    Caught a criminal tonight

    A little background information, I'm going to college in Milwaukee, I live off campus near a neighboring college. My roommates and I are renting a 6 bedroom house, which has a good sized driveway that is able to fit all our cars (rare find in Milwaukee).

    My roommate was waiting for a package from Amazon, so he went out to check the front porch at like 9:30PM. We use the back door, so he had to walk passed all the cars to get to the front porch. On his way back in he thought he saw someone crouched down in the shadow next to his car, he yelled "Who the "F" is there?" kind of thinking it was one of us trying to scare him or something. He wasn't sure if it was maybe a thief or something, so he dashed back inside and asked if we were trying to scare him or something because there was someone by his car.

    We all go outside and look around and find a few plastic bags tucked underneath my roommates front tire, one that smelled like marijuana and a small empty Bose case. The neighboring college police drove past a couple times within a minute, so we flagged one down and asked if he was looking for someone and he says "yeah", so we told him there was just someone in our yard that matched the description, but hes not there anymore. They get maybe 8-10 guys there within a minute and search the area and find him hiding in the neighbor's yard.

    The neighboring college's police arrested him. They told us he broke into a car nearby. He took down my roommates information since he saw the guy. One of my roommates is from Florida and his dads a high ranking police officer there, so he is familiar with the castle doctrine in Fl, but asked me if Wisconsin had it. We got into a really good conversation with one of the police officers about the potential of getting it with Gov. Walker in office. You could hear the excitement in the officers voice, he seemed like a very level-headed guy.

    Time to go watch the A-Team.

    I'm going to Milwaukee School of Engineering, I live right by Marquette though. They are about 2 miles away from each other.

    Way to go!!!

    What kind of engineering? Always remember Civil Engineers build targets, Mechanical Engineers build things to reduce the mighty work of Civil Engineers to rubble.

    Computer engineering, at our school it is mainly focused on micro-controllers (embedded systems), not so much actually building "desktop computers". Almost the entire market is really embedded systems; things like phones, fuzzy logic rice cookers, guidance systems, industrial robotics, etc. I personally want to go into the defense industry when I graduate. I'll be building things that guide the mechanical engineer's things to the civil engineer's target.

    My old roommate was an IE and always said that. We always call them "imaginary engineers".
