The oldest profession

A physician, a civil engineer, and a consultant were arguing about what was the oldest profession in the world.

The physician remarked, "Well, in the Bible, it says that God created Eve from a rib taken out of Adam. This clearly required surgery, and so I can rightly claim that mine is the oldest profession in the world."

The civil engineer interrupted, and said, "But even earlier in the book of Genesis, it states that God created the order of the heavens and the earth from out of the chaos. This was the first and certainly the most spectacular application of civil engineering. Therefore, fair doctor, you are wrong: mine is the oldest profession in the world."

The consultant leaned back in her chair, smiled, and then said confidently, "Ah, but who do you think created the chaos?"

Is there any relation between IQ and stupidity?

I don't think they have any relation. I got very high IQ but I'm stupid (at least my girl friend said that).

The only fact I sure about stupidity is that humans are stupid.

Only two things are infinite—the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not so sure about the universe. — Albert Einstein

Who's the boss?

When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss. The brain said, " I should be Boss because I control the whole body's responses and functions.”

"The feet said, "We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get him to where he wants to go."

The hands said, " We should be the Boss because we do all the work and earn all the money."

And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs and the eyes until finally the asshole spoke up.

All the parts laughed at the idea of the asshole being the Boss. So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and refused to work. Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered.

Eventually they all decided that the asshole should be the Boss, so the motion was passed. All the other parts did all the work while the Boss just sat and passed out the shit.

Engineer: Career or hobby?

Why I'm here? Where am I? What is my future?

I only know the first question.
I not sure about the second.
And I don't know the last.

As I always said, love your job as an engineer but don't fall in love with your company.
But what happen if you like your job but the company don't like you.

What will you do if you fall in love with a girl, but her parent don't like you?
Should you leave or should you stay?

I'm asking myself this question last year and today I ask myself again.
Should I stay or should I leave?

I wish I know the answer. Maybe only time can tell me the answer.

Engineer: Career or hobby?

I do not know how many of you are ambition to become engineer. I hope I'm not the lonely one.

When we were young, our teacher always ask us about our ambition. Doctor, nurse, teacher, lawyer, scientist, policeman, president, etc. But seldom people will say engineer. Why? Maybe because of the defination of engineer.

Oxford define engineer as

a person who maintains or controls an engine or machine or a skilful contriver

But what is contriver?

Contrive is a verb that mean manage to do something foolish, thus contriver is a person that manage to do something foolish.


Ok, engineer is either an engine or machine controller or a person that can do "foolish" tasks.

Oxford define career as
An occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person's life, usually with opportunities for progress.
and it define hobby as
An activity done regularly for pleasure.

Back to the title, who willing to deal with "foolish" tasks all day long as a career?

Secondly, an occupation frequently related to paid, however engineer never related to high paid as manager, lawyer, doctor, etc.

Thirdly, what can engineer progress to? Engineer manager? So it's a manager or still an engineer?

By all these evidents and facts, I think engineer is a hobby more than a career.

Anyway, as I always said, happy to become an engineer. Love you job but please don't fall in love with your company :)

An engineering manager was once asked his definition of "Teamwork."

He said "Teamwork is where everyone in the department is doing what I tell them without whining."
