I Suspect These Are Not, I Repeat, NOT, Engineering Students
You will notice they are unconcerned about maiming themselves, but they are worried about copyright infringement of a song they sing while they work. That’s what you learn in school, nowadays.
“This is the stupidest idea I’ve ever had,” yelled at the top of his voice. Magnificent.
There is a kind of beauty in their farmboy practicality. It has a hint of baling wire kludge to it that I find endearing. I also love the Intertunnel for turning “Benghazi” into the term for, as the Urban Dictionary defines it:
An attempt to cover a screw up so bad that it will cost you everything, then lie, get caught, & continue to lie to try & cover the lies.
And of course, like any good morality tale, there’s a lesson to be learned at the end: Remember kids, when you’re being dragged behind a pickup truck by a dog leash wrapped around a child-sized aluminum baseball bat while seated on a television set, look out for ticks!

“…old reliable…” I take exception to that! I am anything but reliable.
And still less expensive than high-speed rail.
I suspect that they’ve had some training in the discipline of back-40 engineering
I hope you’re wrong. These are the kids that know things. Like let go of the rope or you’ll scrape all your skin off. And lean back. Dumb ideas can be best ideas. It was someone like these dumb asses who decided to put pedals on a dandy horse to make a bicycle. I hope they become engineers and a I hope they go on to work for Elon Musk.
