A joke about 3 engineers who are delusional.

A mechanical engineer, an electrical engineer and a civil engineer are sitting around and talking about God.

The mechanical engineer says, “God is a mechanical engineer. Just look at the human body – a light-weight skeleton with moving parts holding up a massive frame of muscle and fat. God must be a mechanical engineer!”

The electrical engineer disagrees. “No, no. God is an electrical engineer. Just look at the human body – the nerve system routes electrical signals to the brain which is essentially a computer. God must be an electrical engineer!”

The civil engineer disagrees. “No, no. God is a civil engineer. Just look at the human body – only a civil engineer would run a toxic waste pipe through a playground.”

 

The only thing surprising about this article is that Forbes published it.

Given recent actions… I wouldn’t expect much change in the status of ‘dunce’ for corporate leaders for about 15 years or so. For some reason, Canada has chosen to follow American corporate trends from everything I can see.

I most likely will be returning to Asia and raising my kid in a place that knows about competition and how to maintain a consumer economy, rather than the winner takes all economy.
