while eating Japanese -
me (pointing to the bubbling hotpot) :
"this portion is cooked but not that one. the heat dissipation of this thing, it's not uniform."
engineer buddy :
"hey, i thought you're not an engineer?"
eleh, what, only engineers can know a thing or two about heat dissipation, is it? moments like these amuse me. come on lah, it wasn't like i was spewing technicalities about the inner-workings of a rocket engine or explaining the concept of the national grid system.
