Been there, done that...great joint!
In fact, it's impossible to go hungry on the island...so many great restaurants & joints all over the place

Wow Herk. It's true if you look near the beginning of this thread. What goes around does come back around. By the way one of my sons favorite sayings is: Mechanical engineers build bombs because civil engineers build targets. Old Guys (Brian and Joanne) p.s. Sorry I missed meeting you at Goshen. Maybe next time.

Difference between a male engineer and a male physicist:

Each are asked the same question: A female is across the room from you. If you can only move toward her at half the distance left after each move, how long will it take you to reach her?

The physicist said.. You would never reach her.
The engineer said... You would get close enough.

My brother, who is an engineer, tells this joke but with a male engineer & male mathematician. They are told that they can take turns walking toward the woman; each time they can go half the remaining distance. The mathematician doesn't even try, saying that you can't halve any number and get zero, therefore he can never reach her. The engineer starts walking, saying maybe he can't reach her, but he can get close enough for practical purposes. LOL!

Inside each engineer is a frustrated teacher just dying to get out. That's why my wife tells friends to just let me fix things, and not ask me what I did or even worse... why.

She calls me a pathological compulsive fixer. She says I cannot see anything not working properly without itching to fix it. I denied her claims, of course. But my case was lost when she reminded me that I once went out to the car to retrieve a screwdriver so I could properly adjust the automatic door closer at an IHOP once.

In my defense... the stupid door was slamming each time it closed and it was driving me nuts...

In my 34 year engineering career, I have to agree with "Understanding Engineers." We are a different breed, but we make good house pets. And I fixed the hydraulic slide-out on our new RV without recourse to the dealer. My neighbor thought that was pretty cool.

Cowracer... your wife is a lucky woman to have a pathological compulsive fixer.
Wish I had one...but alas.. I have a pilot.
(Who hires pathological compulsive fixers to fix out stuff! :O )

Hey - I have nothing against engineers. In fact I think that every RV owner should have one.
