The World is a Better Place Because of Engineers

I think that we should all take a moment to give thanks to the engineers in our lives, without whom we would not be living in this modern, technological paradise. Truly, we live in an age of marvels because a whole segment of the human race has devoted itself to making scientific advances useful. For example:

The iBum Chair

Problem: photocopiers are expensive, uncomfortable, and generally can’t support the weight of an adult human. So photocopying your butt is an exceedingly difficult and potentially dangerous process.

Solution: a chair with a built-in photocopier that will automatically take pictures of your butt.

Next example:

The bikini that dissolves in water

I don't think that I need to explain the utility of such a garment. It's quite obvious.

And for these feats of technology -- and countless others -- we have engineers to thank.

So take a moment to thank the engineers in your life for what they do. Jeff the Baptist, Keith Taylor, Dad, thank you for making the world a better place.
