  1. Yes! Exactly what happened during 4 years of mechanical engineering studies.

    Incidentally, in many cases you can use Reality to achieve the Hopes, which I guess is exactly what engineering is about.

  2. Looks like it was made by user erdero for reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/gtysc/not_trying_to_discourage_anyone_but/

  3. Is it weird that I like the graphs just as much as the pretty pictures?

  4. Once you get to grad school, it gets a lot more awesome.
