maybe this is caused by our overwhelming desire to avoid stupid people, and this is our method of telling stupid people to get lost.

it helps if you spell engineer correctly. If you can't spell engineer, you can't bitch.

Many fail to see the big picture.


Plus, the bad ones kind of make everyone hate them, kind of like Cops. Some engineers are good, some are bad, kind of like line workers.

Any engineer that I know is always over-analyzing everything, which makes it very difficult to get anything done. They must talk about and go over every possible situation and possibly outcome before acting. Just keep it simple and to the point.

An engineer friend of mine says that just because you can use autocad, it doesn't mean you are an engineer.

I've worked with autocad users that couldn't even read the prints they made. One even had a coil hold down arm traveling through the solid back plate of the machine on their print. Those of us who build em saw it, he couldn't.

Because there to so smart their dumb!

No dealt with a few engineers like that before, they are thinkers which makes them good at what they do, I couldn't come up or think of some of the shit they do. But as far as street smarts I'm on that level.

But yeah I think it's how their momma raised them

Wow! does that mean I might be able to trade my busted NP231 case for a non-busted one, or do you need to have your own 4x4 website to get that?

Depends on whether you buy it from someone with a return policy.
