    what exactly is your internship?
    my internship ends this week and I could not be happier.

     
    My intern was keen to have a look around the mine before he finished, so I organised a tour with a friend of mine today. We got to see a blast from up close (1500 feet, as close as you'll ever get) which is a very rare thing. Explosives are fuckin' awesome.



    That little shovel next to it is about the size of two 2-storey houses. Boom!

     I got to do the same last year with my boss while on a mine tour. I'm a big fan of mining blasts, so cool! Good on ya for doing that for the intern!

    On another note, first leg of the interview today, lets see how this goes...

    Watching stuff of that magnitude go boom is awesome.

    I used to work on software that optimized quarry shots. That was fun.

    Good luck matey, I hope it all goes well.

    The older I get (I'm over the hill) the more the people side of work matters to me. Yes I need to work my ass off, but if I can't take 3 hours out of my day to get an intern/graduate stoked on the industry there's something wrong.

     Many Thanks! Love that attitude, my boss last summer was like that as well. Both days went well, got to tour the mine and meet some of the crew, everyone's really friendly. They still have some more candidates to interview so I likely won't hear anything for a few weeks, lots of people are on summer holidays as well. No issue, just means I get to enjoy the rest of August and look for jobs in better locations in case this doesn't work out.

    I work for Rio Tinto. They look after their people pretty well. There is still shit to deal with, but overall it's great.

     

    My company just got a new contract with Rio Tinto. they are doing a bunch of Exploration wells for a potential potash mine. They seem like a pretty good company to work for

    My license picture is from when I was 15. Doesn't expire until next year. A liquor store owner accused me of using my little brother's ID, to which I said, "Why the hell would I use my younger brother's ID to buy alcohol?"

    The DMV is the worst. But if you are in the area, try the one in Bishop, CA.

    You guys are getting away with pictures on your license from 10 years ago and I keep getting shit just because my hair is blonde on my license and I'm now a brunette? I almost got denied alcohol the other day because of it. My face hasn't changed, so I don't know why they make such a big deal out of it.

    Best DMV in California--that place is a dream. The June mountain of DMV's (except they didn't close it for the season).

    Pffft, I rarely even get ID'd for booze anymore. Maybe it's a small town thing and part of is probably because a lot of the time I'm recognized, but there is also a small part of it that scares me a bit. I'm not THAT old... I don't think.
