St. Patrick's Day
Many don't know that St. Patrick is the patron saint of engineers. Or maybe Mizzu just made it up. Either way, it's a good day to celebrate having the perseverence to make it through the toughest curriculum at any college. If I had a nickel for everyone I meet who says they dropped out of engineering because it was too hard, I might still be an engineer instead of going for the real money (but maybe the greed in me still would have defected). Incidentally, I think that, as a group, engineers are smarter than doctors, lawyers, etc. Just my empirical observation.
I'll give you one verse (of about 20) from a song about St. Patrick:
St. Patrick was an engineer, he was, he was.
I also saw on the History channel that St. Patrick was the first to discover (invent?) purgatory. I thought that an engineer solving the problem of what happened to good, but not perfect, people in the afterlife was apropos. Here is something that talks about the subject.
I also read somewhere that he used the clover to preach, saying that the three leaves represted the father, the son, and the holy spirit. This makes me wonder why a fourth leaf would be considered lucky -- wouldn't it have to be Satan?
