    I'm an idiot

    Quite angry at myself now. Wasted one year on not doing my homework..
    Exams tomorrow. Three classes in one exam, Freezers/ Aircondition, Engine calculations and steam.
    I know nothing. Im certainly going to fail.

    Since you are posting here and not studying I advise you to get very drunk, have a hedonistic night of debauchery and go down in a blaze of glory. At least you'll have a good story to tell your buddies.

    Remember you paid for those classes so you're wasting a lot of money by not taking your classes seriously.

    A non-idiot might use the time he has available now to study. But since you are a self-proclaimed idiot, posting here might seem like a good idea. Here are some cliff notes to get you through the exams:

    Freezers are supposed to be cold.

    Air conditions increase comfort of a home in the summer.

    Engines can be powered by steam.


    Now, it's time to get a ride in.

    I live in Norway, these classes are free.
    Altough, one year away from work, loans etc makes this a bad year for me if i don't pass..

    Posting here a good way for me to put away stress, you guys are like a psychiatrist.

    School is an evil empire that can work for many, but you might as well quit now so maybe you won't be in debt over it for the whole rest of your life.

    Oh, at first i thought you might be going on someone else's dime, like your parents, now that i see it's free for you and you're screwing it up and wasting that opportunity for others and yourself, you're an idiot.
    Round and round we go

    Tanks for cheering me up :P
    there is a 100% position open at the bikeshop i work. Will work there if this exam is as hard as i think.
    Who doesn't want to be working there compared to beeing an engineer with three times the salary?

    They're not really free, the Norwegian taxpayers, including your parents, are paying for those classes. So when you finally feel like you're ready to try school again then you need to focus on the task at hand.

    You've come to the right place for relieving stress. Hope you feel better.

    BTW, you live in a great country!

    If classes are free, then why are you taking loans?

    That is kind of scary to think 40% passes. Are you sure you are not in the US?

    this course im taking is international. The same requirements and the same classes.
    STCW made regulations after some ferry sunk in the English channel. Makes every country/schoool/certificate equal worth.

    And its three parts, i cant do 20% in one, 20% in the second and zero% on the third
    need 40% on each part

    Your percentages are off.

    50% Ride your bike like Forest Gump.

    Have a shot of whiskey, then a beer, and if that
    doesn't work smoke a joint. After that you won't
    give a sh*t.

    Oh. I did this one semester in college. Bad bad BAD idea. Repeating a semester is not my idea of a good time.Good luck, I hope it works out better for you than it did for me.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    Better yet, drop a shot glass of whiskey into a glass full of beer and immediately guzzle it down as fast as you can. Guaranteed to forget your woes for a a while. Tomorrow is another day...

    mwah ha! Entertaining thread. Good luck, Skorp. I hope you pass, you idiot.

    If it's multiple choice, you have a fighting chance of getting 40%. When in doubt, I always go with "B."

    Skorp, don't forget to review the stoichiometry matrix and Gibbs Free Energy Thermodynamics. Well, nah...you're probably screwed.

I hope you fail and there is some small print that says if you fail you are required to compensate the government the full cost of what it took to try and educate you.

    Hey, I'm from Australia not America.

    Good luck Skorp, you might just surprise yourself and do well.
