That is an excellent point, an engineer is only as good as the plans he draws up, after that they really do not have a clue. I worked for a long time
as primarily a welder but also a pipe and structural fitter, and I have to say, engineers are idiots. If it looks good on paper that is good enough
for them, some know but for the most part they do not know how to build what they are designing. I have had way too many occasions of having to have
engineers fix their mistakes, they would mark for a weld where there was absolutely no way to get one. They should have to do the actual work for at
least a couple years before they can get in the office and draw stuff up.
Case in point, my ex was dating an engineer, her dad was an engineer, they were trying to put something on a trailer, and where the drawings showed
the structure is wasnt there when they drilled into the fiberglass. "How dare some idiot that is making twenty dollars an hour decide to re engineer
what they are putting together". Well being an idiot that made twenty five dollars an hour putting stuff together that engineers designed I asked
her, did your sharp father and boyfriend take into account the insulation and fiberglass on the thing when they were measuring out for the structure.
I dont know she said, well two days later she called and said, yeah, you were right they didnt take into account for the insulation and fiberglass.
Uh huh, I could go on and on, I have had so many instances where stupid book taught dummies set us back so far to get projects done, because they
knew the proper loads, proper materials, codes, etc. However they had absolutely no idea how to actually build it. Sorry for the long post on that,
but it just struck a chord with me.
As for the posts being about sex, sorry but we are creatures that have a primal instinct for our blood line to survive. There are alot of posts
that joke to some extent, my previous one for example. However, to spread our seed is defninitely something that is going to be a consideration, even
if it is on a subconcious level. As for the preacher, I do believe she is as important as the doctor, she is going to be a glue that holds people
together. She will be a person that provides hope, but people that are totally against religion are not going to want someone to preach the good word
in their bunker, but the other people may want or need that comfort. Kind of goes with the old saying also, there are no atheists in fox holes, or
this case bunkers after nuclear holocaust.
