Gary,
 
Some little things cling to your memory although perhaps they don't deserve to.
I remember his explanations of what a free drop or a free fall is.
It did not make him soung like a mechanical or civil engineer.
It was not just trying to be understood, it was a plain inaptness.

    How does an engineering specialist speak?&nbsp; If he is addressing a
    group of engineers, perhaps his terminology will contain a lot of
    engineer-speak, but if he is addressing a larger broader body of
    people, then it may be in easily understood terms.&nbsp; The main
    objective of anybody is to communicate with fellow workers, friends
    and the public and engineers are not generally good at that.
    Although most of the writers on this forum are better than most
    engineers including me.<br>
