Ask Question To Todd [of An Engineering Mind]

All Crazy Engineers,

Before you read the following post, visit following link -

An Engineering Mind

I got in touch with the engineering mind team and they told us they like CE 😀 . They are willing to spread the word about CE and you can help!

Ask your question to An Engineering Mind Team and have Todd answer your question. You may also come up with an idea you'd like Todd to talk about.

Shoot your questions!

How about high-tech chindogu designs? Have they designed any examples or een involved with a contest?

Hey, I have a very stupid thing going in my mind.

Should engineers always put their engineering minds in every aspect of their day to day life? If YES what benefits they get after doing so and if NO how they can use their engineering minds in their day to day life from eating to sleeping things.

[ PS: Please control your anger/laugh at my question ]

yes, however much more technological than these traditional ones, being engineers we could create some real high tech items! =)

I'm collecting questions & content ideas for 'An Engineering Mind'. I bet Todd would come up with something interesting for us 😉

I was reading a comment on one of his videos by a female engineer. She said she also believed in big foot. I laughed at that one 😛

One question!

What is the typical diet of an engineer?

One more question is coming in my stupid mind. This question is firstly open for all engineers here.

Is it possible to use some engineering mechanism while soaking many clothes each of which leaves behind its colour in a single bucket in such a manner no other cloth gets affected by the colour of the other one?

Hope people could understand my question. 😔 (Note using only single bucket to avoid colour mixing of clothes on one another 😔 )

1. Suppose you are in a room full of toddlers. How would you guess which one of them will grow up to be an engineer?

2. How do engineers celebrate valentine's day?


3. What do you get when you cross an engineer and
a) an accountant
b) a news reader
c) a journalist
d) an archaeologist
e) a novelist
f) a musician

4. How would an engineer's horoscope based on his/her sun sign look like?

5. Which animal is an expert in which engineering field?

Hey cool questions raj. I am desperate to know the answers. 😉

Or the development of a safe chemical that either retards the loss of dye or keeps it suspended within the water, not allowing it to stain other garments. This can be added to the laundry cycle or the detergent thus eliminating the need to replace the machines.

There is engineering in every thing we do. For the matter of fact, there is some much engineering in our own body. I'm a firm believer that any creation by an engineer has a scope for further improvements and innovations. My questions are-

1. If human body (especially brain) was an engineers creations, what would you do to improve its performance and efficiency?
2. Given a chance to recreate a human body part the way you like, which will it be? And what modifications will you do?

Oh no. I guess right now there is no such chemicals made. For this I will have to wait long for our chemical engineers to make such chemicals. 😔

No other way ?
Q. Would engineers be perfect candidates for heads of states?

Bigfoot is for the North American Continent what the Abominable Snowman is for the Himalayas and Chupacabra for South America.
A supposedly ape like giant. Some people claim to have sighted Bigfoot but it's existence is doubtful and has not been proved.

Here's one more idea inspired from 'Games People Play'. How about "Games (Crazy) Engineers Play"? 😉

there have also been sightings in: europe, Russia, bars at closing time(laugh) & south america. Also a small version as well in some locations

I think he is working on new site for an engineering mind. His blog says the new site will be up by 1 March. But it's still not there. I guess he's busy.

My name is Todd and I work on LabVIEW graphical programing software at National Instruments.

If you are an engineer, I would love to hear what's on your mind. If you're not an engineer, then none of this will make any sense, so go back to
YouTube and look up "funny animals" or something. I'm sure you'll understand that.

--Todd


OMG!! ROFL
LMFAO!!



Ok my question:

1.) How to differentiate between an engineer and a creative engineer?

2.) Why do all engineers have a habit of day dreaming??



haha can't wait for the replies 😁
Kaustubh Katdare
Kaustubh Katdare • Jun 29, 2009
I'll ask Todd to check this thread and respond. Hopefully he'll pick up few ideas from here 😉

A real engineer never stops building things - even imaginary things. Also, a real engineer never stops taking things apart; particularly the things they built (or maybe it was some other engineer?).

P.S. that last question is an auxiliary; it shouldn't bother any real engineer. Nutty engineers also consider occasionally how real a thing they were constructed by (some of these nuts call this "Darwinism") and insist that anything an engineer can build is because all engineers were also constructed. After all physics is like s*x, we do it because we enjoy it. But we shouldn't think we can build anything just because we can in principle. It might not be a great idea, for starters, to try moving the planet.
