Why Engineers are The Best by webcalculator(m): 8:06pm On Jan 20, 2013
A manager decided to take a hot air balloon up without really
knowing how. He hits a fog bank and can't tell where he is or direction he's going. He lets the balloon down and at a bout 30
feet from the ground he sees a man fishing by a stream. He yells to the man, "Can you tell me where I am!" The man
fishing looks up and says, "You are in a hot air balloon about
30 feet in the air over a stream."

The manager sighs and yells, "You must be an engineer!" The
man fishing says, "Yes, I am. How did you know?" The
manager replies, "Because what you've told me is technically
correct, but it's of no use to me whatsoever!"
The man fishing yells back, "You must be a manager!" The manager, impressed, yells, "Yes, I am! But how did you know
The engineer looks up with a smile and says, "Because you don't know where you are, you don't know how you got
here, you have no technical skills to get yourself out of your situation, but somehow it's my fault now."

A mathematician, an engineer, and a physicist are being interviewed for a job. In each case, the interview goes along
until the last question is asked: "How much is one plus one?"

Each of them suspects a trap, and is hesitant to answer. The mathematician thinks for a moment, and says "I'm not sure, but I think it converges". The physicist says "I'm not sure, but I
think it's on the order of one" The engineer gets up, closes the door to the office, and says "How much do you want it to be?"

Three engineers and three
accountants are traveling by
train to a conference. At the
station, thethree accountants
each buy a ticket and watch as
the three engineers only buy one ticket.
"How are three people going to
travel on only one ticket?" asks
an accountant.
"Watch and you'll see,"
answered an engineer. They all board the train. The
accountants take their
respective seats but all three
engineers cram into a restroom
and close the door behind them.
Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes
around collecting tickets. He
knocks on the restroom door and
says,"Tickets, please!" The door
opens just a crack and a single
arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and
moves on.
The accountants see this and
agree it is a clever idea. So after
the conference, the
accountants decide to copy the engineers on the return trip
save some money.
When they get to the station,
they buy one ticket for the
return trip. To their
astonishment, the engineers don't buy a ticket at all.
"How are you going to travel
without a ticket?" says one
perplexed accountant.
"Watch and you'll see,"
answered an engineer. When they board the train all
three accountants cram into a
restroom and the three
engineers cram into another one
nearby. The train departs.
Shortly afterwards, one of the engineers leaves his restroom
and walks over to the restroom
where the accountants are
hiding. He knocks on the door and
says, "Tickets, please!"
You can now complete the story!! :-P :-D
