Not with a t-shirt tat says LabView on it. You'd be the mocking staple of the real engineers ....

I throw several pool / bbq parties a year amongst my fellow engineers.

hehe, that's so true.

Random person:
So, what did you do in the weekend?

How i prefer to respond:
Nothing much.

The truth:
Added a synchronous motor rotary sparkgap to my tesla coil and added some overvoltage protection to the capacitor bank.


Just try telling a non-tech person what you actually did in the weekend, it never ends well.
You either confuse them or make them feel stupid.

Kinda depends if you're an introvert or extrovert.

Ah, An Engineering Mind.

Shame about what happened to that.
He left NI and they wanted to keep ownership of the "brand".
Even worse, he went onto into social media marketing  :o
