    I'm an engineer and work at one of the biggest Tier 1 auto supplier but not really looking to move to the Natty unless the price is right :wink:

    I'm a facility engineer (no I'm not a janitor) and work on large projects in our group. We built a brand new 290k sq/ft factory starting in '13 and finished that up the beginning of the year to match the plant I work at. Best / Hardest / Stressful year and half of my life. I worked on putting the entire utility infrastructure into the facility, manage the installation of (3) 4000T injection molding machines, all of the equipment that makes them work, and the building design. I worked with one of the best teams ever, we all worked hard and made a great time out of it.

    Right now I'm working on installing a new IMM at our facility in Ohio and waiting to do a new expansion at our facility.

    Do I have to admit I am an attorney? If so than I am an enforcement attorney for a federal agency. Try not to hold it against me

    Awesome! I know what a facilities engineer does (but most probably don't so I gotcha). Everyone has a price! If my client ever needs a facilities engineer I'll have to look ya up!

    I simply taught, preached, and wrote God’s Word; otherwise I did nothing. And then, while I slept, or drank Wittenberg beer with my Philip [Melanchthon] and my Amsdorf [Nicholaus von], the Word so greatly weakened the papacy that never a prince or emperor did such damage to it. I did nothing. The Word did it all.*

    I think that it is funny that Pony Express became Flying Monkey...I don't know what it is with breweries and flying animals...Flying Monkey of Kansas, Flying Dog of Maryland (formerly of Colorado), Flying Fish (of New Jersey)...I'm waiting for a brewery called Flying Squirrel to open up...
    Oh - and as a response to your question - "If I only had a brain" comes to mind...so I would say more like Wizard of Oz. (I don't work for a brewery - I would drink up the profit margin.)

    First, let me offer congratulations on an outstanding and dynamic posting thread. Ingenious in nature and yet kept simplistic in form and style. I can't grant you 500 extra bonus beer karma points, but I'd like to, you've earned it. Out of all the threads on "BeerAdvocate" over all the years, Your thread by far, is the most interesting of all.

    Thank you!
