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.
