Remember to eat pie at both 1:59 AM and 1:59 PM. It's important!

What if I don't have pi? *panic*

Trader Joe's!!! Slow-motion run across the street. Also slow-motion scream "Need Pie!"

"Need Pi!"

Starts grabbing bagels, oranges ...

Toss me an orange, por favor.

My parents have a pie plate with the digits of pi written around it. Geek cool.

Were either of your parents Reedy?

Definitly not. KU alumni, actually. But my dad is an electrical engineer with the (now expired) ham radio credentials to prove it.

Gah, you think I'd remember that! Where the Hell is my Gingko...?

You know you're an engineer
When the word coax has two syllables.

Re: You know you're an engineer
Er, wait, oh yeah, it took me a minute to remember the one syllable version.

Re: You know you're an engineer
ditto... took me like 5 seconds to realize he meant "Coax" instead of "Co-Ax".

Bugger...

Oh, look! Time for Pi!

Re: You know you're an engineer
No, I meant co-ax...when I first heard this, I was similiarly momentarily confused.

Re: You know you're an engineer
We're all case and point :) But from what I know of both of you, you have a % of scientist in ya that I lack.

You know you're a scientist ...

Re: You know you're an engineer
I like to believe, deep down, I'm actually a mastermind villian bent on world conquest...which is not orthogonal to scientist, so I'll take the label :).

Same thing we do every night, Pinky...

Re: You know you're an engineer
What, there's another pronunciation?

I know I'm an engineer - I just passed my CEng - yay me :)

My niece's junior high school had a huge Pi day theme. Young suburban geeks unite!

And this reminds me the most honest consulting firm in the world:
PI consulting. Just pronounce the letters separately and you see how honest they are about their business.
