Are engineers/techies boring?

  1. Feb 10, 2010 #1
    I joined this site to get away from the rampant stupidity of other forums, but I find myself getting bored extremely quick. Is this a non-social environment or something? or have our educations made us boring? I can't quite figure this place out.

    The kind that go for fisherman's bait. If I only had my experiences to go by, I'd say there are none.

    Do you really think it's us that's boring? Maybe this is more your problem than ours. Is there anything interesting about you? Such as a poker chip painted by H. Matisse that you use to fill an eye socket left empty by a freak accident with a gyroscope?

    Check out some of the GD classic threads, 2004 was a good year for the GD froum. And engineers cant be boring because most of them are weird.

    I think it's just the problem that message forums just get tedious. It's not scientists/engineers that are boring as a people, it's the internet.

    Solution: Get off your computer, go out, and get a life! :P

    Serious is boring if you aren't serious yourself.

    Judging by the thousands of users who log in and post everyday from all over the world, I'd say we are the exact opposite of non-social. :approve:

    Also, I dare say that having an education gives one more things to talk about. At least more interesting things, in my opinion.

    Lastly, we are most certainly not boring! :cool:
