No matter what people talk about with this move, I would imagine people should be happy with the buzz. Everyone was talking about Paul's move last year, no one said it had to do with him being a man. She is 5 x world champ. It is news worthy and people will talk about it. Good and Bad. Has nothing to do with her gender or sex or CiSness. The only bad things I've seen really is the loyalty thing. I'm fairly certain some of that was cast at Paul too.

40+ years in the engineering field says you have no clue what you're saying.

McBeth came on these boards and said himself he is not designing, but you know better.

Not even a good try.

What is fair. It sure seems like a lot of interest now, and not nearly as much during the season.
During the season we are all out playing not stuck inside on the computer watching snow fall and dreaming of Spring to return. Structure contracts so the end in the middle of summer and watch the number of people talking about it drop substantially.

Or maybe just enjoy the fact that people are interested in the offseason moves at all. Be it Paul or Paige the mini drama moves the needle during a boring part of the year. Mostly men play by your own numbers so isnt it obvious that mostly men will be talking about it? There is no hypocrisy or irony, just obvious information Terry is twisting into some sort of social justice for his own sake.

I hope she does real well with her new contract!
I died on this hill with Paul's thing too. At most, advisors are what they are. Calling yourself anything more that that is a kick in the teeth to the people who make things of this nature their life's work.

I spent lot of time building injection molds. I spent all my adult life in the machining fields. Now, I don't always like engineers, but I respect the hell out of what they do.

I want to see 10X Champs vs. 1 Chump.

Paul & Paige vs. Lloyd Weema.

The champs have to throw lefty and they play worst shot dubs. Weema just tries his honest best.

CAD is one small part of design my good man.

13+ years as a Design Engineer has brought me into contact with a number of people like you in our field.

I tend to just nod and smile.

The fact you just used "mold cutter" says you might wanna check out of this conversation bud.
