Nothing got delivered on time, project was a disaster-by-design and few months later customer became insolvent (ah the wonders of EU funds for "innovations").
You clearly don't understand the purpose of EU funds for innovation, then :-DD
Let me tell you a secret, because it seems like you are one of those Ukrainians in Poland. The reason anyone took his ass to the voting booth in 2003 is because EU promised free money. Turnover was so low that if those who voted no simply stayed home, we wouldn't even have joined. So... enjoy the ride :D
Reality is a social construct. None of what you see is happening for real.

Oh I do understand. Fun thing is guys who asked us to develop their idea were of "idealist" type who really wanted to change the world instead of just milking the cow. It ended like milking a bull - lost of noise but not much milk  ^-^

I met my first girlfriend in the queue to see the lasers at a university open day, she later went on to study Electrical Engineering. My present girlfriend works in I.T. and two of the best RF engineers I know are female radio amateurs in the USA, both experts in their chosen field.

Women in engineering ARE out there!!

Sorry guys, I decreased the available population of cute female engineers by marrying one of them.

Good Lord the whole politically correct thing has not invaded Ukraine. Enjoy while you have it.
I've suspected it's a troll account of one of the regulars from the start. It's mostly provocative posts and posting things like male erotica isn't quite typical for a Ukrainian.

She stopped being cute by marrying her? You must be quite a handful.

Who said there aren't any? But I bet you've seen more brilliant male engineers than female ones. Not saying they don't exist, but pretending their population is just as prominent as male is just for the sake of PC.

You don't even realize how strongly do we idolize Uncle Billy and гачимучи. It's not just a japanese phenomenon.

Let's look at it through a hypothetical "nerd index". Statistically, there are many more male nerds than there are female nerds. Guys are much more likely to spend inordinate amounts of time in their home shop, garage, or whatever place they are holed in, not eating much, hardly sleeping, working on a project. And it's this kind of persistence and determination to take your technical knowledge and skill to a very deep level. You probably won't be rich, but you will be consulted for things that nobody can even start brainstorming about.

Girls don't care about that kind of deep technical knowledge and skill. They want to  have a normal life :) Socializing, having lots of friends, and at some point having a family etc. And if a girl also has the looks, her chances of nerding decrease exponentially :) It takes a unique personality to go nerd when you can have so many more nice things going for you by just being an attractive girl. So I think it's the lack of motivation and interest in nerding that causes the big gap between male and female engineers.
