I'm a student here at the University of Victoria. I'm studying Nuclear Physics and the History of Physics in the 19th and 20th Centuries. Needless to say I like physics but in the summer months I usually get a job doing some outdoor menial work with the local municipalities. Watering the fields and riding a John Deere mower (Not quite a as fast the bike but oh well) for union wages is good and fun way to make money. You tend to have to get up early but you're done by 2 o'clock which leaves time to go play

What does a sign man do exactly? Is it the designing of business logos and stuff or the construction chicks who hold the stop and slow signs?
