I hit that "apply to companies button!"

Well, I have been a member of this forum for a little while, and have learned a ton. I had a few arguments, gained a few friends, and especially a few guys and gals I would consider mentors. Your wisdom has been valuable, in helping guide me in the proper attitude, and realistic expectations. I have my preferences, in the direction I want to go, to start out, but will take whichever opportunity presents itself, and run with it.

Robert "Dragon Breath", G Town, Old School, Errol, bud A., Daniel B., Brett, Susan D., Myoshi, and Rainy. at one time or another, All of you have had significant impacts on my way of thinking, and even put me in my place when i needed it.

I am actually still filling out the pages, but had to pause, to write this...

I look forward to the continued wisdom and guidance, that I know will be readily available.

stay safe

It said there was an error in submitting. Can you tell me if it went through?


Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Yeah, it went through. You were sent a confirmation email listing the companies it went to. Did you receive that?

What did the error say?

It may have just said something like "Email address already exists" which would mean the button accidentally triggered twice and the second time it was just ignored. But everything went through just fine.

Congrats on getting the ball rolling! Hopefully you'll keep us updated as things progress.


Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.
