I remember my senior ME project, building a solar powered car.  My roommate got assigned to the project management group.  I was sent to drivetrain. I got the shaft.

Did you hear about the company that sells elastomeric insulators? Their motto is "resistance is butyl"

"Hot tap" is my personal favorite.

What is a hot tap? 

Also, do you tape squares, or are you an extrusion of a square, with a taper? I've been wondering this for more than a minute.

Hot tapping is when you drill into a pipeline with live gas (or whatever process fluid) in the pipe. We do it when we can't interrupt service to core customers, but you need to bypass the gas flow to do other maintenance downstream. It's kind of a pain, but really fun to say during conference calls.

Haha! The square taper bottom bracket is the height of bicycle bottom bracket design and a really elegant engineering solution. I use it as an example of how anything that comes after is an example of over-engineering and/or planned obsolescence.
