A Little Engineering Humor

A quick reflection on what we have to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, and a healthy dose of humor to go with it.

At least they reached a compromise!

Sometimes, our life can feel as messy as the poorly-designed bridge depicted in the cartoon above (I found it in the midst of a project folder I was scanning). Yet with the Thanksgiving holiday weekend nearly upon us, it is a good time to take a step back from our work to see the big picture. Why do we design projects, attend meetings, and work with clients?
