Why I Am Not An Engineer: Reasons # 732 and 733

732: Just now whilst having an MSN conversation with someone on my laptop, which was precariously perched over a server (one that I own personally), I was eating a sandwich, made with bread sliced here at home (Edam, and burning hot mustard... mmmm), and a large peice of bread fell into the open case, while the server is running.

733: I will consider turning the server off and retrieving the bread off the motherboard, but not till after I have finished blogging about it.

Two of the many reasons I am in consultancy rather than hands-on in the field...
