Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

This combined with the Standing Rock shitshow made for a really depressing morning.

Wow. That's essentially using government position to harass or bully citizens, and I hope he gets the ACLU involved.

I get he's not a traffic engineer and all and to work on government systems you need to be licensed, but he sent it to the state engineers and was like "hey look at this" so they could work on it.

If he was wrong they could tell him he was wrong.  It's not like he was hacking the lights to fix the problem.

Another forum says he sent it to the wrong place, these folks aren't even in charge of transportation, but they are in charge of licensing.  Huh.

OH MY GOD

I got into a huge and profoundly stupid argument yesterday, with several people, over whether engineers are scientists or not. Me: Science is a process of discovery. Engineers can do science, but engineering is applied science rather than discovery.
Them: Y U SO ELITIST MY HOLE FAMILY IS ENGINEERS AND THEM SCINECE!!!!!!!!

Clearly, none of these people were themselves engineers, or they would have known the fucking difference between discovery and applied science. Doctors, for example; applied science. This is not an insult and I have no idea why anyone would consider it one.

You don't think it's that whole PhD nomenclature, is it?  "I'm an engineer with a PhD, so call me Dr."

I'm pretty sure you were dealing with idiots; I wanted to add this because I'm currently dealing with people who can't understand why you shouldn't call two different processes in a workflow the same thing. 

"They can't both be called 'final acceptance letters' and expect the system to know the difference!"

I don't think so. I think that it's mostly just that people really don't understand the difference between science as a process, and science as a product, and for some reason have this idea that scientists are high-falutin', so they take it as some kind of a put-down if you say that engineers aren't scientists, even though it's no more of a putdown than it is to say that scientists aren't medical doctors.

When I was working in the Edubusiness my department [Behavioural Sciences] shared a building with the school of engineering. Let me share my anthropological expertise with you; a lot of engineers are dumber than the materials they manipulate. Especially the professors
Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They dont fall out of the sky. They dont pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. Its what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, youre going to get selfish, ignorant leaders.     St George Carlin
