Yeah, Umm... You do that Then

Everyone's favorite air strike target loopy slap happy president is at it again:

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sought to justify his confidence the United States will not attack Iran, saying the proof comes from his mathematical skills as an engineer and faith in God, the press reported on Monday.

Engineers are rightly famous for their habit of assuming they're experts at everything because they're experts at one thing*. I just didn't think one would manage to float this far to the top. Guess the pool's not all that deep, eh?

Via Yourish.

* The Pocket Protector Principle, if you will.

"The mathematics would work, if only it wasn't for all those damned people and their free will!"

Seriously, though, there's a surprising degree of unity among technical professions; a biochemist would understand economics better than most homeless drug addicts, though probably not as well as Alan Greenspan. Personally, I have a hard time believing Ahmadnutjob is any sort of engineer, as least as we understand the term. It's more likely another appellation dreamed up to give his demagoguery more legitimacy, like Dr. Nostrum's multiple Ph.D.s.
