Psalm of an Engineer - Revised Version

Verily, I say unto ye,

marry not an engineer.

For an engineer is a strange being

and possessed of many evils.

Yea, he speaketh always in parables

which he calleth formulae.

He wieldeth a big stick

which he calleth a slide rule.

And he hath only one bible,

a handbook.

He thinketh only of strains and stresses,

and without end of thermodynamics.

He showeth always a serious aspect

and seemeth not to know how to smile.

He picketh his seat in a car by the springs thereof

and not by the damsels.

Neither does he know a waterfall

except by its horsepower,

Nor a sunset

except that he must turn on the light,

Nor a damsel

except by her weight.

Always he carrieth his books with him,

and he entertaineth his sweetheart with steam tables.

Verily, though his damsel expecteth chocolates when he calleth,

She openeth the package to discover samples of iron ore.

Yea, he holdeth her hand

but to measure the friction thereof,

and kisseth her

only to test the viscosity of her lips,

for in his eyes shineth a far away look

that is neither love nor longing,

but a vain attempt to recall formulae.

Even as a boy, he pulleth a girl's hair

but to test its elasticity.

But as a man,

he deviseth different devices.

For he counteth the vibrations of her heartstrings

And seeketh ever to pursue his scientific investigations.

Even his own heart flutterings

he counteth as a measure of fluctuation.

And his marriage is but a

simultaneous equation involving two unknowns.

And yielding diverse results.

Verily, I say unto ye,

do not marry an engineer.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
