to work in a power plant or be a technician my whole life. I would like to take advantage of the gifts God has given me in leadership and creative thinking. Using my knowledge of "how things work" to successfully run a company is a dream of mine. I 100% understand the "needs of the Navy" mentality, and I am prepared to submit to it. However, who can offer advice as to what path I should take from here on out in order for me to achieve my goals? Meaning, should I attempt to become an officer or SPU, be a lifer, what should I do once I get out, etc? Also, I'm married, so if that changes anything, let me know. Sorry if I've rambled or made grammatical errors, as I typed this pretty quickly.Thank you,Future Nuke (I hope!)
The real creativity came when we were playing head games with shipmates. Woe be the nubs.
There is nothing more destructive to friends and shipmates than a bored nuke! In addition to headgames nukes have figured out more ways to dump water on their buds than any species known to man!Mike
Just dump? A hose full of water attached to a 100# air outlet taped in the framework and aimed at the Upper Level enginerooms sound powered phone made my day more than once.
