When I was in high school, I told my father I wanted to apply my math and science abillities to doing some good in the world. He replied, "Then you'll be an engineer, and I'll kill you if you do that. "

(He was a second-generation engineer; I am a fourth-generation engineer from my mother's side of the family. My elder grandson doesn't know it yet, but his dad and I are already prepping him to be a 6th generation engineer.)
