I Think I Am An Engineer

Out of boredom, I googled for 'engineer jokes' and found some pretty neat ones. Some funny, some hilarious and some just hit too close to home, especially the 'you might be an engineer if...' list. I thought that it would be fun if I took only those relevant to me from the list and compiled them into my very own. So here it goes:

Sewjin realises he's an engineer because..

  1. he has a habit of destroying things in order to see how they work.

  2. his idea of formal clothings is a T-shirt and and a pair of jeans.

  3. the blinking 12:00 on someone's VCR draws him in like a tractor beam to fix it.

  4. he carries on a one-hour debate over the expected results of a test that actually takes five minutes to run.

  5. he can type 70 words a minute but can't read his own handwriting.

  6. when he watches American high school movies, he thinks Spring Break is metal fatigue failure.

  7. he assumes that a “horse” is a “sphere” in order to make the math easier.

  8. he is aware that computers are actually only good for playing games, but is afraid to say it out loud.

  9. people groan at the party when he picks out the music.

  10. he chuckles whenever anyone says "centrifugal force".

  11. he has more friends on the internet than in real life.

  12. it is sunny and 20 degrees celcius outside, and he is working on a computer.

  13. he had a pet named after a scientist (Laplace).

  14. he considers any non-science course “easy.”

  15. he goes on the rides at themeparks but wish to sit backwards so he could see how they do the special effects.

  16. he hasn't bought any new underwear or socks for himself since he went off to university.

  17. he knows that "natural frequency" has nothing to do with bowel movements.

  18. the “fun” center of his brain has deteriorated from lack of use.

  19. his favorite James Bond character is "Q," the guy who makes the gadgets.

I swear, this list is so true it isn't even funny.
