engineers are my heroes

like that. Says it all. I could replace the pray-ers with a group of gossiping women, a group of politicians debating about minutae, and… well.. even us, sitting behind our computers

It goes to the point I manage to offend a lot of people with: the Engineers are my #1 heroes over any of this. Politicians (of all stripes) end up providing the funding in some way… the scientists come up with the theories and the Engineers and technicians do their best to make it happen… trying not to offend the sensibilities of the scientist (for their purity of concepts – Engineers often have to make do and use heuristics when the science isn’t quite there yet) or the politician (don’t waste our money.. even though it’s not their money! :P) – and yet they all work together in a strange kind of triangle that manages to push things forward.
