Thank goodness, some fresh blood. Maybe we can get our Engineering School back.

I think it's interesting that a Mechanical Engineer is "a perfect fit" to be Dean, when we don't have Mechanical Engineering and have been told by millennials (who have the world figured out much better than their elders) that it's an archaic and dead major.

Looks like she has a biomedical background.

It's apparently so archaic, Pete, that a biomedical engineer can even teach it. :roll:

Of course it's archaic, nothing ever moves or needs to not move anymore....

Well, duct tape and WD40 have already been invented, so.....

So true! As we learned at Boy Scout summer camp- Silence is Golden, Duct Tape is silver!

I can personally attest that duct tape (we had green tape from the shipbuilder, Electric Boat, called “EB Green”... but it was duct tape) is good to deep ocean depths on a nuclear submarine.

Once while we were radiating on our retractable radar while surfaced, the bridge watchstander noticed that the glass lens on the radar face was delaminating. It’s not something you can glue at sea, at least not with anything we had aboard, and a clamp would have prevented it from properly retracting into the submarine’s sail, which is vital for quietness and laminar flow. So we EB Greened/ duct taped it. Now, sea pressure increases by 44psi for every 100 feet deeper you go, so at the depths we operate there was going to be a LOT of pressure on that duct tape repair. We didn’t expect to see that lens again but sure enough it was still there the next time we surfaced.

From then on, the byword was: “EB Green, good to test depth.”
