  1. It begins:
    Baboons Begin Making Coordinated Attacks on Village in Saudi Arabia

    Pity-ful Hu-mans! You will be exterminated!

    (BTW: A friend of mine whose parents were missionaries in Ethiopia once gave me some good advice, hard won by himself: NEVER throw a rock at a baboon. The understand the concept, and they’re damn good at it. They will throw rocks back. So will all their friends. You WILL get hurt.)

  4. We engineers need real reality to design with,
    or stuff goes terribly, terribly wrong

    Even so, we still kept our motto posted:

    Beat to suit, file to fit, paint to hide.

  10. And Doug forgot the classic:

    An Optimist says the glass is half full
    A Pessimist says the glass is half empty
    An Engineer says the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
