5 things you didnt know about hardware engineers

1) If you see a hardware engineer on his knees in front of a girl, do not get the wrong impression. he’s probably just begging her to match her design’s clock domain to his, so he doesnt have to worry about timing issues in his design

2) If (miraculously) a hardware guy gets very talkative, you can immediately shut him up by casually mentioning how calls from your mobile seem to be getting dropped every once in a while. He’ll think it to be due to the bug he was too lazy to fix

3) Dont be surprised if you see a hardware geek at an Aerosmith concert. He’s probably just there to check out the Bose sound system

4) It is dangerous to offer anything stronger than iced tea to hardware engineers. They have been known to crack jokes about ethernet frames when high

5) Hardware guys hate software guys, because they get all the girls ( at least the ones that are aware of the existence of the other sex do)
