Funny Engineering Conversions!

1 02 2010

Yes, Virginia, engineering conversions can be funny! A friend sent me this collection from A few of my favorites:

  • Ratio of an igloo’s circumference to its diameter? Eskimo Pi
  • 2,000 pounds of Chinese soup? Won Ton
  • Half of a large intestine? 1 semicolon
  • 2,000 mockingbirds? 2 kilomockingbirds
  • 10 cards? 1 decacards
  • 1 kilogram of falling figs? 1 Fig Newton
  • 1 millionth of a fish? 1 microfiche

Slip a couple of these into your next talk and give your audience a giggle.
