"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.

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
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
