Hey I just wanted to ask your advice because i'm crushing on this guy who is a mechanical engineer and who I've sort of known for a while. He sort of gives me the "i like you" vibe back but I can't tell. Plus he's incredibly smart and I am just not on his level so I don't know if he thinks I'm stupid because I listen to what he says and I'm interested but I don't want him to push me into the friend zone because I'm not in his major. Also we go to the same university.
TALK TO HIM
Seriously, just go get a coffee some time and tell him you think he’s cute. Try not to overthink things, because the “he’s incredibly smart and I am just not on his level" just sounds like it’s all in your head. Don’t worry and just say how you feel. We’re only people, too.
I haven’t really posted for a while so here’s an update. I’m currently on a 12 month student placement at an automotive company, working in their quality steering department. Without going into the boring details, it’s pretty good employment and business experience and my position has good integration with the assembly line, but really the job is boring as fuck. Also, exams didn’t go well this year and I’m pretty sick of uni but oh well. Best of luck to all you people slaving away to get a career in engineering as well, we’ll get there!
A physicist, a mathematician and an engineer stay in a hotel.
The engineer is awakened by a smell and gets up to check it. He finds a fire in the hallway, sees a nearby fire extinguisher and after extinguishing it, goes back to bed.
Later that night, the physicist gets up, again because of the smell of fire. He quickly gets up and sees the fire in the hallway. After calculating air pressure, flame temperature and humidity as well as distance to the fire and projected trajectory, he extinguishes the fire with the least amount of fluid.
At last, the mathematician awakes, only again to find a fire in the hallway. He instantly sees the extinguisher and thinks, “A solution exists!”, and heads back into his room.
I’m re-watching the documentary “Battle of the X-Planes” and they’re talking about this new revolutionary material made of resin and carbon fiber and they’re calling it “thermoplastics.” I can’t help but laugh because anyone with any sort of knowledge of materials knows what a thermoplastic is and that what they’re talking about is a composite.
You’ve probably heard that 3-D printing is going to save U.S. manufacturing. All those “makers” say it, even President Obama has chimed in of late. So it wasn’t too surprising at the recent SXSW gathering to see 3-D printers busy cranking out doodads under the big tops of television networks and tech companies. You stood in line for a taco, you watched a link of plastic parts slowly emerge from a nearby machine.
Sure, a 3-D printed car is cool, but it doesn’t go to space. And there’s probably a good reason for that, but now a competition is aiming to launch the newest manufacturing fad into the final frontier by challenging people to design 3-D printed rocket engines.
How do cars work? I hope to teach you through this channel! For the automotive engineer in all of us. And it helps to know how your car works, before trying to fix it, right? I hope you can learn something from me!
