Subject: The Programmer and the Engineer

---------------------- Begin Included Message----------------------

A Programmer and an Engineer were sitting next to each other on an
airplane. The Programmer leans over to the Engineer and asks if he wants to play a
fun game.  The Engineer just wants to sleep so he politely declines, turns
away and tries to sleep.  The Programmer persists and explains that it's a real
easy game.  He explains,"I ask a question and if you don't know the answer you
pay me $5.  Then you ask a question and if I don't know the answer I'll pay
you $5." Again the Engineer politely declines and tries to sleep.

The Programmer, now somewhat agitated, says, "O.K., if you don't know the
answer you pay me $5 and if I don't know the answer I pay you $50!"  Now,
that got the Engineer's attention, so he agrees to the game. The Programmer
asks the first question, "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" Then
Engineer doesn't say a word and just hands the Programmer $5.

Now, its the Engineer's turn. He asks the Programmer, "What goes up a hill
with three legs and comes down on four?"  The Programmer looks at him with a
puzzled look, takes out his laptop computer, looks through all his references and
after about an hour wakes the Engineer and hands him $50. The Engineer politely
takes the $50 turns away and tries to return to sleep.

The Programmer, a little miffed, asks, "Well what's the answer
to the question?"  Without a word, the Engineer reaches into his wallet,
hands $5 to the Programmer, turns away and returns to sleep.
