Being an engineer doesn't mean diddly squat. My roommate from a couple years ago was going into some sort of computer engineering and he had no clue how to assemble a computer. I had the misfortune of guiding him on how to build one himself and I literally got a dozen calls from this guy on how to set it up. I was like, you're like two or three years into your engineering degree, haven't you learned anything?

I think this is quite sad. They shouldn't be able to graduate if they can't even assemble one. It's not like it takes a lot of brain power to assemble one.

it's not what schools teach. I've really yet to see a recent graduate arrive with a skill set that puts them into immediate use.

You know those cool Magic Erasers...the sponge like things that can remove almost anything from anywhere...I had one at work when I moved cubes to remove scuff marks on my desk from the previous messy person that had that space. And I noticed that I could get some junk off the plastic non-Mac (don't freak out here) keyboard with it, too. A coworker saw me use it and didn't know what the Magic Eraser was. She asked how it worked and I told her you get it a little wet and it works great. I went to lunch and she borrowed it. When I came back she was with an IT person at her desk staring at her dead keyboard. Apparently she went to the restroom, soaked the heck out of it and started to scrub her new, expensive ergo keyboard with it. LOL. Dork.

Magic erasers are amazing! That thing took scuffs off my walls I thought I'd never get out.

And that is my Mr. Clean plug for the day.
