How Can You Not Love Engineers?

I have a lot of engineers among my friends and extended family.
They are fascinating creatures.

They are calm, methodical, and organized.
They write numbers and letters in neat, organized rows and columns.
They use tools and get calculus.
They look before they leap.  They solve problems.

They can sometimes put this non-engineer over the edge
with statements like, "That makes no logical sense, Louise."

A Favorite Engineer in My Life!

News Flash!  I make sense to me.  I'm doing just fine, thank you!
I love to poke engineers, just to see what happens.
So tonight I'm going to have fun, poking fun at them!

A big thank you to my awesome brother-in-law Martin
who sent me this funny engineering video.
He's one of my favorite engineers (geological)!

  1. Those are good! And of course there is a Far Side included.

  2. did you hear about the two engineers and two attorneys going on a trip via train. The engineers were intrigued the attorneys only brought one ticket, but both got into the bathroom and when the conductor knocked on the door,one hand presented the ticket, he ripped it and gave it back...

    On the way home, the engineers only brought one ticket, but the attorneys, to their shock didn't buy any. The engineers got into a bathroom next to the one the attorneys hide in. Then one of the attorneys got out, knocked on the door where the engineers were hiding and said, "ticket, please."

    1. Brilliant, Jeff! LOL I can't wait for my brother to see this one! Stay safe and healthy!

    1. Happy Friday, Diane! I can't resist jokes about Schrödinger's cat. All the best to you!

  4. So funny! And yes, WD-40 and duct tape can fix ANYTHING!

    1. Thanks, Debra! I am never without WD-40 or duct tape. Have a good one!

  5. Is your significant other an engineer who constantly tells you better ways of doing things? If so, bless you! :-D

    1. LOL! No, I married a lawyer. But my brother!!! And my brothers-in-law!!! But that's okay, I love them all dearly! Take care!

  6. Great post Louise, we couldn't do without engineers at some point of our lives.

    Take care.

  7. Oh my gosh, I was here for the IWSG post but this one made me laugh so hard I had to respond to this one instead. Rotary supercollider. Paid by the hour. ROFL. My dad was an engineer and he would (I think) almost entirely approve this message - although he would probably have some details he'd want to clarify, because - see above - he was engineer. And I'm not kidding about the fact that he would probably critique some of the details. =D A blessing and curse, having that kind of mind. I miss him so much sometimes.

  10. haha they were sure fun ones. Can fill in many hours pumping up that tire. And it would seem that duct tape is the go to for most anything, as many a redneck already knows lol

    1. Call me a redneck ~ LOL! I've gotta have duct tape! You'll love this: After 101º F (38.3º C) Sunday and 87º F (30.5º C) today, we're having snow tomorrow! All the best to you!
