Engineer as a Designer of the Human Body Three engineering students were gathered together discussing the possible designers of the human body. One said, ``It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints.'' Another said, ``No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous systems many thousands of electrical connections.'' The last said, ``Actually it was a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?'' hahahah Thanks, http://www.zuneauto.com

Mechanical engineers make weapons, Civil engineers make targets :)

An electrical engineering student was asked a question by the professor during viva-voce exam: Professor: "What would happen to a bird if it lands on one wire of a 33KV AC transmission line?" Student said confidently: "It will fly away." Professor: "Why do you think so?" Student: "Because, the red blood cells contains iron, which will start to circulate in the bird's blood along the electro-magnetic field around the 33KV AC line...hence the bird will feel dizziness...hence it will fly away."

OK, here another bar joke: A grizzly bear walks into a bar, and orders a drink. The barman looks up from the glass he was drying, looks the grizzly up and down once, and then calmly looks back to his glass, and says: "Sorry but we don't serve bears here". The grizzly is annoyed, growls and pounds his huge paws on the bar. "Grrrrr!....Now look here, I've been out looking for honey all day, and I just want a refreshing drink. There's no law against that is there?" Still wiping the glass, the barman responds "Well that may well be true, but at this bar we have a policy that we don't serve bears, especially bears that are loud and violent." Now the grizzly is really annoyed. He stands up, lets out a huge roar, thrashes his head about and takes a huge bite out of the wooden bar, chews a couple of times and swallows it. He then roars at the top of his lungs "GIVE ME A DRINK NOW!!!" The other patrons are stunned and silent, but the barman just stood there, calmly wiping the glass. Without even looking up, the barman coolly replies: "We don't serve bears here, especially bears that are loud, violent, and take drugs." The bear is livid. "What? Drugs? What do you mean, I'm no drug user!!" The barman looks the bear straight in the eye: "Oh yeah? Well buddy, I saw that bar-bit-you-ate".

OK, here is one I found on the internet, at: http://www.engineeringhumor.com/jokes01.html A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: "Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?" The man below says: "Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field." The balloonist replies: "You must be an engineer." "I am," replies the man, "how did you know?" "Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's no use to anyone." The man below says "Well, you must be in management." "I am" replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?" "Well," says the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault."

Ooh, I found a great one: A man was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said: "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said: "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week." The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket. The frog then cried out: "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you and do anything you want." Again the man took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the frog asked: "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?" The man said, "Look I'm a software engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool."

Mid-February, President Obama signed a new FAA re-authorization bill that allows the use of drones into commercial U.S. skies. Here, Robert Dewar, AdaCore’s CEO, explains that it’s time to take security seriously and to let people know that the technology to do this currently exists.
This is not fiction. Flying cars are moving closer to reality.
The new FAA bill paves the way for use of UAVs into commercial US skies, opening up new market opportunities for technology vendors that now operate in the government and defense industry.
The deadline is fast approaching for submissions for three conferences to be held in Boston in September. ESC, the Android Summit and DesignMED will all form part of DESIGN East.
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have built flying quadrotors, small, agile robots that swarm, sense each other, and form ad hoc teams – for construction, surveying disasters and far more.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
