Understading Engineers

Recommended Posts

Understanding Engineers #1

Two engineering students were biking across a university

campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" The second

engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own

business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the

ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The first

engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably

wouldn't have fit you anyway."

To the optimist, the glass is

half-full. To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty. To the engineer, the

glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers.

The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? We must have been waiting for

fifteen minutes!" The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen

such inept golf!" The priest said, "Here comes the greens-keeper. Let's have

a word with him." He said, "Hello George, What's wrong with that group ahead

of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?" The greens-keeper replied, "Oh,

yes. That's a group of blind firemen. They lost their sight saving our

clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free

anytime!." The group fell silent for a moment. The priest said, "That's so

sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight." The doctor said,

"Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if

there's anything she can do for them." The engineer said, "Why can't they

play at night?"

Understanding Engineers #4

What is the difference between

mechanical engineers and civil engineers?

Mechanical engineers build weapons. Civil engineers build targets.

Understanding Engineers #5

The graduate with a science

degree asks, "Why does it work?" The graduate with an engineering degree

asks, "How does it work?" The graduate with an accounting degree asks, "How

much will it cost?" The graduate with an arts degree asks, "Do you want

fries with that?"

Understanding Engineers #6

Three engineering students were

gathered together discussing who must have designed the human body. One

said, "It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints." Another

said, "No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many

thousands of electrical connections." The last one said, "No, actually it

had to have been a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline

through a recreational area?"

Understanding Engineers #7

Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers

believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.

Understanding Engineers #8

An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn

into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in

his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn

back into a beautiful princess and stay with you for one week." The engineer

took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess,

I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want." Again, the

engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful

princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want.

Why won't you kiss me?" The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't

have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog - now that's cool."

I would show this thread to the engineers that I work with all day, but they wouldn't understand it.
