Elizabeth, so you are saying engineers are all funny looking? I have been an engineer for over 40 years! I resent that! Let me go look in the mirror.......

Oh. I see. OK.

This does explain my lack of photo on my posts.....


And all the pointing and laughter. All these years explained in a moment...

Perhaps you could make a list of the most influential people in engineering who were not, in fact, engineers. I suggest that the list should start with Scott Adams (maybe the Wright borthers would be on it, too, and Chuck Yeager)

So nice to see Ellen's smiling face in there.  We went to SDSU together.  On top of being blazingly smart, she is a very talented musician!

Mr. Bean! Yes, he definitely has the look of an engineer, you're right, Rob. But I would think he would have historically acted a bit more clever considering his background. Thanks for another fun slideshow, Chuck!

Rob, my persdonal favorite is George Halas. Halas, the founder of trhe NFL, was an amazingly accomplished man. Who would have thought he was also an engineer?

The first list was more interesting for me than this one.  Growing up in the 80's, it was obvious that astronauts were engineers.  For an older generation, it was obvious that astronauts started as air force pilots. 

Lists are nice but analysis is always appreciated.  Holding 80 patents is a clear application of engineering skills for Lonnie Johnson but did Schwarzkopf ever apply "engineering thinking" in his career?

Nice slide show, Chuck. Many of these are not surprising, especially all of those involved in the space program. The one that really hits it out of the park is Mr. Bean. Come to think of it, he looks like an engineer. Plus, I gotta see The Unauthorized Life.

Latest Analysis
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
Get your Allman Brothers albums ready. The iconic Volkswagen Microbus may be poised for a comeback, and this time it could be electric.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
