RE: Bad news Structural Engineer ??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you want to laugh at a movie structural engineer, watch the classic 70's
film, "The Towering Inferno".  The SE in there is an old guy (no offense to
older people-I'm trying to make a point) who appears for 2 minutes and says
some very funny things.  Of course, Paul Newman is the young, sexy and smart
Architect, who is so much cleverer than the owner, the engineer, and
everyone else in the building, and he saves the day, of course.
