Slow day so…

… here is a bit of engineer fun, from Critical Section, an interesting blog by software engineer (?) Ole Eichhorn:

Some crucial engineering equivalences:

  • If something is physically impossible, then it is really hard.

  • If something is possible but you don’t know how to do it, then it is hard. Even if, once you knew how to do it, it wouldn’t take much time or work.
  • If you know how to do something, it is easy. Even if it takes a long time and requires lots of work.
  • If you know how to do something and it won’t take long, then it is done.


    Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet.
