>An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter checks
>>> his dossier and says, "Ah, you're an engineer -- you're in the wrong
>>> place." So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in.
>>> Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort
>>> in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a
>>> while, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators,
>>> and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.
>>> One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer,
>>> "So, how's it going down there in hell?" Satan replies, "Hey, things
>>> are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and
>>> escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come
>>> up with next." God replies, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's
>>> a mistake -- he should never have gotten down there; send him up here."
>>> Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm
>>> keeping him." God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue."
>>> Satan laughs uproariously and answers, "Yeah, right. And just where are
>>> YOU going to get a lawyer?"
