If you are confused with the title you haven’t seen the joke shared regularly that goes something like this.
Some asshole who had too much free time on his hands asked another bunch of assholes with too much free time on their hands, if they could put a four between a five.
Arts student: Impossible.
Commerce student: What does this even mean?
Blah blah blah (by the time I reach this part of the joke, I’ve lost half by blood due to evaporation caused by boiling due to hatred.)
Finally, the punchline which is more like a punch to intelligence, virgins, and everything else pure is:
Engineering student: It’s so simple, F(IV)E. (IV is the roman numeral representation of four).
WOW! ENGINEERS ROXXX! I CAME IN MY PANTS! PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE IF YOU ARE A MORON WHO THINKS THAT AN ENGINEER IS AMAZING BECAUSE OF THIS ACT OF GENIUS WHICH IS BELITTLING TO EVERYTHING EVER CREATED, INVENTED OR DISCOVERED!
What is wrong with everyone? Even the joke isn’t airtight. I mean, can only an engineering student come up with it? Not somebody who has already finished engineering and is working? And what branch of engineering are we even talking about? I’ve never seen a field of education degraded so much by a group of bozos before. Engineering is about solving complex problems. Building bridges, constructing freeways, inventing machines that provide maximum throughput while consuming as little fuel as possible, building systems that can allow a million people to simultaneously communicate with zero latency… to name a few. Engineering is about optimization, tradeoffs and losing hours and hours of your life trying to come up with something which when you finally get is so beautifully simple it brings a smile on your face and makes life worth living. It makes life simpler for generations to come who’ll probably never even realize the thought and passion that went into producing it. But engineers don’t care about that.
And what happened to this field. It was filled with shitty fucks after shitty fucks with no passion or no inspiration but with the only excuse that their parents wanted them to be in engineering. I just have one thing to say to these people: FUCK YOU! I had to argue with my family to get into engineering because we weren’t well enough to afford it. And when I see these countless people bitching about how they have their lives are so tough because they are forced into engineering, I can’t help but repeatedly punch the wall out of disgust.
Initially I felt, hey I can’t blame these guys they are just forced into it. But over time I realized that these are the same kind of people who would argue with their parents for hours if they won’t let them get the brand of shoes they want. Yeah makes sense, shoes are more important than what you are going to be doing for most of your adult life. Strangely, these are the same kind of people who would leave their beloved for the parent’s choice for marriage. What’s it with people not wanting to choose what they will be doing? Get the pun? No. This is why I hate you.
PS: Can we stop insulting arts and commerce students and stop treating them like step children?
