Why do we love engineering so much?

The answer is "It's cool" but it must go farther than that, but it's all I can come up with.

I get the same satisfaction with inventing or a shred guitar riff, but only by those 3 things

I don’t think you can “come up” with much in anything.

Umm, we don't - that's why we're architects, not engineers.

I would slightly rephrase Atelier... we’re architects with engineering skills.  So we do are little architectural tricks knowing the engineering and physics will work.  Engineers understand the physics, but struggle to go beyond that to achieve a style or aesthetic impact.  We understand the physics of this, and the aesthethic whereas a engineer might just be content with a dome..

Sometimes I do love what engineering can do, but only under proper supervision!

Wanker posted his real name a While back... likely in a comment that was nuked and I have a good memory.

Based on the posts I've seen on here, I think he must have mistook her for an engineer....

you may love engineering; I don't particulalrly.

engineers are necessary evil in building things - that's how I see it

I love engineering, because if it weren't for engineers I would have to draw my own wiring diagrams, and write my own specs for things like ductwork insulation and pipe identification signage, and I don't want to do those things.

If you're looking for more than that level of appreciation for engineering, I would guess there are forums for engineers, somewhere.
