Crotalus-

 

Any need at your company for some coop students? Buddy of mine, I think he has a 4.0 GPA, is thinking bridges. I told him to check out Figg Bridge who i did some some sampling work for. I'm personnally in Nuclear/Mechanical Engineering... Mechanics I, II, and III and I'm sick of truss analysis and vectors- not sure how (why) you guys do it.

The bridge industry is wide and varied. Figg is a great company that specializes in "signature" bridges. The firm i would for specializes in "workhorse" bridges. The kind you cross 10 times a day and never notice unless you stop to fish under it :)

 

 

Good luck to you and your buddy.

You can never have too many engineers. That's unless they're software engineers working on YOUR project. :j_k:

Speaking of engineers (Before I got my degree I couldn't even spell engineer, and now I are one...), you may be aware that engineers have a drive to make things better and to fix things...

 

In the French Revolution, it was customary to execute suspected enemies of the state at the guillotine. Further, it was the custom that if anything went awry with the execution, the prisoner was set free.

 

A lawyer, a priest, and an engineer are sentenced to death. The lawyer is brought up to the platform, and is expounding on the virtues of a free society, how there is injustice, and so forth. The executioner asks the lawyer if he has any final requests, and of course the lawyer insists he is innocent and asks to be freed. The executioner places the lawyer in the guillotine, with his head facing the basket. The lawyer continues his argument about how he, and all the likes of him, should be set free. The executioner pulls the rope, and alas, nothing happens. The lawyer is set free.

 

Next the priest is brought to the platform. He says a prayer, and when asks for his final request, he asks to be placed into the guillotine facing up, so he can look towards heaven in his final moments on earth. The executioner obliges. The executioner pulls the rope, and as he does the priest exclaims, "God have mercy!" Nothing happens, and the priest is set free.

 

It is the engineer's turn. The engineer is brought to the platform, and when asked for his final request, he too asks to be placed in the guillotine face up. The engineer explains he would like to see the workings of this amazing machine in his final moments. Again, the executioner obliges. Just as the executioner is ready to pull the rope, the engineer says, "Hold it, I think I see what the problem is, let me fix it..."
