"I recently heard comments from friends about how engineers chop vegetables uniformly when they're preparing food. I think it has to do with attention to detail."

Professional chefs tend to do this too I believe, in order to ensure that the various pieces cook evenly.

I recently heard comments from friends about how engineers chop vegetables uniformly when they're preparing food. I think it has to do with attention to detail.

I wonder if RF engineers chop logarithmically?

@The Profit: While I don't have a piece of paper on the wall to prove it, I think I have some of the identifying features of an engineer as illustrated by the story I've told.

You have my vote LOL

After seeing a clumsy bilingual sushi joke on social media, I took a moment to compose a brutally clever two word bilingual retort that cuts to the heart of bilingual sushi humor suggesting both "hello" and "that's not a sushi roll in my pocket, I AM happy sushimi".


Firstly, two words is the minimum required for a true bilingual retort which satisfies my taste for brevity.


Secondly, said aloud my two word retort sounds like a common Japanese phrase which I've heard hundreds of times.

Thirdly, like an Onion and Shreck my joke has layers despite its brevity.


Lastly it evidently went completely over the head of everyone reading it or else it just wasn't funny.

While I don't have a piece of paper on the wall to prove it, I think I have some of the identifying features of an engineer as illustrated by the story I've told.


My retort: Hi, hai.

 

p.s. I have also attempted diode humor: heard in the next cubicle "these diodes hate me", my response "you must be reverse biased".

Why would anyone slice pancakes any other way?  Seriously.

I'm sorry LOL

My son is a graphics hardware validation driver developer at Intel. When he eats pancakes, he slices them very perfectly in one direction, then he slices them in the opposite direction. At the end of this, he has perfectly square (almost) pancakes to eat. He does this every time.

@Betajet: This saves 2-3 words.

I wish I'd just said "one of the unwashed masses" now LOL

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
