It’s very fun having an interdisciplinary workplace and background. Last week, I was finishing up some work while a couple colleagues were discussing a problem. One was a physicist, and the other was an electrical engineer. They were arguing about how to determine some value when the physicist piped up with, “Just assume the widgets are ideal.”
I was trying hard to mind my own business, but it was too much: I burst out laughing. Loudly. It’s probably a good thing because they both stopped and looked at me before anything came to blows.
