    Wait a minute...I'm the boss and still can't...
    (The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon

    We were required to wire an empty furnace cabinet to a "gutted" condenser" when I went to trade school. With no schematic. Learned a lot from that. I guess schools now just want to produce graduates not techs.

    most likely that cheaper NETE certification. They use the "ani mini min e mo" method (Yes, I know)
    Why do I only get a HVAC license when reality is I'm a plumber, electrician, counselor and financial expert once I'm working on someone's equipment?
