You Might Be An Engineer If...


I just read this from a website while browsing and searching online for some Engineering stuff for work, so I decided to (Push) post this also on this blog since I am working with some Engineers at the office. I am not an Engineer, I only finished the first 2 years of my Engineering course in college and decided to shift/enroll to Information Technology because I can't stand solving Mathematical Equation without understanding why they (instructors) keep finding for their eX's (Example. Find x in the following equations: x - 4 = 10) When in fact, we don't really care what happened to their lovelife. Sometimes Y, or Z, A, B, C, D and other letters and raises their powers like (x raise to the power of 2). Huh? I can think of Superman, Batman, The X-men members and other superheroes with RAISED POWERS are one of their eX's. I don't care where their  eX's are but they just keep asking us (Students) how to find their X. And how can you add X and Y and the answer is a f*cking number? Or solving the distance between A and B to find out C?

I thought math is all about numbers but they are always preoccupied with those letters. I was having brain hemorrhage during those years so I better quit Engineering on my 2nd year in College and shifted to a more complicated one... Information Technology where number 2 is 0010, 4 is 0100 8 is 1000 and so on... And then I thought Info Tech is a study about Computers but then why we have so many languages to learn? I am struggling with my English Language, that is why I didn't bother taking up Language courses in the Arts Department. But then in my IT classes where ancient language like Assembly Language, COBOL, Fortran and all sorts of those what they called Programming Languages are the major ones, OMG what country are these languages are spoken?! Then Turbo Pascal,  C++, Python, Visual Basic, Java, PHP and an endless list of Languages to learn. I'd rather study Filipino language and all sorts of dialects around the Philippines or better yet took up Masters in Visayan Language. Fortunately, I graduated BSIT with NOSEBLEED not HONORS of all those languages we tried to learn through the years of college life.

Anyway, this is for the Engineers and Engineers wannabe's and those BS-M.E. (Murag Engineers)
