Engineering question:

Is the glass half empty or half full?

Remember to answer from an engineer's perspective.

I drank a glass of wine while that ran. It didn't require any machinery. No gears, cogs, or bearings were harmed in the drinking of my wine.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Shades of Rube Goldberg. Just needs a small steam engine to run it and it would be perfect.

I think the engineer already had a few when he thought that up.

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

Good one Harry. I thought Rube Goldberg was dead. I would imagine the young man's girlfriend would be out the door and gone by the time he had her wine poured. Good to see the younger generation thinking that hard though. lol
