Engineers tired of being outshined by scientists
Einstein, Newton, Hawking — the heroes of science trip out of memory effortlessly. But where are the heroes of engineering, those doughty souls who built our modern world?

Tell me about it. We're really just scientists whose work has actual measurable and direct impact.

This makes me think of the quote from Sheldon of the Big Bang Theory:
"Engineering: where the noble, semi-skilled laborers execute the vision of those who think and dream. Hello, Oompa Loompas of science!"
