“I work at a machine tool automation company. We build the machines that build the cars. High school wasn’t for me. I didn’t respond well to being lectured and having things jammed into my brain. So I started out sweeping floors at the factory, then I got moved into the saw shop, and now I do electrical installation. I’m up to $17 an hour now. And I’ve started studying PLC so I can move up even further. There’s actually a lot of opportunity in my field. There’s not much competition. Nobody my age wants to do this stuff. They all want to go to art school or make video games or something. I think maybe it’s because too many people are being told to do whatever they want. Because no matter what you think you can be, there’s still gotta be people like me.”
I’m starting with a new building series on my YouTube channel. Baisically, in this series I will be rebuilding every single lot in the Granite Falls. My aim is to have prices similar to the original ones. I started with the smallest and cheapest one - Granite Falls Campground.
The Campground is available for download on my Gallery (HeyNekoMei or #simswithmei).
Instead of marching down fifth avenue march your ass to learn how to fix your car, build a fence, go move something heavy by yourself, change your oil, shoot a gun…wait you mean you’re actually allowed to do all the things men do on a daily basis? Surprising isn’t it?
Trade in your $45 fresh mani for a set of nails that have horrid cuticles and are painted by dirt. Trade in your smooth soft hands for hands that are cracking and dry from working outside. Trade in your silky straight hair for hair that’s knotted in a bun and covered in dirt. Trade in your nice pressed clothes for ones with holes, grease and paint. Trade in your $200 shoes for shoes that are so dirty you can’t even tell what brand they are.
You don’t want to be equal to a man, you just want something to bitch about. If you wanted to be equal to a man you’d already be doing all of the things that make you equal. This may be a surprise to you, but America does offer that option.
That’s the thing about women, there are two types in the world…those who speak and those who actually do what you’re speaking about.
Ask the automakers and tech companies trying to build cars that drive themselves to defend their work, and they turn to two key arguments: Autonomous cars will save lives, and, by eliminating the need for a human driver, they’ll open the car to new uses and users.
Fascination, 1974. Created by Paul M. Lewis as a “Space Age Transportation Innovation” but plans to build 50 cars never came to fruition and only 3 prototypes were ever produced by the Highway Aircraft Corporation
Saab Sonett 1, 1955. Created as a side-project by a group of Saab employees as a race car for the European circuit. A rule change disqualified it before production started (there was a plan to build 2000 cars) and only 6 were made. The name derived from the Swedish phrase Så nätt den är (“how neat it is”, or more literally “so neat they are”)
