Why Engineer?


I nicked this from a friend. She was forwarding some emails to a few of her friends and a friend of a friend share this one interesting fact about marrying an engineer. The original version, according to her was in Chinese; it was from Hong Kong, and she manage to share it in English with a little help from her Engineer boyfriend.

When it comes to choose your husband, please compare the Engineer with the following work profession:


Almost any woman would go for a doctor. Do not put too much hope that your marriage will last more than 5 years. This is because he will runaway with another nurse, or fall in love with a teenage girl who pretended to be sick. This kinda thing usually and always happened when you have a few children with him.

This will not happened to your Engineer husband because he is always busy that sometimes the time you spent together is less, not to say having affairs.


Do you think you can really spend your life with someone who earn a living by cheating and manipulating? And to keep an honest and trusty relationship?

You don’t have to worry your Engineer husband. That’s because his poor social skills render him unable to cover all his lies. There is a risk if you’re married to a lawyer, that he will always win a divorce lawsuit and you end up with nothing.


His reliability is worse than a Lawyer. Further more, he need to leave home more often and having classes and discussion with someone who have the same belief and target. Do not be surprised if one day you are being invited to a big party of 1000 people.

Your engineer husband however will always be trapped in office for work. Other than going home, he has no place to go.


The reason for a man to work as teacher, is that he will be surrounded by pretty and young students everyday. Therefore, he will be going to jail soon for ‘playing’ with the underage and you will need to find a new husband for yourself.

Other dangerous profession e.g fireman, construction worker etc, if you are married to one of them, if he didn’t passed away due to accident, then he might hurt his spine and causes ED (Erectile Dysfunction). And the worst of all, that is the time when you are sexually active a.k.a. HORNY! LOL!

The only risk that your engineer husband need to face is the computer because it will damage his eye sight. This risk is beneficial to you because when you get older, he will not notice the wrinkle due to his eye sight problem. However, they have good a memory and will always remember how pretty you used to be. If you are worried that he’s going to look at another young pretty girl, go ahead and ask, “Dear, why do you keep looking at her?” He will answer you honestly, “I can’t even see her face clearly!”

Benefits of marrying an Engineer :-

  1. Engineers don’t care about his surroundings, so you don’t have to keep your house too clean.
  2. Engineers having trouble finding themselves a girlfriend, so he will be extremely loyal to the present one.
  3. Engineers are boring, they do not follow the fashion and society. They only live in their blueprints and drawings, so you don’t have to purposely entertain them.
  4. Engineers love to fix things as entertainment. You could smash things in front of him when you are mad and he will be willingly happy to fix it for you and you don’t have to pay for it.
  5. Engineers’ IQ are high, after you married to one, you will have smart children like him and do well in academics. Plus you can boast around your neighbour that you are proud of your children.
  6. Engineers spent their time in laboratory more than spending time at home. So you will still be free even after marrying him.
  7. Engineers have poor communication skills. You can always play words with him and he is unable to fight back.
  8. Engineers always talk logic. If what you say is logical, he will listen to you. If he think what he say is logical, you can argue and don’t have to go along with the logical way and he has no choice but to agree with you.
  9. Engineers have well paid salary. They do not spend a lot of money for themselves and hardly any other woman spend their money. So you can spend his money wisely, and tell them this is to improve the economy.
  10. Engineers do not have other attractive points other than those stated above. so you do not have to worry them having affair after marrying them.

Hmm, but I’m a hybrid Engineer, how?


The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
