Since it looks like the engineer profession is over represented around here, I thought I might as well ask...

There was once a comment in a post describing a posh bike shop as the place to go if you wanted to watch a dentist get fitted on a Cervelo. Still cracks me up.

I answered no, I'm a university prof that rides more then teaches. Got my priorities right.

Wait a minute - are you just trying to out the dentists?

I've always theorized that an engineer invented the dentist joke as a diversion from having their own careers in the spotlight.

Where's the "I studied engineering but ended up in IT" option?

I'm a design engineer, so technically I suppose I am.

Haha, +1.

Does working with aerospace engineers all day count as well? They're exhausting. Best feedback I ever got was: "It's not horrible".

I think that this poll is destined to suffer from a certain level of participation bias. As the saying goes, how can you tell if someone is an engineer?

Dont worry, they'll tell you.

The amount of money I just handed over to my dentist I might as well bought him a Cervelo!
