    Are both aerospace engineers.
    Too bad the Super Bowl isn’t decided by the ability to solve differential equations. That 7th Lombardi would be a lot closer.

    I hear you AFan - looks like a few people stumbled with higher math. Although I've been a licensed Civil Engineer for 45 years, I've never once had to use differential equations or integrals since college math. Once we buried our slide rules in the 70's, all these other math enigmas were rendered practically meaningless. :hmm:

    Ive been a Chem Eng for 40yrs. Most of it spent doing process simulation. And even though i dealt with computer models with tens of thousands of equations, they rarely involved calculus. But I did start out learning to use a slide rule. Got a programmable TI calculator when I was a jr in college, at the time it was as high tech as a college student could get.

    And just think our coach cant figure out when to call a time out or the right time for a challenge flag.

    As a long time engineer, I'd use that thing to level the table up so my train doesn't derail. :hehehe::cool:

    Hi BigBenHotness imposter,

    Do you think Tomlin needs to have a slide rule to figure out time outs and challenges? Will he be able to balance the popcorn?

    I'm an Aerospace Engineer. They should pick a different profession. Seriously just do it. 30+ years doesn't get ya very far. Promised my wife when I first met her I'd take her to the Virgin Islands. Unfortunately she's still waiting 24 years later.

    They hire these guys so they can tell us what Mike Tomlin is really saying.

    I am a chemical engineer. True story. I manage a fully legal, fully licensed cannabis processing lab in Oregon. Molecular fractioning all day long. Did I mention that stress is not part of my life?

    Retired now but spent thirty eight years as a mechanical engineer for an electronics company.
    Glad to be retired and watching Steeler playoffs

    I’ve been there. They aren’t the Virgin Islands anymore.

    :smiley1:

    Ok, I just made that BS up, but it felt good.

    I work for an aerospace company 23 years and counting. I'm just a lead man/ die setter.
    They always send me the young new aerospace engineers and what not. You'd be surprised, most can't read a tape measure, tell me a fraction to decimal.
    My father is a retired manufacturing engineer and can pretty much do anything known to man. Concrete, build engines, construct sheds, electric, plumbing, cars, drywall.
    A true engineer knows how to use their hands as well as their brains.
    My opening line for all the young recruits I get. " Even janitors are called, custodial engineers."
    Mad respect for the old timers. The youthful engineers, I feel sorry for you. No life skills, whatsoever for the most part.

    Great thread. I sorta did a 360. I got a bachelors and masters in Mech Eng (Masters all paid by Duracell and for me it was easier than the BS) and my prof wanted to sponsor me or whatever they call it to do the PHD but unless you want to become a prof ...the companies around here (UTC would take Phs in the R & D) the PHDs were like blacklisted.

    I ended up going into more of an Industrial/Process/Mfg route and because of turning 50 I ended up going back in to design work with 3D CAD, etc.

    Im scared of these young guys tbh regardless of experience...the bean counters dont quantify value in that. lol

    The Engineers that report to me are the Gen x/Millennial types and my boss tries to make them be the way of coming in and leaving right on time and having lunch right on time.

    Needless to say...esp with Covid..I had to explain to him that we will begin losing Engineers and we did to UTC which I think is now Raytheon.

    Some of these kids could run circles around me and others need to be directed 247.

    My boss likes to break stones about cell phones...the kid then gets a note from the doctor about IBS symptoms so he is on the can as long as he needs.

    I always joke about Josh being treated like royalty by Kim as he designs Rockets but that one that goes two feet. Gulp.

    I keep thinkin if the dude can derive Nuclear Fusion equations maybe just maybe he could run the RPO with these WRs like a poor mans run and shoot.

    I think Fitzpatrick is Ivy League too.

    Slide Rule? I didnt google and cheat. lol

    My boss said they used to have punch cards for Fortran. That must have sucked. lol

    What sucked was when you are standing in line at the card reader with a 12” stack of cards, and you drop them.

    Good stuff. I hated Fortran. I spent 10 hours to find it didnt run because of a stupid syntax error....I missed a period or whatever. lol

    I punched cards too. And wrote miles of FORTRAN during ‘80 and early ‘90s. I tell the young guys that FORTRAN was a “real man’s” programming language. I’d cringe when I’d see it programmed in lower case.

    I was a freshman in college, taking a first programming course. The card reader at the time literally moved the cards 15’ from start to finish. I never understood why you needed to move them so far to get them past the light source that read them. The damn cards would get jammed in the machine, and they’d pull dozens of mangled cards out of it. You’d have to repunch them again.
