When is an electrical engineer not an engineer? When Arizona's state regulators decide to play word games

One a bit closer to home for many of us.

A physicist, a chemist and a software engineer were driving on an icy mountain road in Switzerland when their car lost control and skidded off the road. They all clambered out then went up to look at the crash site to figure out what happened.

"Ah I see", said the physicist, "it's a matter of physics. We simply entered that corner too fast and the laws of physics took over"

"No!" said the chemist, "the speed was fine, but the rubber on the tyres has become brittle during the cold! It's a matter of chemistry".

"Well I don't know what caused it", said the software engineer, "but lets push it up the hill and see if it happens again".
