I made more money as an intern than I did my first "real" job.  Try interning in engineering.

Q. How do you tell if an engineer is extroverted?
A. He looks at your shoes instead of his own.

Betimes I wish I had been named a name like Florian or something like that. I wonder why my parents didn't think of that?

Assuming the story about schoolyard bullying/name-calling/whatever isn't a complete fiction, is the solution really to teach the kid that the way to respond to small-minded comments from others is to indiscriminately seek affirmations of your physical beauty from as many random strangers as possible? Honestly, it creeps me out a little bit.

I don't get the whole "everybody is beautiful" validation thing. It's untrue. We're evolutionary programmed to respond to certain things, and while there are some variations in how we react, some people are indeed more physically attractive than others. The thing to teach kids is not that everyone is beautiful- which even 5 year olds know is bullshit. You need to teach them that not everybody is attractive, that it's okay to be unattractive, that you shouldn't draw your worth from your physical appearance. Show them a picture of Janet Yellen- she is not, and never has been an attractive woman, but she worked and studied hard, and became one of the most powerful people on the planet by using her brain. Tell them that even the most beautiful people usually turn ugly as they get old, and that they need to stay in school so they can get a job where attractiveness is irrelevant. Don't validate, empower.

Last time I heard that joke, I laughed so hard that I fell off my dinosaur.

Dang.  As a recovering engineer, I still laugh every time I hear it.

Two engineers were discussing their day.

Engineer 1: I was walking through the park when a beautiful woman rides up to me on a bike. She dismounts, throws off her clothes and says "Take what you want!"

Engineer 2: What did you do?

Engineer 1: I took the bike.

Engineer 2: Good choice, I dont think her clothes would have fit you.

when did nostalgia become a thing? it seems like all we do culturally is pine backwards. the most anticipated movie of the year is fucking Star Wars (and before that 007)...

 

did postwar americans pine for the good old days of the Great Depression? in the Renaissance did they pine for the plague? or are we just super unimaginative pessimistic assholes?
