So check this out. I was directly involved in the making of these two (makes of) Hummers. I programmed the CNC machines that made the molds for the rear carpet of these trucks.
Yes, the carpet in your car is molded. They heat the material to a few hundred degrees, then place it into the mold. After that, it is moved to a waterjet machine, which cuts it to the right size, and cuts any holes (like to go around the brackets on the bottom of your seat).
Yes, my job is pretty cool.

Ok, so we've been home a week now and I haven't updated.
We had a great visit with my father-in-law. I wasn't expecting him to act just like Bill... just kind of like him. But boy, they're alike down to singing to the radio. I met an aunt & uncle of his who have three horses. (I'm quite afraid of horses) They also have a dog, who did not scare me (for those of you who know how I felt about strange dogs when I was younger).
We never got on each other's nerves, by the way.
