    Default How Engineers Think

    Two engineering students were walking across campus when one said, 'Where did you get such a great bike?'

    The second engineer replied, 'Well, I was walking along yesterday minding my own business when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike.

    She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, 'Take what you want.'

    The second engineer nodded approvingly, 'Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't have fitted you.'

    -----------------------

    To the optimist, the glass is half full.

    To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty.

    To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be

    ----------------------

    What is the difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers?

    Mechanical Engineers build weapons. Civil Engineers build targets.

    ----------------

    '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.'

    -----------------

    An engineer was crossing a road one-day when a frog called out to him and said, 'If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess'.

    He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, 'If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week.'

    The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.

    The frog then cried out, 'If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want.'

    Again the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

    Finally, the frog asked, 'What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess that I'll stay with you for a week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?'

    The engineer said, 'Look I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool.'

    (I'm an engineer and I think these fit just fine).

    Heh, one I like is:

    They made me laugh. One that's always made me chuckle is the electricians 'guidelines' of, "...red to red, black to black and blue to bits
