Do you think the Black Lives Matter people are going to boycott a chicken place?

I made the right decision because after 2 years I was forced to go to work. I was an electronics tech in a Telemetry company. I soon became a lead tech in the group. I had to use a computer to test the computer interface we had for our equipment. So I learned the EMR computer and later the PDP-11 computers. I learned the binary instructions on the PDP11. I then went into Field Service and went on site to fix hardware. Doing that I could create small diagnostics to test the system to troubleshoot system problems. As time went on we moved to a VAX computer made also by DEC. After that we used Unix platforms using RISC processors. We embedded three or more in our main box along with preprocessors we created. This had me learning different programming languages. Fortran, C, Assembly, microcode, etc. At this time I would go out and troubleshoot the hardware and software. I would teach the systems to customers and also work along side of customers that had contracts for people working on operating and maintaining their systems. In teaching and working beside customers I learned a lot from scientists and engineers. For Instance one Hughes scientist who was involved in the study of the upper atmosphere told me that the Earth and Moon have the same average temperature. When you see me talk about different things much of the time it comes from those scientists and engineers. A complete course on a Telemetry system usually took 7 weeks of 7 different classes to teach. So I had a lot of time to learn from them on breaks and lunches. Also I would hang around after class for a while.
My response was to Mother Jones. You answered my question pretty clearly there Bilko. Now am I to believe I am a real dumb dumb, or am I smelling a big stinky anal explosion here?
