    Engineer as a Designer of the Human Body

    THEORY: When we know something but it doesn't work
    PRACTICE: When we can do something but don't know how it works

    An architect, an artist and an engineer were discussing whether it was better to spend time with the wife or a mistress.
    The architect said he enjoyed time with his wife, building a solid foundation for an enduring relationship.
    The artist said he enjoyed time with his mistress, because of the passion and mystery he found there.
    The engineer said, "I like both. If you have a wife and a mistress, they will each assume you are spending time with the other woman, and you can go to the lab and get some work done."
