Are you?

For all my geeky friends (and much of my family)… 

How to determine if you are an engineer:

  • The only jokes you receive are through email (OUCH)
  • At Christmas, it goes without saying that you will be the one to find the burnt-out bulb in the string of Christmas lights.
  • Buying flowers for your girlfriend/boyfriend or spending the money to upgrade your RAM is a moral dilemma
  • If you find that you have to often explain how to use the gifts you have given other people.
  • Everyone else on the Alaskan Cruise is on deck peering at the scenery, and you are still on a personal tour of the engine room
  • In college, you thought Spring Break was metal fatigue failure
  • The Salespeople at Circuit City can't answer any of your questions
  • You are always late to meetings
  • You are at an air show and know how fast the skydivers are falling
  • You are next in line on death row in a French Prison and you find that the guillotine is not working properly, so you offer to fix it.
  • You bought your wife/husband a new CD ROM drive for her birthday
  • You forget to get a haircut (for 6 months!)
  • You can quote scenes from any Monty Python movie
  • You can type 70 words per minute but can't read your own handwriting

  • You have ever saved the power cord from a broken appliance
  • You have more friends on the internet than in real life

  • You still own a slide rule and you know how to use it
  • You think a pocket protector is a fashion accessory
  • You think that when people around you yawn, it's because they didn't get enough sleep
  • You wear black socks with white tennis shoes (or vice versa)
  • You window shop at Radio Shack
  • You're in the backseat of your car, she/he is looking wistfully at the moon, and you're trying to locate a geosynchronous satellite
