    Uhhhh, just about every engineer has probably worked on some DARPA or DOD project at one time or another.

    Dave was at Draper Aerospace, not DARPA. Although technically, Draper does a lot of work with DARPA, so who the hell knows.

    I posted that because I just figured somewhere down the line in the tech-nerd thread, butthhurt would occur. Thus far...disappointment.:cool:

    Hah thanks! I lurk on here more often than I'm proud to admit, but upon seeing this gem of a thread I just couldn't resist the urge to log in. I'm sure a lot of independent engineers do/have done more than just one type of work. Imagine that?! Next on the amazing revelations list - dressing like Sam Hill doesn't actually make you faster, only douchier.

    Irony is an American calling out a Canadian on the subject of grammar.

    Is there a cure for Butt hurt?

    I think a portly southern "gentle"man gave it to me against my will.

    In hindsight I realize that the OP was joking around, though for the record I'm American.
