Article on Test Proficiency

While looking up some LabVIEW details I came across this article about skills a test engineer should have. This dovetails nicely with quite a few blogs I've written. It will make you think.

Geeky humor

So I heard a joke from the CEO of my company yesterday that was told to him by a very rich, well-known engineer. Not to drop names, but he's on the same order as the guy who invented the mouse. They were discussing a startup company that's designing hydrogen fuel-cell technology:

A hydrogen atom walks into a bar, walks up to the bartender and says, "I've lost my electron. Have you seen him?"
The bartender replies, "Nope. Are you sure you lost him?"
Says the hydrogen, "Yes, I'm positive."

That joke was so bad, I came up with two others this morning. They're also bad, so naturally I had to share.

After the hydrogen atom has been at the bar a few minutes he looks at the clock on the wall in surprise. "Is it really that late?"
"Yeah," replies the bartender. "You have to leave already?"
The hydrogen atom nods. "I've gotta split."

And this one:

Before the hydrogen atom leaves the bar he sees an oxygen atom walk in with two blonde bombshells, one on each arm. He groans and says, "Now that's just not fair."
"What isn't?" replies the bartender.
The hydrogen atom points to the three and says, "There should only be one of those blondes per oxide."

I'm sure the job offers for joke writer at SNL will start any minute now.
