one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?"

The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking

Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through

"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 - Take 8

An architect, an artist and an engineer were
discussing whether it was better to spend time
with the wife or a mistress.

The architect said he enjoyed time with his wife,
building a solid foundation for an enduring

The engineer said, "I like both."
