Don’t let your kids grow up to be engineers, Part 3

If you wondered about the practical value of academic computer science, here’s a Google PhD Summit attendee in the Everglades (90+ degrees in the shade) wearing long black pants:

    His doctorate could be in classical poetry. Are you sure he’s a computer scientist?

    academic computer science is far from engineering, it is a branch of mathematics that supposed to deal with P vs NP problem. Mathematicians do usually dress weird; best dressed of them are usually appointed head of department but even they can not keep the looks up all the time – this is a joke, #2, it could be 2 different people.

    Dude’s rockin a $300 Burberry belt . . .I don’t think comfort is the primary objective. I’m pretty sure that cost more than all the belts I’ve owned all put together.

    Let’s not criticize impractical dress in others. Where would that leave 4 inch heels and pencil skirts?

    Black is the best colour if you stay in the shade and it’s below 98. Black body radiation – n counterintuitive but ninth grade physics.

    Black pants + hornrims = optimal female repellent strategy

    If youve ever been to india, youll notice that all men seem to be wearing long trousers (ideally, jeans), despite it being even hotter and more humid than Florida…

    Insects are more to be feared than heat.

    Esteemed commenters:

    based on what information are you concluding the pictures are of 2 different people?

    I see some possibilities:

    1. Same person, female.

    Then the comment about repelling females with horn rim glasses seems strange, possible, but not likely.

    2. Same person, male with man boobs. Possible, but seem to be strutting a bit more than the typical man boobs.

    3. Two different motifs, in which the comments about the pants, horn rimmed glasses etc seem apt.

    Google should always have their PHD summits somewhere with brutal family law and a lot of women that know about it. (Not in a swamp) Chain the men to their computers for life!
