Subj:     Engineers On A Train (S118, S618b)
          From: JOELFALLON in 1999

 (See 'The Bushes And Clintons Ride A Train'
  and 'Hiding In The Train Bathroom' in TRAIN)

 An EE/ME engineering convention was being held.  On the
 train to the convention, there were a bunch of electrical
 engineering students and a bunch of mechanical engineering
 students.  Each of the mechanical majors had his or her
 train ticket.  The group of electrical engineers had only
 ONE ticket for all of them.  The ME's started laughing and

 One of the EE's yelled "Here comes the conductor!!" and
 then all of the EE's went into the bathroom.  The ME's
 were baffled (as usual).  The conductor came aboard and
 said "Tickets please!" and got tickets from all the ME's.
 He then went to the bathroom and knocked on the door and
 said "Ticket please..." and the EE's stuck the ticket under
 the door.  The conductor took it and then the electrical
 engineers came out of the bathroom a few minutes later.
 The ME's felt really stupid (rightfully so).

 On the way back from the convention, the group of ME's
 bought only one ticket for the whole bunch.  They started
 snickering at the EE's, for the whole group had no tickets
 amongst them.

 The EE lookout called "Conductor coming!".  All the EE's
 went to one bathroom.  All the ME's went to another bath-
 room.  Before the conductor came on board, one of the EE's
 left the bathroom, knocked on the other bathroom, and said
 "Ticket please!"

 Look at the nervous system - it is the most amazing electric
 system that could only have been developed by an electrical

 The 3rd said that god must have been a civil engineer.  The
 other two looked at him wondering why he would say something
 so silly.  Yeah, said the 3rd, only a civil engineer would

Subj:     Doctor, Chemist, And Engineer To Die (S152)
          From: JOKE-OF-THE-DAY.com on 12/29/1999

 Once upon a time there lived three men: a doctor, a chemist,
 and an engineer.  For some reason all three offended the king
 and were sentenced to die on the same day.

 The day of the execution arrived, and the doctor was led up
 to the guillotine.  As he strapped the doctor to the guillotine,
 the executioner asked, "Head up or head down?"
 "Head up," said the doctor.
 "Blindfold or no blindfold?"
 "No blindfold."
 So the executioner raised the axe, and z-z-z-z-ing!  Down came
 the blade--and stopped barely an inch above the doctor's neck.
 Well, the law stated that if an execution didn't succeed the
 first time the prisoner had to be released, so the doctor was
 set free.

 Then the chemist was led up to the guillotine.  "Head up or
 head down?" said the executioner.
 "Head up," said the chemist.
 "Blindfold or no blindfold?"
 "No blindfold."
 So the executioner raised his axe, and z-z-z-z-ing!  Down came
 the blade--and stopped an inch above the chemist's neck.  Well,
 the law stated that if the execution didn't succeed the first
 time the prisoner had to be released, so the chemist was set free.

 Finally the engineer was led up to the guillotine.  "Head up or
 head down?" asked the executioner.
 "Head up."
 "Blindfold or no blindfold?"
 "No blindfold."
 So the executioner raised his axe, but before he could cut the
 rope, the engineer yelled out, "WAIT! I see what the problem is!"

Subj:     Engineering, Physics And Math Students In A Contest

 An Engineering Student, a Physics Student, and a Mathematics
 student were each given $150 dollars and were told to use
 that money to find out exactly how tall a particular hotel

 All three ran off, extremely keen on how to do this.  The
 Physics student went out, purchased some stopwatches, a
 number of ball bearings, a calculator, and some friends.
 He had them all time the drop of ball bearings from the roof,
 and he then figured out the height from the time it took for
 the bearings to accelerate from rest until they impacted
 with the sidewalk.

 The Math student waited until the sun was going down, then
 she took out her protractor, plumb line, measuring tape,and
 scratch pad, measured the length of the shadow, found the
 angle the buildings roof made from the ground, and used
 trignometry to figure out the height of the building.

 These two students bumped into the Engineering student the
 next day, who was nursing a really bad hangover.  When
 asked what he did to find the height of the building he
 replied: "Well, I walked up to the bell hop, gave him 10
 bucks, asked him how tall the hotel was, and hit the bar
 inside for happy hour!"

Subj:     Bridge-Tunnel Picture (S429b)
          From: LABLaughsClean in 2005
 Source: (Removed from lablaughs.com)
 The  bridge (or should it be called tunnel) goes under water
 to allow movement of  ships.  In order  for ships to pass,
 this bridge is half under the water. You drive down in the
 water and then come out on the other side. Truly a marvelous
 piece of  engineering!  This bridge is the Monitor-Merrimac
 Memorial Bridge-Tunnel in Virginia, at the James River.
 I want to thank MikeChristo@BellSouth.net for correcting

Subj:     Electronic Engineer's Girlfriend (S22)
          From: Vegas Jokes Archive in 1997

 Yesterday afternoon my girlfriend and I had lunch together.
 Afterward, she accompanied me back to work. I thought this
 slightly unusual, since she had never before expressed in
 interest in my work (electronic engineering), but it didn't
 occur to me that she had something planned.

 We arrived at my workbench, where I currently trying to
 figure why the board on which I am working is not performing
 the way it is designed. "Is this where you work?" she asked.

 "At the moment," I replied.

 I reached over to turn on the scope, thereby completely
 failing to notice the huge black studded collar she had
 produced from her purse.  Before I could blink (it's amazing
 the speed at which she can do this), she had locked the
 collar snugly around my neck, and locked the end of the
 6 foot jack chain to the center of the bench (where there
 just happened to be a mounting hole).  I turned to her in
 utter disbelief, mouth agape.

 "I'll be back for you at five," she said.

 "HAVE YOU GONE COMPLETELY WACKO!??!?!", I yelled in a
 hushed voice.  "How am I going to explain this!?!?!"

 "You'll think of something", she said, "you always do".

 "But suppose I have to go to the bathroom", I countered.

 "Don't give me that", she hissed, "I've seen you go a
 whole day without visiting the bathroom"

 "But....," I tried to say.

 "SHHH!  The subject is closed. I'll be back at five.  Bye"

 She turned around and left, against my hushed protests. I
 sat in panic and tried to think out my situation.  I tried
 to think of who might visit.

 Most of my co-workers were friends who knew that my girl-
 friend and I were a bit odd, so this shouldn't surprise
 them.  But I had *no* idea what I was going to do if one
 of my bosses came in.  I checked my watch to see how long
 I would have to endure this ignominy. 13:30  (I'm a
 military time weenie).

 "Three and a half hours," I thought.  I heaved a heavy
 sigh, and got to work, such as I could.  As it happened,
 three of my co-workers visited for what-not.  All of them
 immediately noticed the collar (it would be hard not to)
 and asked if it was my girlfriend's idea.  I said yes.

 They asked what I would do if my supervisor saw it.  I
 told them I hadn't the faintest idea.

 One of the aforementioned colleagues took the bench next
 to me, and after a few remarks (and a question as to
 where he could get such a collar), settled down to work
 in silence.

 After some time, I checked my watch. 16:40. "Gee, I just
 might make it through this after all," I thought.  I was
 even beginning to get a handle on the problem with the
 board on which I was working.  Murphy must have been
 standing right behind me, reading my thoughts, for not
 two minutes later one of my bosses entered the room.  And
 not just any boss.  Noooooooo.  This was Mr. Narrowminded
 himself.  This was the guy who took Lifespring *and* became
 a born-again fundamentalist.  How he came to have the power
 of hire-and-fire over us is one of the Great Mysteries of
 The Universe. We avoided this guy at all costs.

 His eyes fell upon me immediately.  A few picoseconds later,
 he saw the collar around my neck in all it's splendor. "My
 life is over," I thought.

 I still hadn't thought of a plausible explanation for this.
 Mr Solderbrain (the name we called him behind his back; a
 corruption of his real name) started to walk slowly and
 deliberately over to me, his eyes fixed on the collar.
 Fifteen agonizing seconds later, he was standing next to me.
 I thought the guy sitting next to me was going to have
 seizures stifling all his giggles. I continued to work,
 acting as though there were nothing the least bit unusual
 about my predicament.

 Finally, he spoke.

 "What. the. HELL! is. THAT!?!?!" he said.

 I don't know how I thought of what I said.  In fact, I'm
 pretty sure I didn't know what I was going to say until
 I was saying it.  I'm even more amazed that Solderbrain
 actually bought it and didn't fire me on the spot.

 I turned to face him calmly, with total nonchalance,
 exuding complete confidence in what I was about to say,
 even though I didn't know what it was yet.  I didn't
 even miss a beat.

 "Grounding strap," I said, and returned to work.

 The guy next to me fell off his chair and nearly died

Subj:     Marry Not An Engineer
          From: Amy's Humor Archive on 06/27/97
 (Purchased on a scroll during the 1970's. According to the
 scroll, this is reprinted from the March 1943 Tau Beta Pi
 COUNCIL Bulletin and the original source is unknown.  As
 you can see, it is a bit dated.)
                          THE ENGINEER
 Verily, I say unto you, marry not an engineer for the
 engineer is a strange being possessed of many devils; yea,
 he speaketh eternally in parables, which he calleth
 "formulas", and he wieldeth a big stick which he calleth
 a slide rule, and he hath but one Bible-- a handbook.

 He talketh always of stresses and strains, and without
 end of Thermodynamics.  He showeth always a serious aspect
 and seemeth not to know how to smile; and he picketh his
 seat in the car by the springs therein and not by the
 damsel beside him; neither does he know a waterfall except
 for its power, nor the sunset except for her specific heat.

 Always he carieth his books with him, and he entertaineth
 his maiden with steam tables.  Verily though his damsel
 expecteth chocolates, when he calleth he openeth the pack-
 ages to disclose samples of iron.

 Yea, he holdeth his damsel's hand, but only to measure the
 friction, and kisses but to test viscosity.  For in his
 eyes shineth a faraway look which is neither love nor
 longing -- but a vain attempt to recall a formula.

 There is but one key dear to his heart, and that is the
 Tau Beta Pi key; and one love letter for which he yearneth,
 and that an "A"; and when to his damsel he writeth of love
 and signeth with crosses, mistake not these symbols for
 kisses but rather for unknown quantities.

 Even as a young boy he pulleth a girl's hair to test its
 elasticity, but as a man he discovers different devices;
 for he would count the vibrations of her heart strings
 and reckon her strength of materials; for he seeketh
 ever to pursue the scientific investivations, and
 inscribeth his passion in a formula; and his marriage is
 a simultaneous equation involving unkunknowns and yielding
 diverse answers.

          From: Amy's Humor Archive in 1997

 Let's Talk Benefits:
 Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources

 what starting salary were you looking for?"

 The Engineer said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year,
 depending on the benefit's package."

 The HR Person said, "Well, what would you say to a package
 of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and
 dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary,
