FormlessOne: They're nothing compared to the IT admins, though. Friggin' sadistic sociopaths./I keed, I keed.

sxacho: The civil PE exam has about an 89% pass rate vs about 23% for the Structural I exam.
I drunk what: sxacho: The civil PE exam has about an 89% pass rate vs about 23% for the Structural I exam. Are you really trying to say that they're essentially the same?does the piece of paper getting stamped know the difference? or care?if you can't decide which one you like better, let the architectural stamp itor if he's not around maybe a software can stamp it for ya?maybe soon the art history major's can get a engineer's stamp tooi'm gunna start studying for the Philosophy Engineering PE exam, those stamps are going to be priceless
Nurglitch: A little confusion about means and averages maybe?
SultanofSchwing: two towns over: My job is a gaffer. A lighting guy, designer yes. The word is old english, anyway: some of my collegues say they are the "Chief Lighting Engineer" in their credits instead of gaffer. My question: are they right to claim engineer status?People are gonna shiat on me for it, but I'd say yes. An engineer doesn't have to be limited to certain disciplines, at it's root an engineer is someone who comes up with ways to solve technical problems.
brantgoose: Finally, you have the smarter sort of engineers. They take English literature courses once they graduate and have jobs because they would like to have been English majors instead of engineers, or because they realize something is missing that leaves them cold and empty inside, or simply because they realize that engineers can't communicate their way around a cardboard box. This class of engineers frequently graduate to management positions where they manage engineers and even real people.

Private_Citizen: Another joke:An engineer, a priest and a surgeon are playing golf one day, but they keep getting held up by a slow group ahead of them. Frustrated, they ask their caddie what's the problem with the slow group. The caddie explains, "Those are firefighters who lost their eyesight while saving orphans from a fire!".Feeling chagrinned about his impatience, the priest says, "Oh, that's terrible, I'll pray for them." Not to be out done, the surgeon chimes in "I'll donate some time and see if we can repair their eyes."Then, the engineer asks:"If they're blind, why can't they play at night?"
WhippingBoy: Do they mean real engineers? (e.g. those with bona-fide engineering degrees?) Or those useless douche-nozzles who use the term "engineer" loosely because it makes them seem more accomplished than they actually are? I farking hate those tourist bastards.
SovietCanuckistan: There are a lot of engineers on Fark. I never realized there were so many trains out there to drive.
Scruffinator: The engineers at my work hate me. I'm always finding new ways to break their machines, and even though the skilled trades department can fix them, it drives the engineers nuts that they don't know how I did it in the first place./nothing else to add
WhippingBoy: slapmastered: *PHEW* God, I thought I was the only one who had that problem with their wife.No, I also have a problem with your wife. WTF is up with her reluctance to do anal?
oldfarthenry: A good engineer NEVER does math in his/her head. We don't even trust our own brains.
oldfarthenry: littlett's: oldfarthenry: Mrs. Henry HATES it when I put my calculator on her back to determine the thrusts required to get the job done.She expects you to be able to do the math in your head. She is just upset that she married one of the slow engineers. :PA good engineer NEVER does math in his/her head. We don't even trust our own brains.
Nurglitch: SpectroBoy: Egoy3k: Mechanical engineer here. It's not that we hate everyone, we only hate stupid people. The problem comes in when everyone is stupid..The problem is that an IQ of 100 or lower is FREAKIN STUPID and that covers ~ 1/2 the population.A little confusion about means and averages maybe?

SpectroBoy: catusr: mechanical engineerMayhem_2006: As a former Civil Engineer,You know the difference between a mechanical engineer and a civil engineer?Mechanical engineers build weapons, civil engineers build targets!/ tip your waitress
oldfarthenry: That's because we have to work with those marketing people:
We need to co-leverage our brand loyalties and deploy our solutions to the demographic segment. Let's take this offline later if you have the bandwidth.
