    These 'laws' were compiled by Dr. Dave Akin, head of the Space Science Lab at University of Maryland.

    While the list is about spacecraft design, the vast majority of the laws apply to all forms of engineering.

    You're obviously not an engineer if you can't find the humor in a bunch of those, FZ

    It is said: "the truth is out there".
    I'm going to exchange that by this sentence:

    "the truth is out there, but it is said by Dr. Dave Akin, who is out there too!"

    I've no word to say. It's really true. Nobody could sentence it clearer.
