I brought a psych major friend of mine to a party with a bunch of LA’s. She wandered off to get a beer, and came back with an alarmed look on her face. She whispered, “Who is this Larry guy and why does everyone hate his guts?!”February 2, 2009 at 6:56 pm #175342February 4, 2009 at 8:28 pm #175341

If your choices were mostly

b. You’re a landscape architect. With designs both ecologically friendly and attractive to the community, landscape architects are well recieved by all people except Architects. Too bad there’s this thing called rain.
c. You’re a city planner. You actually understand that a site does not exist in a vacuum and ought to fit into its context. Unfortunately, there’s very little you can do about it.
d. You’re a civil engineer. Your designs are solid and work, as they follow the best way of solving the problem. Fortunately there are architects to mess things up so not everyone’s living in a box.
e. You’re a contractor. You don’t really care what’s being built, only how it’s built. Or maybe you don’t care much about that either.
f. You’re a developer. You actually get stuff built that 99% of the population finds agreeable. Too bad the other 1% just happen to be the people in the neighborhood where you’re building.February 4, 2009 at 8:29 pm #175340
