February 21, 2005: Engineers Week 2005. Will: Kepler, at some level, everything you see has had some engineer influence. Kepler: With all of that influence why don't they rule the world? Will: Easy. Observe. You can rule the world or I can give you this new PDA. Engineer: Does it have Bluetooth? Will: Just like that, business majors survive another day. February 23, 2005: Engineers Week 2005 Story Problems. 1. With their season cancelled, NHL players must adapt their puck flipping skills to earn a real living. Assuming they can flip 20 burgers an hour, eight hours a day, five days a week for 52 weeks a yer, how much do they have to charge per burger to gross the league average salary or $1.83 million? 2. Eschewing manual labor, some NHL players turn instead to art. What length must "x" be for this hockey stick mobile to work? 3. An engineer/NHL fan drives a Zamboni over an NHL negotiating lawyer, encasing him in tow inches of ice. If the lawyer's cold heart can only melt 1/4-inch of ice per month, will he escape in time to ruin the October start of the 2005-2006 season? Show your work! February 25, 2005: Kepler: To get more traffic on my blog page, I need a spectacular exclusive. That'll require some long hours and hard work! Uh... Or, I could just repeat some crackpot conspiracy theories! Mitch: Plenty of those to spare at the Democratic Underground.
