  Favourite one is when we presented a letter of engagement with the client and he was able to disect the letter with 15 comments that he wanted clarification on (some which were valid points).   Be sure to brush up on definitions of alpa, beta, correlation coefficient and keep notes on every conversation, they are!

OK, Ferris, how do you go from reading about Pam Anderson back to engineers?  The two topics couldn’t be farther apart.  Unless you’re trying to figure out how the doctors got those things to stand out like that without some sort of structural support.
