      This is amazing and hilarious and a good story I'll start telling until all the software engineers I know get sick of me.

      I work in manufacturing and we have foiled product and weve done something similar to get rid of empties 😅

      This is a very cute analogy offering some thoughts about class and privilege with respect to formal education, intelligence, and work achieved.

      A classic! Reminds me of the quote:

      Any idiot can build a bridge that stands, but it takes an engineer to build a bridge that barely stands.

      Striking the balance between over or under-engineering is an art.

      I'm usually offended by "engineers are dumb" stories, but this is pretty amusing...
