    It would work considerably better with physicists rather than engineers :dry:

    in order to differentiate anything, one would need a function. What I said implied that engineers have no function in society and hence one cannot differentiate engineers.


    p.s. i hate physics. lol

    That doesn't even make sense. It's like saying we can't differentiate this equation

    x^2 + y^2 = 1 because y isn't a function of x (and can't be rearranged to become one either). Except we can differentiate it...

    I agree with ukebert that this would work better, but not actually work, if you said physicists.

    Go home.

    it was only a joke at the expense of engineers. don't have to get worked up about it.

    The irony being that Engineers fulfill one of the most vital functions within society.

    f(x,y) = 1

    So it is a function...

    I understand that. What I don't understand is how engineers don't have a function when clearly the advancement of society is down to engineers.

    I think it would work better for both mathematicians and physicists, even though I'm applying to joint honours maths and physics at uni.:p:

    Haha fair enough. I meant a function of one variable but I take your point.

    yes they probably do, but other professions are also equally vital functions within society. one could simply engineers to another profession, e.g. doctors, economists, musicians, accountants, etc, and the joke would still work. lol

    Ok before the physicist hate goes on much further, can I just say QUANTUM PHYSICS. :p:

    it's suppose to be a joke at the expense of engineers. but of course engineers, like everyone else, have a function, in fact some might argue that they have more than a function.
