Design Choices


“The first thing you’ve got to remember is that it’s your client’s money you’re spending. Your goal is to achieve the best results by following their wishes. If they want you to build a house upside down standing on its chimney, it’s up to you to do it. “- Richard Morris Hunt, founding member of the American Institute¬†Architects

Engineers in Hell

An engineer dies and reports to hell. Pretty soon, the engineer becomes dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a while, they’ve got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.

One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer: “So, how’s it going down there in hell?”

Satan replies: “Hey things are going great. We’ve got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there’s no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next.”

Satan says: “No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I’m keeping him.”

God says: “Send him back up here or I’ll sue.”

Satan laughs uproariously and answers: “Yeah, right! And just where are you going to get a lawyer?”

Engineers and Women

Two engineering students were walking across campus when one said, “Where did you get such a great bike?”

The second engineer nodded approvingly, “Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn’t have fit.”
