    You might be an engineer if:

    Everyone else on the Alaskan Cruise is on deck peering at the scenery, and you are still on a personal tour of the engine room.

    Buying flowers for your girlfriend or spending the money to upgrade your RAM is a moral dilemma.

    You have a habit of destroying things in order to see how they work.

    You can't help eavesdropping in computer stores... and correcting the salesperson.

    You've actually used every single function on your graphing calculator.

    You chuckle whenever anyone says "centrifugal force".

    You have no life - and you can PROVE it mathematically.

    It is sunny and 70 degrees outside, and you are working on a computer.

    You've calculated that the World Series actually diverges.

    You consider ANY non-engineering course "easy".

    The blinking 12:00 on someone's VCR draws you in like a tractor beam to fix it.

    The salesperson at Circuit City can't answer any of your questions.

    You have any "Dilbert" comics displayed in your work area.

    You have never backed up your hard drive.

    You spent more on your calculator than on your wedding ring.

    You are always late to meetings.

    You are at an air show and know how fast the skydivers are falling.

    You can quote scenes from any Monty Python movie.

    You can type 70 words per minute but can't read your own handwriting.

    You can't write unless the paper has both horizontal and vertical lines.

    You comment to your wife that her straight hair is nice and parallel.

    You have ever saved the power cord from a broken appliance.

    You know what http:// stands for.

    You look forward to Christmas only to put together the kids' toys.

    You wear black socks with tennis shoes (or vice versa)

    You window shop at Radio Shack.

    You're in the backseat of your car, she's looking wistfully at the moon, and you're trying
    to locate a geosynchronous satellite.
    Your laptop computer costs more than your car.

    Your wrist watch has more computing power than a 300 MHz Pentium. - Note: They must have meant Pentuim II ;-)

    You know the direction the water swirls when you flush

    You are currently gathering the components to build your own nuclear reactor

    You have a functioning home copier machine, but every toaster you own turns bread into charcoal

    The microphone or visual aids at a meeting don’t work, and you rush up the front to fix it

    You can remember 7 computer passwords but not your anniversary

    You understood more than five of these jokes

    You make a copy of this list, and post it on your door (or your home page !)

    Agreed, Looks like are you a Nerd boy.

    I think one thing i can relate to with engineers is they give you a design. Then just as you've completed it, they change it. Another 60 times.

    I always thought engineers had geekish tendencies. Meh, probably coz I’m studying mechatronics. probably depends on the engineering.

    Bah,

    I design underground sections, then spend another half day underground explaining it to people who can't even write their own names!

    I usually have to change designs due to operator incompetence.

    Oh well.

    Yeah, mechatronics is a mixture of electrical, mechanical and computer systems engineering. Basically robotics.
