The “trophy” I have been so worked up about, the prize at the end of the NCARB's, the icon that distinguishes Architects from interns - is a butt-plug? I would say this is very anti-climatic, but for some it's surely the reverse. If it ever goes missing from the office I won't be concerned about things getting stamped, I'll be worried about the violation of the stamp itself! If it goes missing, even for a day, I will never touch it again.
ohmigod....I can't stop laughing long enough to come up with a response....
i could sure use one of those...
More hilarity!!! Thanks AP!!!!!
Saturn is less dense than water, but you need a bathtub the sizs of Jupiter to prove it. Hey architects, how would would plug a bathtub the size of Jupiter?
I guess it wouldn't work to use a smaller planet, like Uranus.
Boy, talk about going full circle!
damn, that is just to suggestive.....
I guess the idea is: you get your stamp, then you hand it to your client and bend over?
Nah, i'd rather think of a happier connotation. More like: "Getting your stamp feels really, really good!"
make sure you wash it in warm soappy water!!!
it could be worse, er, or is that better?
spot the guilty thief immediately...
well, now i know what really drove Phillip Johnson into architecture.
Are the powers that be trying to curb anal retentiveness of the profession?
"Ok, you're done school, you're done your exams, loosen up - this'll help!"
"Gee, it's nothing like my studio professor said it would be, it's really not bad at all!"
This is the best thread EVER!
its not very far from furniture porn
to architecture porn...
Leave those drawings on my chair -
I'll stamp them when I return.
LOL, oh god moak that's good...
This truly is the best thread ever...let's hear more....
Any more funny comments anyone? There must be more, the set-up seems rich with possibility, I mean are there really any two funnier-sounding words in English besides "butt plug"?
Except maybe "wealthy architect" hahahahahahaha.
"anyone seen my stamp?"
"oh nevermind; i was wearing it the whole time!"
...while plumbing the depths of troubles with my pipes, the engineers kept telling me i had to do something to increase my hoop stress...
Is that what the boss man meant when he said "I just don't have it in me anymore." And I thought he was referring to his design talent.
damn, i just shamped.
Some would prefer...
i'll add a side-riff here.
we stamp 'em out....
"Damn it, ink on my khakis again. That's the third pair this week!"
New light is shed on all those posts on Craigslist of folks looking for a licensed architect to stamp their plans...
The secret society of architects has many secret rituals....
So may suspicions were correct... the building department does involve anal rape. So long as I'm not tossing salads... oh wait, those are client meetings.
Boss: "I heard you passed the ARE. You must have really aced it, huh?"
Intern: "Nah, I sorta pulled it right out of my ass..."
this whole architect stamp thing is lost on me. my stamp doesn't look anything like that. did i get cheated?
No, Steven, you didn't - mine looks regular too. I'm just playing along because I find it so hilarious...
I used to always joke with my old bosses that they were "more of a man than me" (one of them was a woman - it's just a figure of speech) because they had taken the old four-day-charette exam while I just took the wussy little computer exam. Maybe the new computer exam requires an extra step in turning architects into "real men"?
careful ladieez, this is stamped on my heart...
My stamp is digital.
It's a object I dont mind inserting.
Once you have the responsibility inherent of "the stamp," its ergonomic shape is designed to hold in any of the bullshit you were used to throwing out before.
not to chime in on this one but i find the archinect 'go to bottom' button perfect for this thread.
says a fed up intern to his principle one late night after stamping the 12th 135 drawing set, "you could take this and shove it!"
"so," says the principle, "you've finally figured out what this is all about..."
plan checker: "don't you know that you need a means of escape in the bedrooms in case of fire?"
architect: "uh...nuh...din't know that...oh...ok..."
plan checker: "man, you got your stamp up ass!"
Perhaps that is why review agencies always want wet stamps on drawings...they know how much architects enjoy stamping things
I am curious why there are so many people here who are familiar with butt-plugs. It kind of freaks me out. ;)
How else would we stop all the bs that keeps leaking out of us.
Okay that was a bit gross
If it's "leaking" out that means that you've lost rectal tone. That generally only happens when something has been "over-stretched." Soo....yeah...grody. ;)
Ok, this conversation has definitely reached a repugnant level!
i wonder what nancy manguy would have thought of this thread...
Wait.... really? I mean designers came up with this? This confirms the strong drug use I suspected related to the profession. hehe.
I'm looking for some contemporary drapery ahrdware - and instead found this collection, called "space Probes".
Yeah, my humor is that of a 12yearold.
He he he he he. Don't ever lose that humor.
