Engineer humour

Overheard in the classroom at Polytech:
Q. "What's a radian?"
A. "A slice of Pi."

"This Fourier analysis stuff is complex."

At the moment, we're doing a design project in groups of four or five. The project is to design a "healthometer" which will assist in managing a user's fitness over a period of time. Since it may be available to users in different countries, the subject of measurement and units came up in a group meeting. At one point, we got talking about the metric system, centipedes and millipedes; naturally, the question followed - "How many legs does an Imperial centipede have?"
