    True, in real life, but not on engineering exams. In real life,
    engineers are pessimists, and add in generous safety margins to help
    them sleep at night. In exams, the problems usually didn't deal with
    safety margins, but rather with exact answers to stress questions, such
    as how many pounds of tension is in stress member A-B.

    If you slipped a decimal point, even a 3 - 6x safety factor won't help!

  2. Ancient historical facts (an ancient etemology degree here?) have
    nothing to do with the issue at hand.

    Toss that over your left shoulder! ;-)
  3. Did you mean "etymology" or "entomology (or maybe "etiology")?
    I think I'd rather work on some enology. Mulled, that is.

    YIKES! That's the sort of word you really don't want to ... mispell.

    BTW, before anyone pops their cork, the last word is a *JOKE*

    Yeah, you'll have that. That was actually my first choice. My
    spell checker didn't like any of the above. I went to the web
    and it was no help (actually found ete*). Being pooped, I simply
    let it fly and went to bed.
    Your choice. Just don't walk under a ladder or break a mirror!
