So in my FB feed there is this post/thread about how someone had lunch next to a table of boring engineers and then there are ten posts all in agreement that engineers are so “by the book”, lack common sense and are actually “stupid” and “Lack imagination” etc. So I mentioned yeah, we are by the book and those books are science, math, and engineering and I am so sorry that you all find that boring and much prefer professional wrestling and the Ark Encounter, LOL. That was a thread killer. I never get confrontational in Social Media, it’s a lost cause, I know. Back in the 60’s and 70’s, there was this incredible encouragement to pursue knowledge. I felt such a sense of awe and beauty. Being practically fatherless, I had mentors all along the way. I really hope there are younger people who will not be discouraged by the recent trends against science and intelligence.
