|• It was interesting watching
acetone clean glassware before it was declared a carcinogen. I had very good teachers at Lyndhurst High
School who steered my choice of career programs.
|• A high score in a national test suggested that I might be
able to handle Chemical Engineering.
|• I liked computers but didn’t want to spend my life waiting
for punch card decks to be returned.
There were no PCs when I started my undergraduate studies. The computer scientists all had scruffy
beards and florescent white skin from staying indoors too much. Their diet consisted of pizza and
coke. A Chem Eng’s diet consisted of
pizza and beer.
|• My brother told me about his fraternity brother’s Chem Eng
job offers. My brother’s EE offer
wasn’t as good. My brother doesn’t do
EE anymore, either.
