    If your getting all F's then its your fault, you odnt care enough to bother to study more to get a better grade. THers no reason to fail. Teachers help you, they tell you whats on the next test almost verbatum. They even give you ways to practice and apply what you know to further enhance your knowledge for tests, they give you practice. THers no reason to fail....unless of course.....your lazy

    You can try sleeping in a stall. As long as no one's there, it won't smell too bad, just set an alarm on your cell phone.
    Or find a closet, jam it shut from the inside.
    There's a small room at the stop of the stairs at the landing that leads up to the roof. Couple of guys put up this wood panel there and we all take naps up there. You nap next to the door and if someone goes up there, they push the door and wake you up.
    The boiler room's also cool as long as you don't mind the noise from the furnace (bring ear plugs).

    You don't have a big desk you could build a sleeping compartment underneath? Remember that episode of Seinfeld where George has the carpenter build the sleeping compartment with the cup holder under his desk, but then the boss comes in and George calls Jerry and tells him to phone in a bomb threat, and everyone gets under the desk and sees everything George did? That was absolutely hilarious!

    I did something like that. At my job, I had a door I could lock, then I had a blow up mattress that my sister-in-law smuggled in for me. When no one was around, I could blow it up with this electronic pump in like a minute or less, then use my cell phone to set an alarm. Worked like a charm every single time. Suckas!

    You know what's a good exercise for an engineer (and also a frustrating one)? Having them document what they've done. Right now, I'm involved in a reverse-engineering project of some of our own code and the end-goal is to write an architectural document that can be presented to customers. This of course was probably something that should have done to begin with as a top-down approach but ce la vie. It is a very challenging thing to do and something that exercises all disciplines on both the technical as well as communications side. You have to be able to communicate concepts and designs in both written, visual and even verbal formats.

    As far as the math vs. english (I'll take this to mean a general term for any written/verbal common language) debate goes, all I have to say is that one of the fundamentals of science and engineering is writing a report. Your work is worthless in the grand scheme of things unless you can effectively communicate it to others.

    do you honestly see more books than machinery around you?
    I have 1 laptop on my desk at work,
    29 Texts (technical manuals).

    I'm not saying english nazi's are making the money,
    I'm saying that Books outsell Machines. Someones
    reading for all those sales, eh?

    I think you better go reread the tax laws. And look up the tax tables... I can assure you that you do not have to gross $150k to net $75k.
