A surgeon, a civil engineer and a software engineer were chatting at a bar. The discussion rolled around to whose profession was the oldest. The surgeon said that his was, since in the book of Genesis, God created Eve from one of Adam's ribs, and surely that involved surgery. The civil engineer countered by saying that before God created man, he created the heavens and the earth from chaos, surely a feat of civil engineering. The software engineer just smiled and said: "Where do you think the chaos came from?". Anyone else knows jokes on IT? Erik Dark

A mechanical, electrical and Microsoft engineer are taking a road trip together until the car's engine mysteriously cuts out, and they pull off to the shoulder. The mechanical engineer speaks up first. "That sound you heard just before the engine died is a distinctive one. It's made when a water pump starts cavitating on boiling water, causing a trip valve in the radiator to drop pressure, in turn causing the engine to die out to avoid overheating. We can wait here for an hour while the water cools, after which I reset those triggers and we'll go on from here." "That is indeed a pretty explanation," replied the electrical engineer, "but I'm not wasting an hour of my time on water to cool on a spurious condition. It's cool enough outside that there's no reason for the water to boil to begin with. It is undoubtedly a faulty thermostat on the engine that's triggered the shutdown. I've got a soldering gun in the back that I can use to reroute the trouble circuit -- we'll be back on the road in 20 minutes." The Microsoft engineer pipes up: "Well I don't know about you two wanting to dawdle all day and fix stuff, but I need to get somewhere today. We can be on our way in about 4 minutes; all I have to do is roll the windows down and back up, and the car will be like new." [ February 21, 2002: Message edited by: Michael Ernest ]
