A Miserable Failure

Image
I failed all three exams, that I wrote in one day, last week! I was close in two but what does it matter?! A fail is a fail! I know what my weaknesses are, not all of them of course and I'm going to re-write them all but the cost is too much. $139 + tax for each exam! This is the cost of stupid mistakes and laziness! I had time for each exam but if you don't know the right answer and have not studied well enough, plus you have been away from the right work for too long, the extra time means nothing!  $437.85 plus the day that I will probably have to take plus the cost of gasoline! This is the total cost of stupidity! Not to mention the price that I will probably have to pay for any reference materail, although I have many! Having references is not important. Having a good plan and executing that is! (Photo: No arrow even hit the target circle! Can I use this as the way I scored in my exams? It actually is not like. I gained the scores but not the wining scores! So if there we

An Interview for 21 in 2021!

Image
I had my first face-to-face interview of 2021 in the last days of September . This guy was first unresponsive to my reply and then when I sent him the question of when-what time, he scheduled an interview and then rescheduled it. No problem. I went on time. Here was a young Caucasian fella, whom later I found out has the same surname as the company's CEO ! He could be his son! With all of the information available these days on the Internet, I also found out that he is graduated from a ranking the 3rd tier(!) school in North America !  It doesn't matter how hard you work throughout your life. If you're the son of a CEO , or a close relative with the same surname, graduated from an unknown(!) school, you can simply be a manager(!) and that's what he is. The interview took about half an hour and he was the only one attending. The job would be in Calgary and they offered me $21 an hour! I said that was fine because I'm hoping that I can get myself out of this toilet

CFLRS Notes (44): The Chinese Psychologist!

Image
There's a big population of the  Chinese in CAF ! In fact the Chinese are the second largest race in the Canadian Armed Forces after the Anglo Caucasian s. The third place belongs to Franco Caucasian s.  The term " the " was used because by Chinese I means the Chinese how are born here in Canada or lived in Canada long enough to become a Canadian citizen and you know that once you're a Chinese who is a Canadian citizen , you can't have a Chinese passport and if you intend to go to China , you'd need to apply for visa. The Chinese Government does not recognize dual citizenship.  I'm not sure if the Government of Canada is concerned about the number of the Chinese in their armed forces or not but with all these stories about China spying on everything, looks like they should! It's been four  years now that I was honorably discharged from the forces, based on my request, but as far as I remember there were as many as 3 Chinese in the two pla

Workplace Stories (23): Lunch & Learn

Image
The horrifying(!) memories of mine from the time I worked for the so-called engineering company will probably never leave me. The animals that I saw there and had to work with are amongst the worst that I've ever seen in my life either here in Canada or in the old country. Incompetent, stupid, pretentious, rude, belligerent(!), inconsiderate, racist, self-centered, you name it! They had it all. They were, the majority of them, would say at least 90% of them, graduates of 3rd ranked schools in Canada and anywhere else in world! Some didn't even had a degree! Lakehead University in Ontario was (and probably still is) amongst the contributors to this shitty company. There were many people, who had barely finished high school or had a degree from an unknown school, from former Eastern Block . The countries which are known European but are at the same level as Bangladesh , Burkina Faso and Bhutan ! The only difference between them and the first one is Bangladesh 's overpopu

Why do Absurd Movies get Popular?

Image
I finally watched Taxi Driver the other after all these things that everyone has talked about it. Not impressed at all! Were the acts good? Yes! Was the directing good? I think it was okay. How was the story? Same stupid crap that many other movies has presented that: One loner goes crazy and kills people! And the murdered ones are bad people! So he gets away and come out as an hero! They say the film was a debut for Jodie Foster . Alright. She only has a small role! Walks from here to there, talks to the character of De Niro , the crazy guy and at the end screams a few time! The story sucks big time! What's character, Betsy , intends to imply in this movie!? That Travis ( De Niro ) is stupid and socially akward because he takes her to a dirty movie?! And then he interacts with a presidential candidates and seems like he wants to assassinate him and then goes after pimps, bouncers and such! There's no trail or anything and he goes back to his normal life!!! Why is this movie

Examinations and Inspections of the Week

Image
I've wasted a valuable year and a a half compactly! It was from Feb.2016 to Aug. 2017! Not that the other periods of my life has never gone to waste! Most of my life has been just the true definition of wasteful but that year and a half was stupid and avoidable! I was waiting to be called to CAF and I thought I would make it through and become an officer!! What a stupid dream! I abandoned everything and wasted the entire valuable time, not knowing that I would not be able to finish CFLRS and would go back home after 5 freaking months with my tail between my legs! I was full of energy, experience and had studied a lot and although the market was bad and my occasional application didn't get me anywhere, I should not have diverted from my path.  I really like the way CWB has established the practical test. I'm not going to write about the detail but if you actually have done some inspections using the common tools, you'd find it easy Why am I writing this here today is b

Burzum

Image
I was watching something in YouTube a couple of weeks ago and somehow was introduced to this crazy guy who established a Black Metal  band in the early 90's , called  Burzum . The whole band is comprised of this Norwegian guy named Varg Vikernes . His biography is available on the net and there's no need to repeat it here but just to let you know that he has spent few years behind the bars for the crimes he's committed! First of all I didn't know that Metal music is common in northern Europe or to be specific in  Scandinavian countries! I always was under the impression that it was a British and American thing! Apparently I'm wrong! There're bands (or there were, when Metal  was more popular) from Norway , Sweden and other countries in the region, probably. Metallica 's drummer is a Danish fella. These bands like other bands in other corners of the world have had their feud and in one of the related arguments or similar, Varg stabs(!) another band

The Country of many Lowlife Losers!

Image
Canada and United States , without a doubt, have both been established by people who had difficulty living in the old continent ( Europe ) and were looking for opportunities and better life. The history of the two country, of course is different but that was the mail reason why people came to the New World . This story still continues. The only difference is now because people are coming form all corners of the world, mostly from devastated countries, either by war, corrupt governments or sh*t economy, these two countries, particularly Canada has been turned to a massive sh*thole! Bulsh*ts such as inclusion, multiculturalism, no room for favoritism and lack of discrimination is just good for governments to spend their time on and allocate budget! All of the above and even worse happens on daily basis and is the inseparable part of the society. If there's inclusion, then why the hell do we have Chinatown in every major North American city?! Majority of the Chinese don't spe

Maze Peak: A Good, Challenging Hike

Image
I finally was able to do a really good hike after more than 2 years and reach the summit. Two years is a long time and we just wasted most of that period because of the damn pandemic which is not over yet. This was the third hike of the year and initially I was supposed to go with my Mexican buddy but he excused well in advance. He said that he would not be able to take that day off due to staff shortage at work. I somehow ended up to go with a Canadian new buddy and this was a little unprecedented and I don't know how we ended up going together but we did! I suggested him to rent a car but he decided to bring his own. Fine by me. I always like to have a rental or someone else's car when I'm going hiking because of the milage that is put on the car and also at times we have to hit a gravel road.  He, to my surprise, came right on time, even 5 minutes earlier and that's what I liek about a hiking partner. We hit the road at about 06:35 hours and headed toward Sundre .
