    Understanding Engineers - Take Four

    What is the difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers?
    Mechanical Engineers- build weapons

    Civil Engineers -build targets.

    Thats true, but it's Aerospace engineers that build the weapons :D

    Given the morning I've had and the environment in which I work, I needed some good engineering jokes :lol: Thanx


    Also,

    How can you tell if an engineer is extroverted?

    He/she stares at your shoes when they talk to you.

    There are three engineers in a car: an electrical engineer, a chemical engineer and a software engineer. Suddenly the car just stops by the side of the road, and the three engineers look at each other wondering what could be wrong.

    The electrical engineer suggests stripping down the electronics of the car and trying to trace where a fault might have occurred.

    The chemical engineer, not knowing much about cars, suggests that maybe the fuel is becoming emulsified and getting blocked somewhere.

    Then, the software engineer, not knowing much about anything, comes up with a suggestion, "Why don't we close all the windows, get out, get back in, open the windows again, and maybe it'll work?"

    From my father-in-law (aeronautical engineer)....

    during the French revolution.

    A doctor is led to the guillotine and his head is
    placed in the slot. The trigger is pulled but the
    blade screeches to a stop half way down. A
    pronouncement is made that the man must be innocent
    and he goes free.

    A lawyer is led to the guillotine and his head is
    placed in the slot. The trigger is pulled but the
    blade screeches to a stop half way down. A
    pronouncement is made that the man must be innocent
    and he goes free.

    An engineer is led to the guillotine and his head is
    placed in the slot. He looks up and says "wait a
    minute, I think I see your problem".
