High Coolness Factor

I am an engineer; a civil engineer. Some find this boring, some find it cool. After “Pineapple Express”, where Saul (James Franco) declares that he wants to be a civil engineer when he grows up, I thought we were going to be the new cool kids. But maybe not… At work we have lots of old plans and maps, and it is exciting to open all these old drawers and cabinets and anticipate to find something cool and interesting from the old days. Recently I have found some old photos, and I have scanned some of them and posted them on my flickr page.

I really like this one. So it looks like back in the 1940s engineers dressed in suits, nice jackets and fedoras, with a cigarette perpetually hanging from their lips. They look stylish, they look neat; they look cool…
