    There is a saying in engineering.

    Anyone can build a bridge.

    It takes an engineer who can build a bridge just strong enough to let cars cross it.

      Oh man, as a (non structural) engineer I love the saying

      “Any asshole can build a bridge, but only an engineer can barely build a bridge”

        I’ve heard it as “Anyone can build a bridge that stands, it takes an engineer to build a bridge that barely stands.”
