You Know You’re an Engineer If … It’s National Engineers Week

My favorites involve numbers -- calculus and the number 42. Also, check out the notes about boiling spaghetti and circuit breakers. Finally, tell us the names of your pets (you'll see why when you view the slideshow below).

Use the comments section below to add your own signs that you’re an engineer.
